Nice Fuel Cell. Identify???

Found this on an '87 Honda xl250. Owner said it's been on the bike since he has had it, late '80's.

It had a bracket underneath that fit around the crossbar on the handlebar that help snug it into place.

Good call.

I found out the maker was Tumble Weed Enterprises, with the Maier name on it also.

I'm not sure of the history of Maier, more investigation needed.

I was checkin' out this bottle again today and the owner is not parting with it. I don't blame him.

i used to use them a lot but the only thing bad was the caps would crack after a few seasons and leak. i bought replacement caps though since the bottles were very durable.

+2 on the caps being fragile when exposed to fuel. I used one for years with water before Camelbaks were developed with no issues. However once I started using it as a fuel reservoir the cap cracked.



Here resorting to a plastic bag under the cracked cap to hopefully minimize the leakage.

Roundstock found a brand new one in a second hand store a week ago.
We used to have these on our bikes years ago for extra water. Back when bikes had cross bars :)
