Is there a suitable replacement gas cap for a 1981 CX500 Deluxe tank? I'm having no luck finding one so far.
Thanks.

I may have an extra. I'll look and see.

Did you get it yet and does it fit? I have a roached deluxe tank and the cap from that would not fit on the standard tank I got as a replacement.

Scott, I notice that you have an '81 Deluxe and the link lists compatibility with the CX Standard and '79 to '80 Deluxe. Maybe that's when they skirted the filler port. The only time I've been conscious of the difference was with dccoleman's Deluxe, but I don't recall what year it is.

P.S. I still haven't come across that cap I got from you.

Yes I did, and yes it does. Processing and shipping took a little longer than I expected, but I may be spoiled by Amazon Prime and eBay's strict shipping guidelines.

I purchased what I believe to be a Deluxe tank (I don't know the difference between a Deluxe and Standard) without a gas cap. Here's some photos of it.

Hope this helps!

That's a Deluxe tank, or maybe a late Standard with the locking cover. The wire strike gives it away.
