    The old 45s were like that.

    They may be better served using the male and female original 45 designs basis, then the tanks would have a balanced visual as well as getting the mountings and oil lines on the underside for maybe a cleaner look. But hey, their thinking outside the box. What’s new is old or old inspired.

    Before someone nips at the previous comment, the original DL 45 HD and RL 45 HD models did not have the male and female as did not the later WR racers, nor did any other of anyones 3 cap tanks with a partitioned side to my knowledge. I was only referring to the original male/female 45 HD WL, G, etc. design basis.

    Indian did it all the way to their end in 1953. I kinda likes how some of the British bikes did it too with the oil in the top frame tube.

    Looks cool but who wants to stop every hour for gas?

    weve done simillair tanks..very cool look, very hot knees, oil on a good day in florida runs at 180 degrees..very hot on the leg. but sometimes it hurts to be so cool! nice tanks

    The good thing is the oil is usually kept cooler being in the airflow better than than if it were behind the engine. And because it’s gravity fed, you can get by with a marginal oil pump. I have heard about some folks saying that heat radiates up from the engine to the tank and their oil boils but I’ve never seen that happen in the 20 years I’ve riddin my chief. I never saw it happen in my old HD 45 either. The old trick with the Indians is to run the gas in your left tank first before you switch over to the right tank. The gas adjacent to the oil in the right tank helps keep the oil cool. And it seems to work. On my harleys with the tank under the seat, the oil tank gets way hotter than the side of my Indian’s oil tank which is contained within the right gas tank.
    It’s a good idea, even for Harleys…

    I like the idea of the oil and gas together. it would free up space above the trans. these guys from deville cycles they can’t guarantee a pressure test. are there any other sources besides the 45 reproductions?
