    1940 Harley WLDR Gas Tanks

    What year of tanks would a 1940 WLDR left the factory with. The 37-39 WL style tanks with the petcock bung on the bottom like the WR's or the new 1940-46 WL style tanks with the shut off rod. Thanks in advance.

    Wondering why they would not be the 1940 style since that is what the year you are asking about??

    The WR did not yet exist, nor did the narrow tanks. they used standard WL tanks or Special "Daytona" tanks.





    However, the '40 "competition parts list" shows narrow tanks as an option from '39.
