If there were no holes originally in his frame. My guess would be that it was tankless. But there are a lot smarter Cabers than I to better answer that question.

Nope. No holes. That would make mine a standard twinbar. Which goes along with the holes in the front fender for a light.

Oh well. Makes restoring it that much easier, since I don't have to find a tank.

The crusty one posted is monark built. And one of those black ones is Snyder built.

Of the few of these 39 Zeppelin full dress bikes known...and they are classified rare by Phill Marshall... most are Snyder built (like mine) but who cares?
What matters is if you have the tank #1 and #2 is it original?

I have a 39 as well, not sure who made mine snyder or cwc. But this is as far as mine has gotten so far, but still searching for parts, looking for fenders in rusty red (if possible) and a tank, I know that's like asking for the grail.

Nick.

I'm pretty sure this one is a CWC and the blue one is Snyder. If I'm wrong something correct me.

I think this is synder as well
I wasn't sure myself, but turns out it is indeed CWC. This is a different style frame than what is being discussed here tho. The OP's bike is a "Zep", manufactured by both Snyder & CWC. The others, including this one that popped up at ML, are Hawthorne Twin Bars.
