    Default Inline Oil Filter? Or a really really small Oil filter set up of sorts

    Looking for anyone who has ever run an inline oil filter on the return line to their oil tank. The bike I am building is a very traditonal 56 bobber in a striaght leg frame with mechanical brakes and wanted to get some input into what people are running for an inline oil filter or very small oil filter set up a very small oil filter housing set up that could be repurposed??? Stupid it may seem I was even thinking like a Briggs and Straton lawn mower or small garden tractor idea oil filter system?? Something that I could easily tuck away.....

    Norton Commando External Oil Filter Mounting Head

    This Mounting Block will allow you to adapt the "Spin On" Oil Filter just like Automobiles making your Oil System far better then it ever was! Arguably the best $48.95 you will ever spend on your bike! Features 2 5/16" UNF Mounting Holes! Body is made of Steel. Although this is suited for Norton Commandos, it can also be fitted to most British motorcycles from BSA, Triumph, AJS, Matchless
    and more that feature (Ideally) a "Dry Sump" & a Separate Oil Tank!
    Install on the Return Side Feed is recommended!

    That's a neat piece. Gotta sort this for a couple of my rides, oil filters are butt ugly wherever you hang them.

    TriNortchopz! YA! funny we were both typing at the same time! lol !

    IS that the actual oil filter mount you were talking about in that pic? If it is I am guessing you can mount it in many different configurations?

    yup, that's it...see the mounting installation done on Nortons in that Norvil link. Yes, mount it in any inconspicuous place you can on your chop...ain't gotta be ugly.

    There's also these type from MAP Cycle. I was considering running one on my Triumph but they were out of stock for a while so went with something else but they are highly regarded and the filters are easy to find. They also make another where the oil line fitting both face up.
