Have one with a fairly deep crease and a knee dent, both on the left side, the rest is good inside and out with no rust. No cap, petcock, or gauge sender. 2003, maroon and gray. Just took it off last month.

It cost me $25 to get one shipped from MI. or MN. by USPS.

Yes but do they fit a VN 750. That is the real question.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Tried all day yesterday to make time to get pics, quicker to take some than search memory cards. Pics of the dent are all gone from hard-drive and web.

Here's a pic of the good side, and below is an ebay link to another tank in case you like your dent in a different spot :q

Kawasaki Vulcan VN 750 2006 Gas Tank Fuel | eBay

Two pics... found one that shows the crease a bit, maybe you can blow it up.





If you're still interested let me know and I'll take some new pics with it off the bike and stripped (cap, sender, petcock).

Still my favorite paint scheme of all vulcans BY FAR. With tanks, they are either flawed or not. There's really no inbetween. We see a tank scratch, dent, chip, etc and it looks horrible either way and makes us cringe. I'm good with spending $150 on a clean tank, or as little as possible on a defective one. Shipping kills it since thats $25 neither of us will ever see, and I'm only in for a bashed tank for around $75 tops/total.

I paid $250 for the '06 tank I'm using, it's new. Saw a new 2003 tank go for $400 a while back, too rich for me. I see a lot of wrecked tanks on ebay for too much money.

Here's some pics, let me know, we can continue by PM if you want.
