tank ruined... want to buy another?

Hello all,
I hit a deer yesterday going down a county road in IA and messed up my tank pretty good. I thankfully walked away with just some road rash and a sore ankle. I know its a shot in the dark, but was wondering if anyone had a gas tank with the same color scheme as mine. I have found some on ebay, but none with the same color scheme. Basically just seeing if someone had one they could sell. Thanks for your time.

Glad to hear you are ok. As someone mentioned, you could always get it fixed and painted, or buy one then have it painted. The paint is the easy part. (I work & spray paint for a well known refinish paint company!)
