Looking for a gas tank

I am converting this '79 KZ650 to a "cafe racer". I really like the looks of this 750 I found. I am looking for someone to point me to a good tank guy and also what the name or make of the tank on the 750 in the photo is.

I could be wrong, but in the Picture it looks like he might have a 77 KZ1000 B-1 Tank on the frame. The B1's (LTD) Models at a 3.0 Gal tank and the A1 (Non LTD) Models had the 4.0 Gal tank.

I'm not sure where to find CAFE tanks outside the one Airtech makes for the KZ900/1000
http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/kawiz/Z11973-80.htm

Check these places
http://www.oldbikebarn.com/
http://www.z1enterprises.com

OR check the KZ Rider forums, There's TONS of information over there.

Bam! Looks like it is the KZ1000 gas tank. Gonna dig a little deeper. Anyone know if this will fit a 650? Now I need to know what seat and handlebars those are...
