1949 WR

Thanks Masa san


  1. The oil bag is in what you would assume is the gas tank.
    One half is gas with an inner bulge passing thru the frame & into the space of the of the other 1/2 of the tank.
    The other shell has less capacity even though it appears equal from the exterior.
    A piece of trivia, that cool little dimple/inner tank is a tear drop shape 12" long & 4" tall. It was used as the cover for the dual card set up on Joe Petrali's/Daytona land speed recorder holder.

  2. anyone know?... the back horizontal tube generally fitted in between rear upper and lowers on the WR frame... why did some not have it
