the (Kawa)saki-bomb LIVES! back from the dead!

I went out to the garage today and move the handlebars up to where they should (somewhat) be. I took off what was left of the windshield and took the stater control/throttle assy. apart. after I got it apart I was able to (somewhat) fix the stater button. I will still need a new stater button, but at least I was able to fire up the bike! the (Kawa)saki-bomb lives! oh yes, it breathes again! it's "back form the dead"-"back form the dead"!

ok, that's the good news. but after looked at it some more, I noticed that if I put the forks straight, that the front wheel looked like it was still sightly turned to the right.

so, VN750 gods, what say you to this?

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

I know when I wrecked mine the forks were twisted some. I was able to just loosen everything, straighten & tighten it down. I hope you're that lucky.
