Does anybody know if you could get 63 OEM tanks without the early style gas shut-off rod system?

Thanks....Panhead Mark.

Uh, that would be NO! The valve did not change until '66.

unless you special ordered them from Dudley Perkins in San Fransisco, then you could get 1966 parts on a 1961 or 1963 bike. OK, spank me, I'm being a smart ass.

Robbie is right, all the big twin tanks had the instant reserve fuel shut off, up to, and including, 1965.

Especially the '65 ad!

The Peoria Dealership used a graphic of just the fellow and the machine for their 'yellow pages' ad for many, many, years.
Now I wish'd I kept one.
