Question Minor accident, curious about replacement gas tank?

Sadly had a very minor accident involving some gravel on a 60 degree slope of cement at my friends out in the sticks.

Gas tank is really the only thing that needs replacing. I ride a 2003 VStar 650 Classic in the deep pimp purple.

How do I go about getting a matching gas tank to replace the junked one? Hoping it's possible!

Thanks for any info!

Yup. Literally making an offer on it right now. Is $200-$300 a good price for these used??
