I found this on e-bay. Don't know how to get the pictures on FHP website.
This is an oil tank for a BT, 6v, but I've never seen one like it before. Could it be a Police bike ??
I've looked in all of my books, can't find any thing that looks like it. Found a BT Flat Head that looks close,
but it's not the same.

Yup, That is the tank for the police Big Battery unit. Started in the early '50's like this one and later on had a built in oil filter.
