Parting out 86 VN750

I have an 86 VN750 that has serious chain slap and is losing some oil out of some pin holes in the case. I'm not putting any more money into it and I'm not going to rip anyone off by selling it just because it's running so I'm parting it out.
I have Vance & Hines Cruzers that have seen under 500 miles. I'm asking $225 for those.
I'm located in Eugene, OR and can quote shipping 24 hours after request during the week.
I'd rather give you folks first dibs before hasseling with ebay or Craig's list.

The acct's all need replaced and they have chewed up the inside of the engine enough that oil seems to be oozing somewhere out of the engine case itself.
It also does not fire on the rear piston under 3500 RPMs.
At anywhere from 40-60 dollars a piece for all 4 chains and without knowing what else is going on with the rear cylinder I just don't see putting out another thousand dollars to get this bike running right.
I'm more than happy to sell it whole to anyone interested in an engine swap or if they want to work on it themselves.
It's a running bike and I believe I can ship it pretty reasonably.

25 Dollars a piece on the side covers. They are in great shape and custom painted matte-black.

They are stock grips. The throttle is in good shape, the left hand one is a little worn and has been punctured on the end where it fits against the handlebar tube. 10 dollars for both if you are interested.
