    Gas Tank Shift Pivot Mount

    Hello!

    I am on the hunt for the shift pivot bracket for my Pan tanks. I'd buy the VTwin Kit if I could but they are backordered into eternity.

    Figure maybe one of you fellas has bought this kit and perhaps not needed the shifter pivot.

    If anybody has a VERY bad left side tank I'd buy that too. I only need the tab.

    Thanks!

    Will

    Re: Gas Tank Shift Pivot Mount

    Which tab? The inner tab or outer smaller tab?

    But there's booze in the blender
    And soon it will render

    Both. The front and back tab of the shifter pivot has been severed. They didnít smooth it out though and the old tab welds remain where the tank weld is.

    Did you contact the seller on eBay if they really have any?

    Picked up a tank for a 1960 Duo-Glide at Oley with missing shifter pivot. Included was a repro shifter pivot. Not sure of the origin of the repro but it could have been V-Twin. (How many companies in Taiwan would make it?) Anyway, I fought with it for a couple days and no way would it work, not even close. Luckily a friend had a tank that looked like it took a serious punch in the side. Way beyond repair. Was able to cut the pivot off and graft it on to the Duo-Glide tank A bit of work cutting and trimming but was worth it.

    Yeah and they had to refund my money after I bought it since they couldnít fulfill the order.

    Dave,

    I’d still struggle with the V Twin stuff. It’ll look better than a home made job at least. Some heat and pressure and it’ll work out. Can’t be worse than trying to make aftermarket primary tins fit.

    Well shit! I wonder if a Junk WLA tank would work also? The outer tab is the same but the inside one is a little different. It could expand your options for a junk tank

    Buy a smashed or rusted out tank and salvage the bracket you need.
