LOL LOUDLY!!!GTJIM said:You have to remove just about everything behind the seats to get the tank out - after you have removed the seats.
Then get a small person dressed in a bathing suit and lightly smear them with axle grease, then squeeze them in behind the tank so they can push it out!

I removed both the flange support pieces during my restoration. I believe at least one has to be removed to have enuff room for tank removal. The bolts for the supports are accessible through the rear wheel wells. They may be hiding under all the undercoating in the wheel wells. There are 3 bolts in the right rear wheel well and two in the left. I can take pics if needed. HTH.
