Tank Needed

I am in need of acquiring an 07 spirit vt750DCA fuel tank. Anyone know where I can get a good deal or of anyone selling a used tank? I can't afford a brand new tank.

Ebay is our friend. If you don't want to spend maximum dollars, but there will be issues with a used tank. And still $300.00

It is for me. Shop smart and you can save a lot of money. Hard to beat ebay.

I have shopped ebay for a long time. Always fun to get a bargain and free shipping.

But is it the same with the rest of you that ebay has started charging sales tax on purchases this year?
Here in Washington state we have sales tax so it is now added to the checkout.
Where I live it is 8.6 % but not far in Seattle it is 10%.
Yikes !

Yep, true story and the party's over. You can still get good deals. Some just come with a tax bill as well. I don't know if it's going to save the brick and mortar stores, but at least the government gets theirs.

check your local craigslist. There's a couple in my area but unfortunately none for your bike.

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

What is wrong with yours? It may be smart to clean out rust if that is the case, and do some simple bondo work and paint it.

Since most used tanks will be scraped or dented up anyway.

I forgot about craigslist. I didn't think anyone used it anymore. Thanks
