I need a Gas Tank

AAARRRRGGGG!!!!
I was out side and uncovered my VN700 was gonna start it and let it run a few minutes. I turned around and it fell over and landed on a 5gal bucket, the whole side of my gas tank is caved in
I'm sick to my stomach!
Anyway, it's an 86 VN700 anyone have an extra they'd part with?
Can someone tell me if they have used tanks off other years, models, or makes that can made to work?
Any help is much appreciated

Any '85 - 2006 VN 750 tank....all physically the same.

Tho, Check with others, maybe a Kaw 500 would be adaptable.

-Purchased 2008 w/8800mi
Replaced ALL Cables . Kuryakyn LED Voltmeter

I have seen a VN800 and VN1500 tank work with some mods done to the tank... I can't remember right now who did it or what had to be done.

Doesn't that also require tank modification ?
