1986 Vn750 for $400

Found an 86 vn750 on craigslist for $400.
Ad says hasnt been ridden in 2 years and needs carbs gone thru.
Thinking about snatching it up..for only $400 it be worth it right?
As long as the guy has the title.

I concur, a title is a must. The great thing is even if you don't fix it you know where to part it out lol.

I paid $400 for it...its in ok condition, for its age and mileage, its got 36K on it.
Here are some pics.









As u can see in the last pic, im getting a collection here, lol. the two in the back are the 85/86 Kawi 454s i am slowly restoring. One is for my dad, the other one may go to my wife..or this vn750 will, so we both have vn750s lol

Anyway, it looks like someone replaced the stator in it, theres red gasket stuff on the outer engine cover, im probably sure they didnt do the stator mod.
Also the stator cover with the 3 screws, the 3 screws are stripped to hell, gonna have fun getting them out.
All the sidecovers and stuff are in the box along with the airfilter ears and other parts.
It's gonna need new blinkers, new foot brake pedal, new front brake and clutch levers, new mirrors, probably new brake pads, and i will replace all the cables too.
The seat is in good condition, no luggage rack or back tool box .
I will start gathering parts for it this winter and have it on the road next fall hopefully.

You offered him $225 and he said no or yes? why didnt you buy it?
I think its well worth $400...even if i parted it out i could at least make $600 on it if not more.

It was a long drive to get it, driving to Minneapolis, and all the dam road construction, and then of course rush hour on the way back! holy crap...
