Given that even ones from India cost £300, your only option is to scour ebay and ask around for a used one

(I'd love to be corrected on this, though, lol)

DK Off road have an old TY250 tank for sale at £140;    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1974-YAMAHA-TY-250-FUEL-PETROL-TANK-MOTOCROSS-TWINSHOCK-TRIALS-CLASS/253270709570?hash=item3af81c5542:g:t00AAOSwnTdaFEtI

Having made aluminium petrol and oil tanks from scratch before,I'd happily pay £140...

There is another way to do this, if you have basic metalworking skills and like the sound of your AC/DC TIG's HF arc. Once you get the hang of it, you can do one for yourself and then another for ...... and so on. Perhaps a bit of a long way to an affordable alloy tank, but very rewarding even before you have finished  your first one. Great therapy after a hectic day at work. :D

A simple little question there. Unfortunately, the answer is .....not so simple. Please, have a look at the link below as it shows just about the same approach as I prefer, except for the welding, where I prefer my (modern) AC/DC TIG. No very special tools or other equipment, just practice and more practice and a little patience.
