Cannonball WR Style Gas Tanks

Cannonball WR Style Gas Tanks

Racing style gas tanks for Big Twins shaped after the legendary WR model tanks of the late forties and early fifties. The beautiful narrow design and excellent European craftsmanship really stand out in the crowd. Each set is completely handmade by experts. Unlike the original WR pattern these tanks are supposed to contain gas in both halves.

To avoid an unsightly gap between engine and gas tanks our WR Style tanks are model specific and sit close to the motor which looks purpose-built instead of universal.

All gas tanks purchased from W&W Cycles are delivered unpainted and unsealed. BEFORE the paint job and final installation please observe the following:

  • Conduct a probationary installation. Make sure that the gas tank rests stress-free on the frame. See the W&W selection of spacers and shims. Don’t forget to test fit petcocks and fuel/oil lines, too.
  • Timely to painting have a professional pressure test performed. W&W Cycles cannot warrant leakage on painted gas tanks.
  • To avoid corrosion always fill your tank to the max during longer downtimes or seal it on the inside.

For obvious reasons both the probationary installation and a timley pressure test connot be executed at W&W premises. These have to be done locally.
