hi guys

tried posting a hi thread the weekend, but it seems my post hasnt been approved...

vn750 owner from the UK here

bought an '85 VN a couple of months ago, which is a decent bike, and only cost me 800 with a spare engine, and a few boxes of bits with it.

then, a spare bike came up, completely stripped down, but hte PO had raked the front end a little, so thought it would be ideal for a build, and it only set me back 175 too, so bargain of the century, hopefully lol.

will get pics up of both as soon as i can, but hope to be picking brains and getting ideas from this forum very soon.

gonna try pics

this si the project.
the engine is in bits due to the chains giving up, but hopefully, between the spare engine i have with my other bike, and this one, i can make a decent one.

and excuse the misssus getting in the way, she couldnt understand why i would wanna take a pic of the bike without her on it lol
