Parting out an 85 VN700

Starting next week, I'm going to be parting out my 85 VN700.
EVERYTHING will be for sale on it.
Enterprise windshield by Slipstreamer has surface scratches that can be buffed out. Comes with mounting hardware.
Speedo shows 31K and change. Surface rust around the rings, buckets are in good shape.
Everything works except one horn.
2 small dents in the gas tank.
Handlebar swithches are in excellent shape, and have come off of a newer bike w/o the self cancelling setup.
Toolbox is in excellent shape with no scratches.
Newer sissy bar with pillion pad chrome is in excellent shape.
Older style luggage rack that mounts under the sissybar, and comes with adaptor for the seat.
The headlight has a rock chip on the lense.
Both forks will need to be rebuilt as the seals are leaking.
Both tires are new with less than a hundred miles on them. Shinko Tourmaster, stock size.
Stock exhaust system with some slight surface rust on the heat shields that can be buffed out. I will get new stainless screws for the heat shields.
Mufflers have some slight surface rust on the bottom side, and have no rot in them.
Seat has been recovered.
New K&N Pod filters with less than 50 miles on them.
Drive shaft is in great shape with little wear on the splines.
I'm in the process of tearing the engine down, and will have internal parts from it. It has a knock in it, and I'm not sure what it is. hopefully the bottom end will be in good shape.
Make me an offer on the parts, and everything that can be shipped via priority I will send that way. Larger stuff will be sent via UPS.
I will keep the price as low as I can on the shipping.
If you are interested in something, please PM me with an e-mail address and I will send you pics of the part you are interested in.
I can't get pics to upload onto here so it's easier for me to send them to your e-mail address.
Thanks all.
Any questions, please PM Me.

The brake Master has a crack in the sight glass, and all of the fluid has leaked out of it.
I must have cracked it when I moved. Is still works but the glass will have to be replaced.

I had the same problem with one MC i bought. I just took some 1/8" plexiglass and cut it out with a hole saw and hot glued mine back in the MC. Took some files to the plexiglass cut circle till it just fit perfect.

Last call on parts.
Tomorrow I'm going to finish breaking it down, and start putting parts on E-Bay.
I have all of the internal parts for sale. Everything is in good shape except for the crank.
It is in good shape, but will need to be turned. The rear rod is good, and I will have the front one checked as the bearing had spun in it.
Oil pump and water pump are good. All of the bearings, and oil lines are good.
Damper gears are good, rubbers are shot. Damper shaft is good. Starter clutch and gears.
2 good starters, 2 CDI boxes, 2 starter solenoids, 2 sets of header pipes, 1 set of heat shields, 1 set of stock mufflers, 1 set of Harley Dyna mufflers with heat shields.
Carbs have been cleaned, and sync'd, AGM MF battery 7 months old.
2 new Shinko tourmasters, stock size with 50 miles on them. Gauges, and warning light cluster, will sell the gauges separately or together. Turn signals, fenders, tail light housing, plate holder and light. Good seat with foam, excellent seat cover with buttons and pad, will sell together or separately. Good M/C square top with a cracked sight glass, good front brake lines, rotors and calipers. Drive shaft with good splines, middle drive unit.
Tranny gears with shift drum and shift forks in good shape.
Complete head assemblies, cylinders with pistons, and cam chain assemblies with center shaft. Good magneto and stator. R/R is still good. Good J/B and fuses.
It all needs to go, would rather have someone from the forum end up with it and put it to good use.
Make me an offer on anything you are interested in.
