I bought a used metal roadster gas tank online, when I got it it does not have the knee indention, look like a interstate but not as large. It fit the bike and looks great but did they make a roadster tank without the indention?

Thank Gary

Can you post some pictures? Is it maybe a hi-rider tank?

If it doesn't have the indents I, too, would guess its a Hi Rider/SS tank. Is it around 2 1/2 gallon capacity?

Does it look like this?

I looked at the hi rider it has a flat bottom, this one is rounded like the roadster. I will try to figure out how to post some pics.

Could it be a 'LR' (Long Range) tank - 4 gal capacity I think, as fitted to the Fastback from (I think 69) to 72, basically similar to the early Interpol tank but without the radio well. Based on the top half of the featherbed Dominator/Mercury tank with a Commando bottom to clear the spine of the frame.

What model is that? Is it a standard model? The front mudguard is motocross style.
Its a real stunner.
