'85 was the first year for this bike, and possibly the only year it was made in Japan. If I were buying an '85, I would assume it would have some issues, like the balancer. If it is in good overall condition, it is worth fixing, though top end parts might be hard to find for the 700. If it is in good condition, it shouldn't need any. Read through the Vulcan Verses before you go look at it, so you will know more about what to look for, and what to expect if you buy it. If it looks like junk, I'd pass.
I have 44,000 MILES on my '02, with nothing but cam chain tensioner problems so far. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
