Steam punk gas cap .

Hey guys . I saw this gas cap the other day on a custom website and thought how cool It looked a little steam punkish maybe ( they do a bunch of other designs also ) The thread size Is 1.75 wide outside diameter and the threads are 4 course threads per inch, anybody know If this would fit our tanks ? Iv tried searching for triumph gas tank thread size but had no luck . I reached out to the store that sells these but all they did was send me the thread size .

You might want to contact this guy on Ebay. It appears that he makes these. The one I linked comes with an adapter for the Triumph tanks. Let us know what you find out!

Probably more to suited to a 'Flat Tank' era bike than a bobber but it sure looks cool. My big concern would be what happens in a crash, do you really want something that sharp so close to your crown jewels!!!

I think when you pop it open, the Flux Capacitor is in there...j/k. I think it's pretty original looking. Can't say I have seen one like it before.
