These tanks came in a crate with my bike. Looks like they take the cats eye dash. Would that make them between 1940-47 ? They are for a hand shift judging by the shifter gate mounting lugs. They've definitely seen better days.

Those appear to be '37-'39 UL tanks. Top of tank shutoff started in '40.
