Wanted Tank for Prewar Ladies Elgin, open to whatever - rust/patina preferred.. send me a pm with pictures if you have something you’re willing part with.

I learned this frame had 2 variations, one the horizontal cross bar like mine, and one with a slanted cross bar which had a different tank style. Notice last 2 pics, I need the one like in the last pic from @mynameislegion ‘s bike.

Thank you,

Josh

Honestly she looks great as is to me. A tank would just take away from those great painted details. Finding a tank that matches perfectly and doesn't stand out would be just about impossible. To each his own I suppose. Good luck.

The tank you seek is this Murray tank.

Thanks for the much valued opinion @fordmike65, I was thinking the exact same thing about hiding those details...

I just wanted to try and balance out all that “junk in the trunk” with a little sheet metal in front — Just seemed a little bottom heavy if you know what I mean!!!
