The time has come to finally mount my tank on the frame. I have run into a few setbacks, the stock petcock that I assumed would be fine hit on the top of the motor when mounting. I ran through a few options in previous post (Frisco mount) but did not care for the look! I wanted it to be as I originally intended. So this is what I came up with.
This is a spiggoit style petcock like you would see on your house for your hose…haha
Leather washers on all the tank mount hardware for vibration reduction. Plus they look cool!
Even with this it just clears the nuts and top of the motor…few
Hard to see in the lighting in my garage but I think the shape of the handle complement the scallops on the tank and the blacks go well together. Here I used a Petcock Adapter from the stock 22mm Harley to 3/8 inch to connect the new Petcock. Can also be bought from Amazon here in Chrome.
And now the whole bike from all angles. Will look 10 times better out in the sun light but I still need to wire up the taillight and get the front brake line on (still waiting on the custom SS line in the mail).
