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:

Oh man, serious moto lust. I dream of finding a heinrich tank in a barn somewhere. I wake up sweating. I the drem thing on the rear fender a toolkit?

I have a newer model drum filter style airbox with the dual vent hoses, inc the hoses. Both the airbox and the top cover. I was going to polish them out. Need glass beading at minimum. I'm going to stay with my flat airbox. (have another one of those) too inc. top cover.). interested? (I'm trying to raise money for new brake lines. I'm poor).

An Item I got on ebay (and one of the last, I dislike the place) was a set of repro. Red turn signal lenses. Not the finest molding but look OK if you don't get right down real close. I used to have some OEM ones. Really look nice on the rear.
