Factory racer inspired gas tanks
Brunswick, Ohio based Lowbrow Customs is offering these new bolt-on ‘WX’ bobber gas tanks for Harley-Davidson and custom applications. Inspired by factory race bikes of the 1940's, this cut-down, classic style can be appropriated for Knucklehead, Panhead and Shovelhead motorcycles.
Directly influenced by the Harley-Davidson WR, an innovative design that allows them to fit almost a half century's worth of motorcycles. In 1946 Harley-Davidson introduced the WR factory racer, a 45 cubic inch Flathead designed to dominate the flat tracks and road courses in America. The narrowed tanks were part of the slim profile and 'all-business' form that follows function when it comes to a fast and nimble motorcycle.
The beauty and simplicity of Lowbrow Customs' ‘WX’ gas tanks is that with the included, innovative rear mount they will bolt right up to a stock Harley-Davidson Big Twin frame from 1936 - 1984. “Get a custom, narrowed look with a tight gap between the tanks and no fabrication required. These are the perfect tanks for a custom Shovelhead or Panhead chopper, bobber or custom motorcycle.”
They have 2.25 gallon capacity and feature both a vent and fuel crossover, accept a 22mm fuel petcock and standard cam-style Harley-Davidson gas caps. The Panhead pictured has been built by The Gasbox of Cleveland, Ohio (www.thegasbox.com).
