F/S: 85 VN700 parts bike (Baltimore area)

I'm selling my VN700, its been sitting around collecting dust and rust for several years. It would be very restorable if you want a project bike, but it's probably worth more as a parts bike.

The engine ran fine before it was parked, but I've never had it on the road so I can't attest to everything else. Chrome pieces and trim are rusting. The last time I tried to move it, I noticed the rear wheel is locked up, possibly the brake shoes stuck to the drum or possibly something else. The throttle grip and switch are missing, I was in the process of replacing the throttle cables years ago when the project was interrupted. I've looked for them and can't find them.

Other than a few throttle parts, the bike is complete and has a clear title. I need it gone quickly, so make me an offer, and come pick it up! I don't have a trailer or anything, so you'll have to furnish transportation. I'll help load it up, but it's not going to be easy considering the locked wheel.

Contact me at nitrofish420 (at) hotmail.com with any questions or if you want pics. The sooner the better, otherwise it'll be in a junkyard soon.

$250 OBO!

Thanks for looking!

No rust, or dings, maybe some scratches. Old ass gas in it, but with Sta-bil. I also have an extra tank I bought off Ebay years ago that someone tried a horrible spray paint job on. Also a front fender with the same treatment. I've also got a windshield, not sure what brand. It's not perfect, but as long as nothing happened to it in storage, it should be usable.
