DK Dan what rear rack do you have on your stunning bike?
Funny I was just saying I've pretty much given up hope of ever finding a PD tank for anything near reasonable money!
Check THIS out... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=855760 :huh
That rack is part of the Gletter subframe. Spendy...EUR 579 . Then you need a seat, exhaust, etc
Reasonable Money?????? wtf???
Reasonable INSANE money
Few tank options here as well:

Consider it an investment After seeing the PD tank prices on e-bay etc. I'm almost afraid to use mine when going offroad and risking dents :eek1
Some time ago I noticed that the german company Wunderlich had mounted a 35 liter aluminum tank to one of their very nice concept bikes. The tank looks totally identical to the G/S PD tank. Would be interesting to hear prices + details about it. Link: http://www.wunderlich-bmw.com/en/shop/16/1/1/
The PD tank looks great, but is expensive to get and any rider above a certain height is precluded - as your knee is further forward than the side step.
I just got a kevlar version of the PD tank from TAG in Italy, they still have the mould from back in the 80s and can make reruns. See below for Desert Piston's example.
The side step is pushed forward (approx 40mm) and has a more of an open angle, so should work with the legs. Its light and has internal baffles to limit petrol slosh.
Can post some photos if y'all interested
I saw the '97 price guide and they were $850 (or so) US dollars. I would imagine they've gone up a bit since then.
I am seriously considering one of these. I've never even sat on a G/S with the PD tank so I had no idea there were height issues (femur length more specifically) with that tank. I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam.... does that preclude me from the "sits comfortably with a PD tank crowd"???
Euro 750 (pre tax)
Not a steal but cooler and cheaper than an original
Also @ 6"4 can't have OEM
Does TAG still sell any of their other parts? SWINGARMS???
yes- they still do swing arms, see photo........I have my r100gs frame with them now
they have been a BMW and Triumph dealer for the last few years and my impression was that they were now keen on getting back into mods
That's quite tasty... how much $$ ?
EUR 730 for extended (+100mm) mono
Does that include extending your driveshaft for you?
yes driveshaft included
Cool. You owe us photos when you get all your pieces back. Deal? I'm curious to see what they do to your frame. I've always really liked the look of the work they do, but have been very surprised at how little information about TAG is available on the internet. I tried to contact them a few years ago as I was curious to see if they were still in business, but didn't have any success.
This thing is just HOT:
I'd be curious to see better photos of what looks like their own paralever design.
Does that include or exclude VAT? And, can you provide contact information fro these guys?
