Harley racing tanks

Postby Simon » Wed Oct 25, 2017 10:33 pm

Hi everyone, posting here on behalf of Leo Hulnick, who uploaded this great selection of Harley competition gas tanks to the K model page on Facebook. I messaged with him, and he is happy to have them posted here also. Some of these are super-rare, and I'd not seen them before. What a lineup!

"Something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue. Not all but representative pictures of the evolution of the Harley TT roadracers. 37-39WLDRTT 5 gal GAS/OIL, 52-53KRTT 4 gal., 54-59KRTT 5gal., 60 KRTT 8gal., 61-65 6 gal., 66 frt cap, 67 rear cap, 68-68KRTT 6gal. 74XRTT 4 gal. short course. Feel free to correct any errors."

My best guess: left to right 1983 XR1000 4 gal, 1972 XR750 6 gal, 1967 KRTT 6 gal, 1966 KRTT 6 gal 1962 KRTT 6 gal, 1963 KRTT 8 gal, 58 or 59 KRTT 5 1/2 gal, 1952 KR 4 1/2 gal. So far we have identified 17 gas tanks appropriate to the various years KRs. Using 1954, 1956, 1957, 1959, 1965, 1966 and 1968 parts books and the 1968 price list. Looking for the 1969 supplement. Does anyone have any different KR parts books or supplements?
