Remote Reservoir Alternative to '74 Corvette M/C

My ride uses a '74 'Vette M/C located under the floorpan, a very inconvenient place to access and check on a regular basis.

Is there a remote reservoir alternative I can get at NAPA?

Not at Napa, but Kugel Komponents make a MC cap with attachment points for remote inspection reservoirs. This way you are able to make the inspection reservios very small, since you still have the main reservoir on the master.

(the rest of the pedal setup is home made, not Kugel)

I bought two small reservoirs inteded fror the rear brakes on a Suzuki R1000 motor bike and placed them at the fire wall:

Thanks for the response.

From their site:
http://socuteurl.com/bumblebee
#5581701 Aluminum Remote Style M/C Cover Only For Corvette Cast Iron M/C. Includes aluminum cover with 1/8 npt and gasket. $40.00 plus new M/C plus remote reservoirs.

And PRC also makes as remote M/C kit.

I was aware of those. I'm looking for an OEM replacement that uses remote reservoirs.
