I am guessing 3.5gal splits?.. modified? or are these considered flatsides?

Those are some modified 3.5 gal panhead tanks. They where narrowed and the ears where added for mounting.

I dig em. Do they make repops of these tanks? I would rather cut on repops than originals. The aftermarket ones I normally see don't look like the fillers are so far out towards the sides.

Yes repops are available from V-Twin, J-P Cycles, and E-bay. You could also use a set of 3.5 gal shovel tanks they would be way cheaper, just the petcock would be on bottom instead of the "instant on" valve like the pan tanks have.

I hope you plan to run them as-is. That sexy angel is so early 'seventies that she's priceless.
