Paughco Mustang Gas Tanks

Paughco Mustang Gas Tanks

These tanks are a bolt-on fit to Sportster models from 1957–up. They have a capacity of 4 gal. which allows longer gas stop intervals.

All gas tanks by W&W Cycles are delivered unpainted and unsealed. Before the paint job and final installation please consider the following:

  • We consistently receive tight gas tanks from the manufacturers, both Custom and OEM replacements.
  • Problems mostly occur during or after installation. Hence, BEFORE a pressure test and BEFORE painting - a probationary (STRESS-FREE!) installation is highly recommended. Any leverage on the tank mounts spells trouble. Better use our selection of small parts.
  • To avoid corrosion always fill your tank to the max during longer downtimes or seal it on the inside.

  • 15.8 l
  • required gas cap: cam-style 1936-1954 / 1 x vented
  • petcock thread: M22 x 1

Mustang Gas Tanks

When the Bobbers became Choppers in the early Sixties one of the mandatory changes was a small gas tank. Lacking a well-stocked aftermarket for Custom parts the boys had to be creative and used what was available from other bikes. The gas tank of Mom´s old little Mustang motorbike, for example, was just perfect with the right size and a nice teardrop shape. The Mustang was a lightweight motorcycle built by Gladden Products Corporation in Glendale, California, from 1946 to 1965. This style soon became popular and it didn´t take long before the first aftermarket gas tanks appeared which had adopted the design.
