early '56 Dominator cosmetics

Posted by jim_friedlander at July 04. 2017

Hello, Does anyone have some good photos of the chrome tank that was used on these. I am in the process of redoing my '56. I bought one of the Indian tanks which came with stick on painted side panels and screw on knee pads and no center panel, a bit disappointing. It is also obviously hammered and not formed. I'm trying to decide if I should keep it. I also believe this bike should have the peashooter silencers as it is in the early run. Comments please. Jim
