Get a long thin 4mm piece of aluminium, drill two holes one end, a single bend and another hole to attach to the frame.

This arrangement had lasted my girlfriend and I a combined 130,000km. It's simple and cheap

 Do you have any pics of how you ran the fuel lines across?

Just run the right hand side one between the carb and the top of the cylinder,  as long as it is not touching the engine it will be fine 👍

Just twiddling my thumbs and over researching while waiting for the tank to arrive next week. On a side note, I attempted to repair the crack in the tank with Dynagrip putty which apparently can be used on plastic and ok with petrol. Seemed to work, didn't overfill the tank and had a 10km ride around town. 2 days later, warm day and it just peeled off. Not flexible enough I guess with tank expansion

I don't use anything to secure the rear of the tank.
Bolted at the front, held down by the seat at the rear.
It's not been any problem.

Routing the fuel line from the right - under the air inlet, behind the carb.

The fuel lines should be below the tap for their entire length.  If you route it up over the engine, that becomes the lower limit of the tank. No idea how much fuel you'd then not be able to access in the right side without laying the bike over on it's left.

It's a bit tidier these days.  You should've seen it when I first did it.  Spaghetti!
