Auxiliary 4 gallon Fuel Cell who can make?

Hi all,
Do any of the ADVRider venders make a rectangular auxiliary fuel cell?
Ride Safe,
Robert

If you can't find anyone, there are lots of commercially available options, too. With a little creativity, these two could fill the bill...

Not rectangular, but made for motorcycles:

Thanks,
I have looked at both manufactures and if possible I would like to lower the center of gravity more than these cells offer. Also I talked to the Summitt tech support yesterday and to my surprise the AN fittings they use in their cells are Army/Navy and are airplane type designations and basically have nothing in common with anything else but the aircraft industry! And to get down from a -8AN fitting size to something pump manufactures use ie 1/8NPT requires whatevers!
I believe the more valves, etc. you have the more points of failure there are. Perfect setup would be directly from a vented baffled (no foam) fuel cell to the fuel pump to the bike tank. Only a check valve, fuel filter, pump, on/off lever, a quick disconnect, and two or three lengths of fuel lines with proper connectors, ie no reducers mechanisms etc.

My description to another inmate:
It appears that the fuel cells range between $125-$150 with some type of baffle included. Although, I don't really want foam in the cell. Basically what I need is a fuel cell 6"D, 10"W and 24"L outside dimensions, made from .10 thick appropriate metal, that has an offset (to the high side of the bike) filler spout with vented cap, and two outflow points (bungs I believe they're called) at either end of the 24" dimension, for attachment to the rack I think some type of quality bolts attached/welded to the cell bottom to secure it to the flat tail rack plate, and two tabs on the side to secure the Facet fuel cell and fuel filter. If I have to use tabs to secure the cell to the flat plate then the L dimension would have to be 20" versus 24". Does that sound correct to you?
I intend to use a Facet low pressure pump with 1/8NPT female threads. So, should the cell outflow points be the same? I was told that 5/16 fuel lines would be the norm?
What I would like from you can is the fuel cell, appropriate fuel lines, appropriate check valves, an on/off mechanism, and whatever else you think I would need?
What are your suggestions and recommendations? I also need a 'fitting' to tie the fuel line into my tank at a location TBD by my dealer. I want to pump into the bike tank and not into the bike fuel system.
