The SP 2TK was the only model with an ally cover.

I have seen less than 6 available on Ebay in about 5 years and I keep my eye out for them.
There is a even rarer part needed to go with them though.
I have never seen for sale the filler cap fitting ring.

Be aware; the tank cover is not a straight bolt on conversion if that was what you were contemplating.

Good ones would make circa £80 I reckon.

The seat unit (plastic one piece sidepanels and tail light surround) is less rare. circa £40
but finding a one that does not require major repairs is the harder part.

Then a seat itself is required...beware ; they look very similar to the SP 3TJ unit but have differences...then the rear "bum pad" tooltray underseat access.

The hardest part to source for the tail section will be a straight alloy subframe....proper rare...circa £125.
This then requires a steel sub/subframe that other parts affix to.

I have an inclination you are attempting to convert a 1WG Genesis frame to emulate a 2TK.

I have had discussions on this previously and it is not a simple bolt on process if you want a proper job and not just a bodge up.

The 2TK might look similar to the Genesis but they're more of a ground up redesign than an evolution
