Pair of LUFTMEISTER AUXILIARY FUEL TANKS (1g.+ ea) for most AirHeads /5, /6, /7

Up for grabs is a set of saddle-type auxiliary fuel tanks for early airhead BMW’s.This is a period-correct accessory for your /5, /6, /7. They are mounted in place of your side-covers. Since they are a beautiful aluminum, somewhere along the line the original powder-coating has been painstakingly removed fronts and edges and they are still in somewhat polished condition. They could buff out and look even shinier. Cosmetically, you'll only find a tiny nick here and there. They're in really good condition for their age. Both tanks still have the “explosafe” aluminum mesh in the tanks. Fuel valves, though not matching, are intact and operational. I believe one of them was replaced at one time. Since they are threaded in, you could easily purchase a matching pair, if you think you can see the bike from both sides at the same time. Fuel caps are also threaded and in great shape. I removed them from a /6 and they're easy to install. The only thing you'd want to acquire is some pieces of rubber to put between the tank backs/mounts and the frame. Total capacity is 2 Gallons. There are numerous ways to connect the fuel lines to the main tank, see Snowbums page on auxiliary tanks here: http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/luftmstrtanks.htm
