I cant really decide what kind of oiltank and rear wheel that would look best in this frame.
It had a horseshoe oiltank, but i really want a round one - but will it look good? It will be kind of much open space on the other side of the tank no matter wich side i choose to have it on.
Could be a possibility to make the tank slip onto the downtube on the frame though..
Rearwheel is 15", but i have been thinking of a 16".

Need some input on this please.

I prefer round tanks but coming from a hotrodders point of view, if you can find one an old beaten Moon one from a swap meet always looks ace although now there getting hard to find and expensive!

Verticle be-hive would look cool, I was going to use the oil filter (modified) off a/my '59 cadi motor although not sure it would be big enough for a Harley...

I'd try and think of something a bt different and cool rather that a horse shoe if i could help it, but that's just my 2...

Ok, so now i have got myself a oiltank from ebay..its a round one with center mounted filler.
I cant really decide on this :mad: Will it look stupid to put the oiltank on the "left side" (close to the wheel)? Look at the attached picture.
I think it would be better to have it on the "right side", but then i have a mounting problem as the tank already has pre-welded mounts and center mounted filler cap - and its chromed (expensive tank to rebuild then...:rolleyes: ). Maybe i can angle the tank towards the engine a bit so the filler cap doesnt point right up in the air (my balls)?
I`m going vacation for a week now, and when i get back i have some nice parts waiting for me at the post office from "over there". Then i can start build this thing :)
