Cheap fixer upper - 1986 VN 750

Hi All:

I dumped my daily rider back in April, in order to avoid hitting a car that cut me off. Only damage sustained to the bike was cosmetic, so if you don't mind a few scratches and feel like doing some minor part replacement you can have a great bike cheap. The mirrors need replacing, left turn signal needs new lenses and bulbs, but it will work. Engine runs fine, clutch and shifter mechanism is intact and works fine. The clutch lever was scraped, but not broken. She's got a couple scratches on the speedo housing and left air filter cover. Take a look and see what you think.

I'm in suburban Chicago area and would like $800.00 for my baby - I'll miss her, but I won't be able to physically ride for another year and frankly need the $. If you know someone in the area who may be interested contact me through my comcast e-mail. [email protected] More pictures are available - just didn't want to clutter up the website.

Thanks - I'll probably start working on my 1980 KZ 750 4 in the meantime.

Ah, such sweet temptation! Now that McKnight is running, and all the parts for Orleans are in hand, I may need a new project by fall. Alas, Chi-town is a tad far away for me. Someone should grab this - great price, and the engine looks clean.

I had a couple of inquiries, but nothing significant. If you know of anyone in the area who may be looking for a good inexpensive VN 750 - please pass the info along.

Thanks riders. BTW, the physical therapy is not moving very quickly. Sheesh.

You called him on Sat and told him that you will be home after 7 and you would call him.
YOU did not call him, he had a truck wating to take it home, waited 2 hours after work for you with the money.
You also sent me a Email, now when will you be home?
We work 5 miles from your house, get off work at 5. Do you really want to sell the bike or what.
