I used "Header Paint" on the jugs.

The "wierd" looking tank mount is a "Heinrich" tank mount. It has a "stud" that passes up into the tool box where it bolts into place.
This thing gulps gas so needs the extra tank capacity. This is a relatively small Heinrich tank. Maybe a little over 8 gallons.

The R100S engine is a 1978 so it used the old filter cover. The extra long crankcase vent hose for that year engine was hard to find.
No one seems to carry new ones, finally found a repalcement one on EBay.

Heinrich in place:
