Heinrich tank

Post by olebmw »

At one time someone was making a Heinrich tank that would fit a conversion with sidecar.
Is anyone still making them?

A standard (8 Gal?) Heinrich tank fit my conversion/sidecar. Even had room under the tank for a /6 brake master cylinder. My coils went in the /2 battery case and the battery in the sidecar.

More than a few years ago, I tried to fit an original Heinrich and it wouldn't fit
and I don't recall where the interference was at. I am using one dual lead coil
so don't think that was the problem. Time to check again I guess .
Thanks

I never knew some Heinrich tanks had a cutout out for the sidecar mount. I will take a closer look when I get back to Washington next week.

I'm still in CA. Assisting a family member with chemo. Maybe I won't be heading back to WA until after Thanksgiving.
