the early models had the under petrol tank style oil tank  the later models had the side mount apart from different side covers and possibly the battery box there is no side oil tank mount on the frame of the early model  on mine any way hope this helps some.cheers

Here is a visual of what you don't have on your early model 175.  This is the bracket that the side oil tank attaches to.

thanks for all the help. i actually got the tank and bracket but there were still some clearance issues. either way the tank was leaking on the backside i found out later after putting it on and coming back into the garage to find a puddle of very expensive 2 stroke oil on the floor and all over the frame of the bike. >:(
