I'm no expert but I believe your "tank things" are for a big twin of the same vintage (55&56). I've never seen a 165 with metal tank badges. I believe the 165s came with the red and gold water slide decal of the same design. The only thing I can think that would make the metal ones correct would be if they had been an option. Maybe Mutt, Dave or one of the other real experts will chime in.

Try this link to the pictures. If this doesn't work I give up for today.....

I hope I posted this right. I know a lot of pictures are needed for you experts :) to give me an idea of what my bike might be worth. I think these show the good, the bad, the ugly and the GREAT!
I apologize if I put the pics up wrong. Oh and I bought the tank things separately at a flea market but I think they are the correct ones?? Yes? I also have the original owners manual.
Thanks for any help. I guess I'm really ready to sell it
:( to the right person for the right price. It was totally rewired 25? years ago and it was running way back when.
