Lloyd, I cannot help you with a tank, although I have owned a '51 ZB33 since the mid eighties and will do so until I die. However what I would strongly recommend is you add two studs to the underside front of any tank and fit a cross brace plate like they do on the swingarm mid fifties centre mounted fuel tanks.
When full the tank sides can and do flex and will sooner or later result in a split tank. An underside front brace helps manage this and acts a bit like a tank bra. 
They are a great machine! sadly they are so reliable no one bothers having a forum for them. I have found that the XC11 and XB33 tanks are interchangeable, so perhaps a ZC11 tank might be an option.
Good luck

Hi Lloyd, do you really have 2 Ls? Try Mike Rielly, he had a couple and I converted one for my Superflash, we discussed this in depth at his place, and he was impressed as to my plan mate. Tho other one was still there 2 Yrs ago, so you will have to make a phone call I guess on this one.
Set your clock to 10:30. - 11:00 (QLD time) tomorrow don’t call earlier please, if someone beats you by the bell I shall give him the heads up mate.
PS It needs work
Best of luck LLoyd
