Made to measure fuel tank.

I've got 2 x 22 ltr portable fuel tanks under my jockey seat and it's a p.i.t.a to keep stopping and filling them up with jerry cans when out cruising so.... I was looking at 70 litre fuel tanks on the interweb which would give me a generous (approx) 100 mile + range.

The ones I was looking at are ... 80 x 35 x 30 -70 ltr and most of them are all the same hight & width but are longer for holding more litres.

The problem I have is the width at the top of the jockey console is only 29 cm but widens out further down so if I could get one at 29 cm either hight or width it would be no problem but that's not the case.

Can you get custom made plastic and if so who makes them or do I have to go aluminium or s/s. or as a last resort have my jockey console cut out and re glassed.

Any help and ideas much appreciated :thumbup:
