85 vulcan VN750
I am new to this site. I have been interested in bikes for a while but have never really gotten going with it. Yesterday I passed a neighbors house and he had an 85 vulcan 750 out in his yard with a sign on it "needs a little work, best offer". I stopped and talked, he has had the bike for 8 years, and his brother had it before that. Has always been kept in a garage. He is buying a new bike next spring and wanted to get rid of it.
Here are the details of the bike: He said last time he started it was a few months ago. It needs a battery and a new starter switch/button. Seems to be in great shape, very small ding and paint scratch on the gas tank, other than that, cosmetically perfect. 9,800 miles.
I am somewhat mechanically inclined, so I guess my questions are:
what should I expect this bike to be valued at when running
Any other advice or input would be appreciated. thanks,
