    After I bought a crappy used one for too much money, I found out that you can go to an auto parts store and use a car gas cap of the right size. You can do that if you need one right away or don't care about looks.

    I went to my local VW parts shop and bought a Type III cap, $15. Painted it black, on black tank, one can hardly tell from a distance. :D

    Vented? Gee, I don't know, I hope so, if not, get out the ol' drill set ;-)
    I'm still restoring the bike, so I have not used the VW cap in real world conditions yet.
