As the OP, I'll own up to it friday. A few weeks back I took a chance and purchased a set from an American based seller on eBay. Don't expect to have them fit the frame and off to the painter. The left side fit well, The right side has a tab that's a little bit skewed and the NPT holes were tapped too deep. Other than that, the shape is very true to original tanks. I will have less work into them than a panhead VT set of Taiwan tanks I purchase a few years back.
