I found this on CL. What a wild price! But apparently these are impossible to find now?

A new tank very quickly becomes a used tank with a fraction of the original purchase price. You can restore a lot of used tanks for that much $$$$

Nice find. Wow.

Only original once, eh? And you can't even buy a used tank in good shape for less than $500 anywhere today, then to have to sticker and paint it perfectly for under $1500 all in these days is tough.....so what is a few hundred bucks more I guess to have one perfect and ready to go.

I know I have seen maybe an 1985 RZ white tank and a couple yellow NOS tanks over the years sell for $2K US+ so there has to be some demand. Dang.

Oh, I found it listed on ebay too by the way:

So if a used RZ350 gas tank in xlnt shape gets bid to over $1,000 but the reserve is not met -- just what is an NOS one worth then?!?

I know of 1 Yellow and Black Brand New Old Stock tank and the seller is asking US $3500.00 plus ship

A modest "high" can be obtained by listening carefully to the sound of a 2-stroke hitting the fat part of the powerband while inhaling cool fall air tainted by the exhaust scent of VP-C12 and Golden Spectro, mixed at 24:1.
