New to the VN750

I've been riding since 1975. I was 14 and bought my first Honda 100. Since then I have owned dozens of bikes, a lot of different makes and models. I bought my first Vulcan in 2006, it was a used 1999 Nomad. I really loved that bike but sold it to buy a new VN2000 in 2007. After a year on it, sold it and went to the Goldwing (still have the GL1800, now with a trike kit). After a few other Honda's, Yamaha's and Harley's (several at the same time) I came back to a 2005 Vulcan Nomad 1600, rode it for a year and sold it to a good friend that needed a good bike. Before selling it I purchased a 2001 VN750 with a lot of problems. The plan was to "fix it up" and use it around town, to work, etc. After almost 2 years I still have not got her running. The Carbs were torn up pretty bad by someone before I got it, it also leaks oil out of the case and the gas tank petcock leaks even worse than the crankcase. I still plan to fix it, even watched Andrew Roth's video on his rebuild of one. I'm really having a problem finding parts and gaskets for it. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
