(Materials easily available at any work site )

Tools used:
Long nose side cutter pliers

And here is the finished product...

@ Islero, Jay, and Jos: Thanks you guys for your word of appreciation

@ Sinner: Thanks dude... and a very good suggestion man!

Although I cant think of anything for the tank at the moment (anyone any suggestions?) but I will see what I can get my hands on to complete the bike.

sorry to see such a beautiful beast to go wasted like this!!
hope you get it fix and rolling again man!!
