| We completed the
hidden mount of the oiltank using a section of pipe that we prepared
with 2 blind nuts, so the oiltank wil appear to almost float in
the frame without any visible brackets.
| We cannibalised
an old Harley oiltank to use the internal filter system and made
a large cutout in the oiltank to make room for the rear chain.
The half circle that you can see on the bottom of the oiltank
is where the original filler cap used to be; we used part of the
stock 1964 oiltank mounted upsidedown.
| The original filler
opening was closed with a piece of sheetmetal and the opening
for the chain was used to clean up the welds with the planishing
hammer. The original return line on the oilfilter was welded shut
and a new internal oilline fabricated that will exit through the
bottom of the tank. A lot of time was spent on smoothing the oiltank
because we are considering maybe nickel plating it so no filler
can be used.
