Default Wanted: Behind seat gas tank

I am wanting a behind the seat gas tank similar to image 1.

The dimensions I am looking at are 4.5" diameter and 10" length. Which should hold roughly 0.688 gal of gas which is 2.60L (im in Canada so I use liters). That is slightly larger than kit tank volume. I am wanting something with roughly the same volume as a kit tank but rear behind the seat. Cylinder look is nice. I dont care what the materials are as long as it is reasonably priced and will hold up.

The bike it would go on is pic 2. Other pics are back of the seat on the desired bike. (the rack can move in or out)

If anyone one could build and/or sell me something that will work I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks.

I still want to use the top of my rack. that is why a small cylinder on the back would work best. it takes up a small amount of space but leaves it mostly free. If it is the under the rack one, i dont believe there is enough room and I cannot manufacture a sturdy mount to raise it. If i could, i'd probably have enough skill to make a tank myself. I appreciate it corgi1, but i have looked. Would save me time, effort and money tho. you are talking about the dax one right?

I can make you one like this. It holds 46 Fl Oz, which is 1.36L or 1 qt. 14 Fl Oz. It measures 7 1/4" x 4 1/4" with the harness leather. Stainless steel straps hold it on to the rear rack. PM me if you're interested. I only have it in black, but eventually will have it in brown as well.

This is what the larger tank looks like. I think the 46 0z tank looks better. PM me for a current price. I still have some harness leather from when I made horse tack for Indian ponies I raised years back. Now my ponies have wheels. Ha! When I have to buy more leather the price will go up I'm afraid. It will take about a week before I can send a tank out as I have sinew and saddle needles on order which should be here in a few days.

I've been asked a couple questions in a PM which I"ll answer here where I can post photos. The brass gas cap is not vented. I got tired of the kit tanks leaking at the caps and it is one reason I am making these. They don't leak. However you have to have a vent of some kind or the gas will not flow to the carb. I have a vent line running out the top of the tank which terminates under the seat. The stainless clamps are just large sized hose clamps. The small line you see running from a little fitting at the top and also at the bottom is an experimental sight gauge. Seems to work OK. You can order a tank with or without it.
