    1987 K75T & 1987 K75S Fuel Tank Questions

    I am rebuilding my K75T after an accident a couple months ago and need work to the fuel tank. It has a nasty scrape and ding on the right side. So questions go like this:
    1. Can anyone recommend someone who fixes and paints tanks?
    2. I found a 1987 K75S tank on eBay and its in great condition, just needs to be painted black, is it the same size as my 75T?

    thanks in advance.

    I think that the K75S tank is missing the two prongs on the front of the tank that stick forward to hold the top of the radiator shroud on the K75T. I'm not positive though so you might ask the seller.

    "S" tanks have the prongs. Always wondered what they were for until I took apart a K75C.

    Then since they are the same year it (S) should fit the (T).
