I have a couple of questions that I hope everyone could help me with. I own a 85 Vn700 with 2k miles and the bike is completely stock. From the tires to the brakes and on. I have been looking at the tires and there is no rot, but can you trust 20+ year old tires? I'm thining no and haven't had and issues with the 50 miles I put on her. I just got my license and thinking about replacing them for new one next year. I don't plan on driving her at 100 mph, long distances or the rain unless I have too. The next question is should I keep the original tires? Would an older bike like this be worth more with ALL origianal components one day. I know she's not worth more than say a 96 750 but, 10 years from now she might. I have a second seat so I don't rip the original one and have seen used 85 rims on e-bay. Or maybe I'm just being to anal. Any suggestions.
Keep the rubber side down!
