Default "EAGLE" oil tank

Hey guys I have a question about an oil tank that came on a '73 XLCH I picked up a while ago. It is some what square shaped with an eagle attached to one corner. I have never seen one like this and was curious if it is an after market part or something that came from the factory as an option or special order.

I will post a pic of it as son as i figure out how since pb has changed since the last time I used it (years ago)

Thanks in advance for any and all info available

Just a warning... if PB = photobucket, no one will be able to see the pic because it will quickly be blurred by PB because you are "over allowed bandwidth". Use your Flickr account or look for another hosting site.
