Welcome to the forum. If your tires aren't too old, somebody here might like your whitewalls. Have read several posts about folks trying to find some.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Well, they're stock size Maxxis Classics with approx 1200 mi, according to last owner, still have outer nubs. He threw in an 85 VN700 parts bike with the sale, has rod knock and doesn't want to shift into 2nd, had it there once & 3rd - 5th came easy, maybe a shift fork & bearing? needs fork seals & water pump seal? I'm planning a winter project with it, if for nothing else just to learn these bikes inside out, would like to lower the rear/rake & chop. Don't know if it's worth the effort without replacing the entire engine/tranny...
