Aluminum Horseshoe Oil Tank From Hank Young

Hank Young was a well known hot rodder at the time he appeared on the motorcycle scene with a famous bike called the "Flying Pan" that all custom builders remember well.  His strong hot rod influence can be seen not only in his bikes but also in all his new motorcycle parts.  Here a perfect example.  A horseshoe oil tank that I like very much although I usually don’t like oil bags with such a shape. But this one is unusually constructed and the material used makes all the difference. It’s made out of aluminum and the cool oil cap on the right side deserves to be shown because it’s cool looking and machined from a big chunk of 6061 billet aluminum.  In addition, because of its fat ribs, this oil tank will slightly lower engine oil temperature. You can see this oil tank and other hot rod inspired motorcycle parts (air cleaners, taillights, wires) by visiting Hank Young website at .

    Leave it to Hank Young to come up with a kick ass oil tank like that one. That’s why Hank is one of the best in the business.

    As always Hank and company are ORIGINATORS. Great work sure we’ll use it on the next new OSC build.

    I too am a fan of Hanks work. I think it would be very nice to have this piece as an air dam. Would keep the oil cooler too.
