87 - neglected $30 bike
For those of you who like inflicting pain on yourselves you will like this. 87 VN750A with 9900 miles. Looks like it was in a little fire some time in its life maybe as part of a left side tip-over then passed through several owners in between being parked outside.
Issues: haven't been able to get the motor to turn over cause the starter doesn't work - tried good 12 V to the starter pos terminal; not even a spark. I suspect the motor is burnt up from trying to crank a frozen motor. Will pull the starter to see if it's something repairable. May try pulling the plugs to see if I can turn it over with the rear wheel or by pushing it down a hill.
Also needs: complete headlight & lt ear, blinkers, radiator screen, fr tire, fr brake fix, seat cover, lt carb intake hose (this may have allowed water into the fr cyl), side covers, 1 air cleaner cover, and a tail light lense. That's all!
