Rare Buell Prototype Fuel Tank Mold

Hello everyone! I have acquired a Buell fuel tank mold, with tag that states "Buell R&D Storage Tag" in which it refers to the mold I have. I was wondering if anyone knew anything such as if it is a good find and worth anything. I have both pictures of the fuel tank mold, and the tag attached. I know nothing about bikes or anything, so please let me know what you think. It's made from cast iron as well.

Looks like a mold for the X1 fuel tank... they quit production of the model beginning with 2003.. I imagine that there were enough in inventory that the mold was put into storage and is now scrapped??? how did you get it??

According to the tag, it's a mould for the S3, S3T tank. Same life as the X1. Long since discontinued.

If you knew how to actually make something with it that would be cool. I'm guessing that takes some pretty industrial level tools to happen though. how did you end up with such a thing?

considering they closed down the production these molds usually end up somewhere.

either being sold or auctioned off or just abandoned somewhere.
