I copied this from the Facebook page explaining the current situation. Please bear with him
Good morning, please accept my apologies for not getting back in touch, I'm currently suffering from knee problems which are causing mobility issues, however thanks to my local hospital physiotherapist things are slowly improving. We're still having problems locating the spares which are currently in several garages, unfortunately I don't know what is where as we had to move everything so quickly last year. I am aware that orders are overdue and I will be in touch with everyone as soon as I'm able to move around better. If you call our landline number please could you at least leave your name as it makes it easier for me to check back, thank you.
Thanks Chris for posting our situation on here much appreciated, however I'm still suffering with mobility issues following a recent fall whilst at home this has aggravated my knee problem which was going okay until then. We had been looking at a suitable workshop/storage area close to our house which was up for auction at 15k unfortunately it went for 35k to a couple from London who hope to convert it to a one bed dwelling, so our spares are at present still in much of a muddle in three garages all I can do is apologise for the further delays in catching up with the back orders that we have, but due to our current ongoing situation I hope you will understand. To add to our stock storage issues the estate management which own the garages are looking to sell up and redevelop the site for housing so we may have to sell off all the Reliant and Bug spares in the future unless we can find a workshop or suitable storage nearby.

burlmeister: m looking for a replacement petrol tank. Does anyone produce them? Secondly, I need to replace the tyres. There is a sign in the car and in the handbook, only cross ply tyres to be fitted. No idea why this should be. Are cross ply tyres still available?

ady: For the petrol tank try looking up triggergas on ebay, he might be able to make you one. You can fit radial tyres, most people do. There is plenty of choice of tyre for it as they are the same size as a Mini. You can still get crossplys if you want
