Here's some pics of my '86 883 I bought new from Dudley Perkins H-D in San Francisco. First pic is in the Marin headlands north of the Golden Gate bridge, the bike is less than a week old. Dudley's must've ordered the paint special as I've never seen another one like it.

Ya know, those are Hummer/Sportster tanks. A very iconic and distinctive shape.

The peanut tank is not so triangular, more rounded like an actual peanut. Wish I was on my home computer cuz I have a couple pics of a genuine "peanut" tank.

I know lotsa folks call 'em peanut tanks but that's like calling a Lamborghini a Ferrari cuz they kinda look similar...

Yea I've seen them, but that like making people call a tomato a fruit, when most call it a vegetable. It's no big deal, unless the OP was asking for that rarity for which the sportster tank got its name.

One of my favorite Evo factory paint schemes, but I put it on my Ironhead...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
