Ditto.

What *is* the oil tank on that bike? My '64 (also an XLH) came with one exactly like it, and I've never known...

Thanks guys. It's hard to be the last one left in your family.

Oil tank I suspect is a GME. They made a bunch of stiff years ago. Had one of theirs on a 74 H I owned.

The Mag alone is probably worth half the asking price...
