off with the AirHeads group next weekend and it will be doing the Ruptured Budgie again this year, with no suspension problems this time

Interesting tank on this bike mate. Is it a home made job? Or an obsure BMW type?

Disigned to fit behind an R series RS fairing, something bigger than 40 liters, don't know for sure.
Built from a /6 S model tank by a mate, Jim Hedderwick, in the early '80's.
It is deeper, higher and wider while just fitting inside the RS fairing.
I had to convert the bike to a round air filter to fit the tank, the flat one is far too wide.

I use this tank if I need range on a trip, it's a early '70's Guzzi model, 22.5lts,
but I'd like to get a XS650 enlarged, can anyone help out or refer to someone how might be up for the job?
