Finding an oil tank for the early Harley Sportster K model's has been a difficult task until now. These reproductions have all the accurate stampings and sizing as the originals. They feature cleaner welds for a more finished look.
- Show chrome-plated
- Includes screw-in dip stick
- Mounting hardware NOT INCLUDED
- 3 fittings are #3 SAE O-ring boss (3/8-24 threads) and the feed fitting is #5 SAE O-Ring boss (1/2 -20 threads)
Good price, good quality, fast shipping and oil tank was exactly as advertised..
Very nice tank. Shipping was super fast and nicely packaged. One thing to be aware of is it seems to be a copy of the 62507-52B tank. This version doesn't have the feed fitting on the front lower area of the tank. The fittings on the front of the tank are vent, return, and chain oiler. You have to use what appears to be the drain for you feed. This requires a 1/2"-20 straight thread 90deg 3/8 barb fitting. This fitting should be made available as it is unusual to find. I chose to weld a 1/4" NPT fitting on the bottom of the tank. Mine will be blasted and painted black so that is an option. If you want to keep it chrome you'd better figure on coming up with a fitting. The chain oiler hole can not be used as a feed since it has a stand pipe inside. Other recent repops I've seen lately are a copy of the 62503-52 tank which has 4 fittings. You also must make the pieces that clamp the tank to the frame tubes.
This tank is very nice, perfect chrome work and all the fittings are NPT like the orginal. I have an OEM black horeshoe tank to compare too side by side. They both look identical in every regard. It even came with the dip stick.
