1916 Calthorpe Vintage Veteran lightweight motorcycle fuel gas petrol tank.
This original tank really needs a new base soldering in. It has had work in the past but really could do with an entire new base. It’s too good to just have as a pattern. It even comes with some of the mount fixings as shown.
I believe the tank was used with the Calthorpe-Jap 2 3/4hp from around 1916. However, the 1922 272cc lightweight motorcycle has a similar tank. Maybe they continued to use the tank for many years.
On the base, the maker has left their brass label. It reads: E.C Edwards, 88 Edward St, Parade, Birmingham. Serial number 13 and Type LC2 (or LC3). I can’t decide if it’s a 2 or a 3.
The dimensions are shown in the images. It was easier than writing all of it out. If you need different dimensions, please let me know.
If you have any doubts about buying it for your motorcycle, please ask for dimensions.
