Larger-than-stock-tanks (4 strike-outs....)

Been trying to get a larger capacity tank.
justgastanks.com, Clarke, IMS, and Acerbis do not make tanks for T-Dubs despite the little Yamaha being in production nearly 1/4 of a century.

I have a couple more inquiries out that I haven't heard back from yet, but it looks like I'll have to take a 3.3 gallon Mustang style chopper tank from Steel THunder Custom Cycles and try to make it work for me if I want a larger tank bad enough...
I'me already going to try a leather Velocipede solo saddle with coil springs under each rear corner from them...(Alot like the old Bates solo saddles like I had on my 1937 ULH 35 years ago.)
I'me going to "lose" all the blue plastic that I can, too.
With the new fenders already on the bike, this shoudl make it look "retro", and for sure be more waht bikes used to look like before I got old and cranky.
