    you can get dummy tanks that act as a toolbox that just bolt on

    but you can get the real ones too - but you'll probs need to drill the frame a bit and then figure out the plumbin on it

    It largely depends on the tank you get. If you get a big enough one you can bolt or weld the tail to the front part of the seat bracket (usually tho you need to cut this a little) and then make your own bracket on the steering column for the front (again needs welding)

    Or if you get a peanut tank then the best way to do it is get a scaffold bar welded between the seat and steering column to carry the tank.

    Once the tank is fitted is it hard to hook it up to use once the old tank has been removed?

    shouldn't be as im guessing the pipe at the bottom of the tank may have a tap on it, then you just run the hose from the tank to your carb, most people just drill a hole through the frame

    could you not enlarge the now redundant petrol tap hole in the frame instead of adding another one?
