Hi all.New to forum,names Paul been riding 40 years and just bought my first Harley (never thought i would get this old ) still got my ducati 999s 2006 + mamola boxer cup rep 2004 + honda c90 1976 reserved for special occasions. For my birthday treat i bought a 2001 sportster S with various mods.Would like to change colour to black gloss.Was going to strip all parts and take to powder coat guy but have seen on ebay a black gloss tank of a 2005 sportster 883XL . If this is a straight or easy fit it will solve the decal problem. Any help much appreciated Thanks Paul

Welcome to Harley Shop Talk... (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

The tank off of the 05 might require some modifications to fit your 01 frame.... In 04 they started putting 4 gallon tanks on the Sportsters your 01 has a 3.3 gallon tank. I am not sure if the mounting points are different though but if they it probably wouldn't be to difficult to retro fit it...

Good Luck and post some pics of you project....
