This was a common question back in the early days of the Scout. The only guy I heard of who had one was another Aussie who had one made by a specialist fuel tank builder. There will be pics out there somewhere. I think he sold the bike a year or so ago.

Possibly also do a search on the Australian forum Indian Motorcycle Forum | Australia & New Zealand

Second thoughts. There is another Australian Indian forum that was the 'official' one. The managers of it (Indian Australia) were inhospitable and so a lot of us left. The forum above was started by some of the leavers. The touring fuel tank guy might have been on the other one.

Like stated above. Your best bet would be to take your tank to an experienced gas tank builder and have them split your tank and weld in a spacer all the way around. That's the costly version. The cheaper version would be to carry a bottle of gas with you to get you to that extra mile until you make it to your next gas station.

I remember a thread and I might be the ones talked about above. But they used the extra space that was created when the upgrade the air intake and took out the boxy stock one. With that extra space they add a bit more room. But you’d need an after market filter

I wonder what that tank project cost start to finish. Nice job for sure.

The guy that was doing the larger Scout tank is Andrew McCullough. I think they were around $1100 USD. (exchange tank) He is on instagram, andrewmac556.
