    Another What is this question-SMALL TANK with 2 braided lines coming out of tank

    This was found in a box of parts I got with a recent Hawk purchase.

    I suspect it is custom made. Maybe for racing, maybe not even for a Hawk. Braided lines and catch can seem to give it some quality status. I did find a large band with rubber protected sides that goes around the tank and has a bolt hole for monting. It is not in the picture

    It will be of no use to me and someone here might want it or have a need for it (Just pay the shipping it costs me).

    I'm going to say crankcase breather catch can for racing. Nah that doesn't look right with high pressure lines. Dry sump ?

      I agree the high pressure lines would not be needed for any crankcase breather and to use this for that would be adding weight not reducing it.

      The short black hose could have been for filling it. If it was a sump it would have to have in and out and a way to fill it.

      Harley and Triumph I think used dry sump systems. The small amount of oil that that can would hold would most likely be for a drag bike setup maybe.

      I had 2 1986 Yamaha SRX600's and they were dry sump. One even had the oil cool that hooked up to the front of the engine where it came stock with plugs. The sump on the SRX was cast aluminum right behind the cylinder under the seat and it had fins for cooling.

        Looks like an (after market )oil tank for a Harley. Looks similar to the one we used on that 69 Sportster (tough there where no origional parts left) I built with jack. Mounted under the seat, fill hose came out from under, lines down into the crank case.

          Though iirc his had barb's not screw in fittings. But again, that whole bike was changed. He rebuilt it in a different form every couple years since the 70's. The only Harley guy I ever knew that I had level 10 respect for as a bike guy.

          A true fucking mad man.

                If you can find the Harley it came off, throw that in the trash too

                  Very Funny . but I owned 5 Harley's in my lifetime. Wish I still had my 1941 Knuckhead or the 1950 Pan head with the sidecar (all factory stock). That was my high school cycle days. They were cool bikes then and would be now too.

                        Heh I like to give Harley owners a lot of shit but the truth is there are many Harleys I would own and ride. I just wouldn't fall for that "lifestyle" nonsense.

                          Have no issues with Harley for vintage purposes. No issues with old school gear heads like Jack who know them in and out and love them like we love the hawk. And i think its cute that my mom rides one... That's the best i can say about them. Have a massive issue with anyone that is going to try and tell me the new ones are "good" bikes, or american. They are not, and have not been for tens of years. Not if you are going by any metric that i can respect.

                            Just thinking outside the box maybe someone had it in place of the oil line that runs between the bottom end and the head on the 90 and older bikes? Like some type of Aux oil reservoir? I don't think it would actually work well without putting too much oil on the bottom end but who knows? I guess if it was for the bike he has there would be some AN/Flare sty fittings for the opend ends of the hose. If not then probably parts from another bike mixed in like others are saying...
