Buying a used tank?

So my tank has lots of rust in it, and has already been 'creamed' by the previous owner, so I'm in the process of searching for a replacement.

OEM part stores are incredibly expensive, Ebay doesn't have much right now, so I'm thinking of calling motorcycle salvage yards. Anyone have luck with these, or is there an easier way of finding one?

I've already posted a thread in Sell/Swap

Hey.....contact bigbillboski on here......he is my friend.....he has a tank in "PERFECT" condition from an '04 he is trying to sell .It is the black/silver paint scheme with OEM Vulcan emblems. He said he was going to list it on E-Bay soon. I have personally seen this tank and it is in very good condition. No rust......bike only had 8.500 miles on it before final drive went out and bike was parted out.
