Fuel level sensor on petcock

Hello I have a 1977 bmw r75 and I am building a cafe racer I had the idea to make a fuel level sensor to it. I see that some of the older moto guzzi bike had them. The r 75 has 2 holes for 2 pet cocks would it be possible to use one of the holes for a fule sensor. And do those sensors power a on/off light or a gauge. I have not seen any one do this. I thought that it would be a unique part of the bike. Thanks

This is what I saw and what gave me the idea If I fit this on the tank and supply a voltage and ground to a light would this work? Thanks

That looks like to need it's own hole to mount it.

How about something like this?

Universal Float Free Motorcycle Fuel Gauge FuelGaugePro - Bar Graph Display
The bmw has 2 pet cock holes so I can use one for the sensor and the other for the fule. Would that work?
That's a low fuel sensor only, it can switch a light on your dash if you have one. Doesn't support a gauge and yes it bolts into a fitting that is welded into the bottom of the Guzzi tank.
That is exactly what I am looking for so if i put that in the tank and run the wires to the light on my gauge it would work right. Thanks
