another vulcan in my garage.

I just picked up an 85 vn700 in a killer deal. It works out to have cost me about $100 when all my dealing was done. I got two tanks...one pretty good and one kinda banged up. Missing some parts but I'll work it out.

Hmmm....it looks like this project is going to be an in between projects project. I picked this bike up with another project bike and the other one needs less work to get it going. The wife actually wants to work on these with me, so that's cool. I know it will make some of you guys mad when I tell you how much I paid for both lol. $200... that's after I sold my air compressor for $300 to make room for these. So my out of pocket expense is $100 per bike. Not too shabby.

I think you lost the missing parts when you turned it upside down.
