Hello ladies and gents. Obviously new here and new owner of an 87 vt1100. I need a new tank. I've never seen one as rotted and destroyed as this. The entire top feels like paper machete! Question for you folks is " is there any other tanks that will fit this bike?" Different years or makes? Thanks for your help in advance

Part numbers 175A1-MM8-790ZB and 175A1-MM8-790ZA for your year. Honda saw fit to use different part numbers for different colors and different years.
That said, There are lots that will fit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_VT1100
So, instead of searching the tank, I searched the frame and here's the list. https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemparts/partsearch/honda_motorcycle?par...
A tank fthat matches. any of these will work

Click on "Where Used" to see list.
You can also find aftermarket custom tanks.

So are you saying there are different years that will fit? Sorry to be kinda a lumox here

No problem, if the frame is the same the tanks will interchange. It is possible that other years will work, also. One would need to know what changed on later or earlier frames and figure out if the tank mounting was still the same. That would be a bit of a search, to say the least. With the right tools you can make anything fit. It's a matter of time, taste and cost. I put a Ducati tank and seat assembly on a Kawasaki, just saying.
