hi everyone , could anyone tell me what year my elgin is ? i would like to find a tank for it , but havent found a discription or pic that makes me confident enough to purchase one . with or without it will be a great bike to have and enjoy ! here are a couple pics from when it found me View attachment 721426 View attachment 721427
The thing to watch out for is there are two similar long tanks for this bike. One fits a curved seat tube and one is for a straight tube. Your safest bet is to find a short tank. Here's one that would look great on the bike Rob posted. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/nos-1939-elgin-tank.102779/#post-670035

Tank differences. The black and red tanks would fit your bike with the straight seat mast. Note the elongated hole for the seat mast is a little farther back. The blue and the crusty black tanks would fit a similar style bike but with a curved or "swept" seat mast. Note the holes for the seat mast are more round. These tanks do not interchange without modifying them. I would recommend getting the correct tank. Please see the pics of the two project bikes as a reference.
