Vintage Tank ID, Anyone?
« on: October 07, 2018, 09:03:32 pm »
Just thought I'd try to draw on the diverse knowledge of the group... Does anyone have an idea/suggestion/opinion about what this tank came from? Notice the four-point mounting and, obviously, the factory mount for a gauge.

Thanks, brothers!

Thanks, Jigger, but nothing I found in Cushman. The only brand with tank mounted gauges I've found is Arial, but none of those seem right, either...

This may be no help to positive ID, but I do not think the gauge looks factory stock. I say that because all the bungs welded were by MIG, the tank shell looks to be MIG, but the gauge tunnel is TIG welded. That says to me "custom" or "non-stock".

Just an idea.

It's probably a Wassel or peanut tank, with mounts cut off, new ones added,  plus the amp guage. From a custom bike, could be anything..
