Found this bike today

Parts bike, 41,400miles, seized engine. Looks like new!
It is at Steeles Cycle. They wouldn't sell me the whole bike and wanted $300 just for the gas tank.

that's kinda crazy, that bike looks complete! $300 for the tank, sounds like they're REALLY trying to stretch their partsyard profits...

I'd say good luck to them. Unless they're throwing stuff on ebay, I have to wonder how successful they'll be selling it piece by piece out of their shop. I'd buy the whole thing for $300

They do.
Great deals from steelescycle-used-motorcycle-parts | eBay stores
https://www.ebay.com/str/tdmotorcycl...orecat=2685278

Steeles and TD are amazing resources for parts here in Denver. If you bring in the listing to their store, they give a substantial discount over the eBay price for not having to pay PayPal and eBay fees.

I paid $225 for a 2005 factory new tank, they took my best offer, down from $250.
