Rookie

Hi my name is Jason from central Texas area. Just got my old mans cruiser back from my cousin after its been sitting in a garage for about 15 years. Just cleaned out both carbs adjusted clutch cable tune up fluid change and rewired his hack job. My old man bought the vm750 in 1986 off the local show room floor still in the crate. We drove it back home that day and I was hooked. Now I'm learning how to drive it with mostly my dads 4k miles on it. Doing a seat swap from a Vulcan 900 and small things like different turn signals and lincence relocation bracket and regulator replacement. One small dent to get out of the tank and needs tires from dry rotting. Live this bike and brings back good memories and time with my old man. Glad he's still alive to see it back in my hands.

Good luck with the bike. While you're putting on new tires I would definitely do a spline lube.

Honda Moly 60, or any other moly grease, is suggested.

Well hello there! I would like to welcome you to the forum though I am new here as well. I have been in the hobby of motorcycles for years now though have only taken a resurgence a couple of months back because I had my back damaged and needed all the time to recover from it.

It sure is great to be back and with all the new things that are coming, it just makes for a really interesting day at the office once again.
