My New Oil Tank...

Just got my new oil tank a few days ago. FINALLY got a few parts to start working on the Sportster again. This tank came from Spitfire Motorcycles and it is BEAUTIFUL. Worth every penny I paid for it AND it shipped super fast. I ordered it on late Friday and had it by Wednesday. Not bad for crossing the whole country. If you need an oil tank check these guys out. I don't get anything for promoting them, I'm just that damn impressed with the tank. I'll post more pictures of it during and after mounting it on the bike.

Look at stack of dimes around that neck. The cap is a solid piece as well. All the welds look great and I can't wait to see how it looks on the bike.

They have two other styles for the ends, but I liked this one the best. It's a little different than the usual tank.

Another view of the welds. Check em out, for $149 plus shipping it can't be beat. Spenser never wants me to buy anything, he always wants to make it and even he said buy it.


  1. Get going on that thing! I want to see it on the road!!!

  2. Well, the frame is a new Flyrite Scorcher, the motor is around an '89 or '90. It was restamped by the S. Carolina HP with new numbers so I'm not sure. At least I hope that's who stamped it, google shows that to be probable. I'll be calling them soon to verify it. Hopefully Alabama won't give me any crap about it.

  3. Can't wait to see it all hooked up buddy. Get a move on!

  4. Wow, $149 is a deal. Looks great, should look really good on the bike. Hows it going to mount?

  5. Don't know yet, gotta get it to the shop so I can mock it up. I'm going by there after work to check it out. I'll be out of town again this weekend so it's my only chance for a little while.
