Knucklehead Gas Tanks
Knucklehead Gas Tanks
Reproductions of the 3-1/2 gallon Knucklehead gas tanks as used from 1936–1946, made to accept the Skull/Cateye dashplate and cover plus hand shifter gate. The 1936-1939 version accepts the stock type left and right petcocks, the 1940-1946 is made for push-pull gas valves and features all mounts for emblems and strips.
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.
- for Skull/Cateye dash panel
- 13 l
- required gas cap: cam-style 1936-1954 / 2 x vented

Tankdoc Gas Tank Restoration Kits
A complete system by the German company Busch to restore common motorcycle gas tanks. Cleaner, rust remover and sealant - the set contains them all. The high performance components will clean out even bad cases of corrosion and will dependably seal hairline cracks and small holes. Within 8-12 hours the sealant can be applied repeatedly which extends sealing mileage by up to 100%.
KRM Tank Cleaner and Sealer
Formerly Kreem, now KRM: Recommended for older gas tanks which are rusty or dirty on the inside. Tank prep A & B remove corrosion and prepare the surface for the KRM Sealer. The Sealer cures hairline cracks (not holes!) and its tough white skin permanently seals the tank and permanently protects it against rust. One bottle contains enough sealer for tanks up to 13 liters capacity.

Most castings feature raised numbers and markings just like the factory used them. The brake shaft tube has pressed-in bushings which are reamed to size. Each frame comes with its year correct toolbox mount.
