Am new to the site and it is very helpfull.
I have a VN 750-A1 which is an 1985. All listings for parts start at an A2 which is an 1986. My question is are these years parts interchangable and to what years can you interchange parts for an 1985 .
I have an 85 as well...are you sure yours is a 750 and not a 700? I thought all 85's were 700s.
Either way, most parts from later year 750 models will fit your 85. The wiring system changed in 91 (not sure the exact year?). Most other items (with the exceptions of the brake fluid resevoir and the brake lever and a couple other minor things) are interchangable for every year.
I have a later model year tank and fenders on my 85 700. I also have later model year chrome side covers. ith the exception of my black engine and wheels, you cannot tell the difference!
