The parts book for 1979 thru 1985 lists: 61023-83A, fits 83 to 85 XLX

That may be the mounts or it may be the style of the tank. I do not know if the mounts are the same as other years. I would check the catalog companies like J&P cycles to see what they list in their catalogs.

PS, you also need dimpled bars on an 85 so make sure of that when ordering.

Any Sportster tank from 1982-1992 should be an exact fit. The 1993-2003 tanks will also fit, but require rubber bushings to mount correctly. Not all seats in this era will work with all tanks (the 3+ gal ones), though.
