There's pics of a red 05 tank swapped onto a 01-03 somewhere about 2 yrs back on these forums.(don't remember)
They did the fairings too. As for the tank it looked like ass, it left a hideous void in bottom back corner even if you fabbed up some plastic filler pieces like a 04-05 has.

Who was it that posted up the full conversion, IconGSXR? Something like that, they did a full fairing swap and it turned out looking pretty good. Although, I don't recall if they did the tank as well.

Edit: Doesn't look like the tank was swapped
