Tank Change

Hey guys. Off season for me is coming up soon and this is my first Kawasaki. I was looking into doing some custom paint but this is a garage kept 1985 Vulcan 700 with mint original paint. So to preserve the original I'm getting fenders off EBay (love that place) and looking for a tank. Have a few options including a salvage yard nearby that specializes in bikes. Any ideas which tanks with work with my bike without too much work? I'm a certified welder so fabricating the mounts is no problem. Just don't want to get too in depth with the sensor and petcock.

From what I can tell, you might be able to make something from a 900 Vulcan fit. Problem is the design...two tubes running under the tank instead of one (which is typical of modern motorcycles).

Still investigating my options to put on a bigger tank, but so far none of the tanks I have are wide enough underneath.

It seems that unless you're up for some serious cutting/welding to modify a tank, you're situation has something to do with a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel...
