1930s Triumph Oil Tank L 2/1 250cc Poss mid 1930’s Val Page Triumph motorcycles


Triumph Oil Tank Models from some time in the 1930’s.

It’s for a mid 1930’s Triumph L.2/1 250cc. I happen to have a Val page L. 2/1 from 1935 and the original oil tank fitted to it is identical to this one.

Part number is F1116

Note how this tank is different to other heavier Triumphs from the same period:

  1. The curve at the rear section
  2. The oil filter is at the lower front, rather than at the side.

This is an original steel oil tank. It was probably one of the first of the tanks that were separate from the petrol tank. It has a four bolt fixing design (There are no bolts supplied with this tank). It includes the removable filter. It will need a good wash out but it’s not rusty. There are a couple of little dinks in it as shown in the pictures. It also has a small solder repair in the bottom as shown. But this is not an unsightly tank. It would look good on any bike.

So, here’s your chance to buy that 1930’s Triumph oil tank that you’ve been searching for over many years.
