Edmonton Alberta

We need more Canucks. I'm feeling a little under represented here.

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some

I haven't seen more than an handful here. SAw a couple for sale online for way too much money and too many miles.

Have no idea what they ride like, never rode one, and by the time I do it won't be anywhere near stock, so I still won't know what it rides like.

I got my '85 750 ( yes its a canuck model, not a 700) as a roller and a bunch of boxes. The price was too good to pass up.

Don't forget about us migrated canucks! Anyway, for ontario I've lived in london, kitchener, st thomas, missisaga, pickerington & petrolia. You know, where oil was discovered in ontario. For alberta, I lived in calgery, just off the trans-can, east side. I loved alberta best. The mountains out there make colorado look like foot hills!

Canucks everywhere

It seems that you can't go anywhere without finding a transplanted Canuck! Sneaky little buggers aren't we?

My 750 is actually an American bike. Don't know how it got here, but I bought it from the local dealer - was traded in on a Vulcan 1500. eally good condition and a fantastic deal.

I took it to a Show 'N Shine a couple of nights ago and it got a good bit of attention.
