Venturer Tank

I'm searching for the tank that fits the Venturer. I'm putting a Venturer back together and discovered that the tank on it is off a Standard. Went back through 2 years of "wanted to buy" posts and didn't see anybody else ask so why not, never know what somebody might have kicking around!

Here's a standard tank for cheap.

Parts aren't going to be getting cheaper. Soon enough, Andreas will be dealing in precious metals.

That Venturer tank is located about 30 miles from me here in NY...I sent the seller a message, I gotta see this one in person! I did find a tank on Ebay...in the Netherlands! It's in good shape, paid $280 for it including $70 to have it shipped over here. Like Marty said, parts aren't getting any cheaper. And I can sell the nice standard tank that came on the bike to help defray the cost.
