A 72 tank will fit in a 69. It will have extra emissions fitting. The 69 tank tank the fuel line hooked up on the side towards the middle. Not 100% sure it was still the same in 72 or if one of the other fittings was used. SOR shows a early fuel line up to 7/70. Then a 71 model line and a 72/73 line.

Yep, that be the one. Unfortunately I just ordered one from cruiserparts.net. I'm so sorry if I have wasted your time. But perhaps not, as cruiserparts order submission form always feels a bit iffy. I think the order went through, got an order # but no shipping info :? Anyways, if that doesn't work, I will take you up on it. Course, I can't be the only one needing a tank for this model year. And as CCOT wants $420 before shipping for a new one, used seems like a good route to take. If not me, someone else will probably need it. At any rate, thank you. Sorry, just had to rush this because I need to drive it very soon.
