Wow!  What a stash of parts.  I can't help but get envious most of the time I come browse around this forum.   

Looks like another track is going to be saved, so that's great!

You probably want to stay away from NOS tanks, any you find will be 70+ years old some were self sealing rubber and some were coated steel.  But again with 70+ year old rubber. That rubber will not stand up to today‚Äôs gas. You might get away with it if you stay with clear gas but you could limit your self. I have a couple of NOS tanks but after looking inside them and saw how they were deteriorating decided new tanks were a much better option.

Great looking track and welcome to the board. Do you know if your frame serial number is recorded on the survivors list/database?

I would only buy the NOS tanks if there where the steel ones with the outer rubber.If i can't find them i was looking at the repos and some how have the outer rubber put on,not sure how to
go about doing that but that is what i was thinking.

Where is the serial # located on the Track? When i bought it came with 3 Data plates and I'm not sure which one is correct.

Thanks for your guys reply.....Harley

The frame serial number is located on the driver's side behind the shock. You may need to clean the frame to see it.
