Newbie VN750 Owner

I just bought a 1986 that has a little under 20K miles. Needs some TLC, which I will give it.

Anyway, I noticed I should have posted here first, and didn't. Oh well, I guess I had my sights set on getting advice on fixing the carbs first (work in progress).

Best time of year to buy a used bike, work on it in the Winter to get it ready for riding season.

Welcome to the group, jimdeforge. You're right about the timing of your purchase - couldn't be better. Fix her up so she's ready for the riding season. Good luck my friend.
