For those who have never torn their bike down...

Here are some pics from last week when my bud helped me pull the engine and remaining bits from the bike. Kinda sad really, another VN750 never to be ridden again. (Ignore the date in the pics, I just reinstalled the batt in my camera and forgot to set it.)

Great shots, AJ. Looks like you had fun doing the break down. I'm sure many people will be glad to get parts from this one.

Kind of like the circle of life, isn't it?

Yes, I agree it's sad to see one go down, not to be riden again. But in the process, it's helpin' out a bunch of folks getting new life back into their rides, and those are nice to see rolling down the road.

Thanks for parting it out AJ

Yeah, thanks for the parts AJ.

Don't know if I'm going with a crew over to Louisiana or not, so it may be this weekend or a couple of weeks till I can put the parts I got from you on.

On a side note, those frames are super light without the engine. More so when you get the tires off. My bud was laughing because he had just fallen on his a$$ trying to look like he was riding a bike with no wheels. The frame had been propped up in the normal position, and when he sat on the back half, over he went. I almost dropped my camera.

That's my very first bike I ever owned. 2007 Ninja 250. The last year of the "classic" styling. She's been stuck on the lift for a couple weeks waiting for me to finish the 6k mile service.

In most states a tradgedy such as this requires an autopsy.
Could you give a "why" to this? What happened to the bike that required its "parting". In the meantime, condolences.
