The IMS 6.6 is the gold standard in aftermarket tanks for the Gen 1. No nerf bars required, but the JNS radiator guard is recommended. It's recommended no matter what you do, even with a decent set of bars.

It comes in translucent and black. This is the black one. @DPelletier has a translucent one.

That might be something like an ~'80 Z1R tank.

The early '80's GPZ's used that basic shape of tank also. The Z1R tank is probably Rarer than hens teeth, probably larger than necessary also.
