ANY 450 DOHC tank can be fitted... A 500/4 or 550/4 tank can be adapted on easily, and looks good..... I've run a CB175 tank, a 350 tank as well......
Here's a 550 tank on a 450 frame......


Here's a CB175 tank....

Item to watch.... distance from front mounts to petcock...... Can't have it "hit" the camshaft journals or carbs..... If you are willing to weld/braze in a different bung, this point becomes moot.... Steve

I have found a good condition bomber tank for sale. What do you guys think this would be worth? Thanks.

Quite a bit if complete with side chrome tins, rubber knee pads, petcock, and emblems....
Money is relative.....Is it within the budget?.....Is what's being asked less than you'd be willing to pay?
Personally, I'd LOVE to find a complete K1 tank in nice shape and cheap....... Steve

Tank is complete with pads, emblems, good chrome and petcock, no cap. Paint is not so flash but that is the easy bit.

$400 nzd, about $220usd. I want it. No, I need it. I deserve it.

Doesn't sound too bad, and perhaps is even inexpensive if all it needs is paint and a cap..... So BUY IT ALREADY!..... You DO deserve it!....:D Steve

I got the tank. No dents, one panel is now at the chrome platers. I PORed it over the weekend and prepared for repainting. It changes the whole look of the bike. A very nice object.
