XR's used the same tank for multiple years - that looks like an early 80's ('82-'84) XR500R or XR350R. There was a bit of orange to the red in the early XR tanks.

XR500R


XR350R

note my previous post about the same tank being used for many years....it's the orange-ish tint in the color that was common to earlier XR's.

that tank he showed is likely to fit on many many different XR's.
