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.
