I have an 83 Ironhead that would leak like a pig every time I would ride it. I looked everywhere on that bike and could never find out where it was leaking from. Then I believe I read on one of the threads in this forum about the oil tank having cracks on the brackets for the battery holder welded onto the oil tank. Sure enough I found two large cracks right on the welds. I repaired the welds on the oil tank and then I welded the battery holder to the frame itself. My bike is pretty much oil leak free now, maybe one drop per month. Hope this helps
