Here's link to a craigslist add showing two visions that are grey or maybe grey.  One tank is visible. I will be going to look at the exhaust on these in the next few days and can pass on more about the tanks if you are interested.

These are 82s I think but the tanks are the same, no?

The tanks are actually quite different. The '83 has a cutout in the saddle for the fuel level sender and the petcock opening is larger.

I know its gonna be a hard find but this is the best place to find one for sure. Im sure we'll see another 83 surface.

There is at least one listed on eBay.  You realize they usually need work, don't you?  Perforations along the lower areas is the main issue.  I thought of using a tank for a form to make a mold to make a tank.  However, fiberglass tanks are seldom seen these days.  They may not be legal, depending on the laws where you are.

Repairable yes, but there's a LOT of labour there - my NOS one cost less that the repair will cost

The tanks I saw Saturday were from a 82s.  Sorry that didn't pan out.
