Fitting a cb160 tank on a cb360...
have to grind down front frame tabs
pound out the front of the tunnel a bit
fabricate a way to mount in the back
and replace petcock because OEM cb160 petcock hangs too low and hits valve cover.

In other words, totally worth it because it looks awesome.

Here's a 1979 Honda CX500C tank on a 1985 CMX250C Rebel. Requires nothing more than a couple bushings to tighten the fit at the neck and a 1/4" pad at the rear bolt to make it fit tight

Dt400 tank drops into the front mounts on an xs650.  Rear mount might need work.

Here's a Suzuki t20( I think) tank on the RD400, has  a fair amount of space between tank and headstock...

Heres a Ducati tail section on an Rd, it looks great! I found this bike's owner , and a picture of how it mounts, he says:
I'm not 100% sure since it was on there when I bought the bike, but I'm fairly certain it's the DUCSSS2 seat from AirTech -

The frame was modified to weld on a 'perch', onto which the seat is mounted using a single bolt from the top.  Not the most elegant solution, but it works! You can see the top of the bolt in the photo you posted.  That is what the 'perch' looks like .

CB900F tank fits on a CB750SC frame with adjustment to the rear mount.
