No. The SR was a 60 Sport tank shell, but with 2 petcocks installed. I don't remember if it had the equalizer tube or not, but I don't think so. Someone else can chime in on that.

My sr-100 tank only has one petcock outlet just like a 90 mountain. They both also have the equalizing tube fittings.
Thanks Mike

Moonpup, It looks like a 60 sport tank. Same as an SR100/175, but the SR175 had dual outlets. Mark.

This looks to be the same tank as my 50 Sport (1966), 90 Deluxe (1967) and 90 Mountain (1967)

Oh, sorry, Mike, you're right.  I just automatically thought of the SR175 as I had one of those tanks for a while, but the SR 90/100's would only have one petcock and an equalizer tube, of course.

Based on the responses so far, there doesn't appear to be anything "SR specific" to the tanks used on the single cylinder SR's.

Is that correct?

Moonpup

You are correct and SR100 is a BS60 tank, color and all
