Depends on how far you want to go with it. I put $2000 and a lot of work into a free '85 Goldwing LTD, finally gave up and sold it for $500 to a guy that was going to part it out. I lost $1500 and all that work, and the frustration that went with it.
Oh come on now Jerry ,that's the fun part.;)

Im a hoarder...of bikes and bike parts, atvs and atv parts, and trucks and truck parts...

I have 2 Ford Rangers...one is my daily driver the other is a project truck im fixing up to be a winter beater.
I have tons of miscellaneous ford ranger and explorer parts in my garage and sheds.

I currently have 4 motorcycles now...only 1 is currently rideable..the other 3 are being fixed up...and I have tons of bike parts in my garage and sheds.

I have 2 atvs and tons of spare parts for them too.

I have more projects than time and money now lol.
But the key is...im not in a big hurry to finish them all at once...


The other Ranger I am now working on, should be on the road by end of October. If not sooner.
The other bikes will be for next summer and fall.

The 454 was a really cool bike. I had a brand new '86 model. One of the dumbest things I ever did was trade it for a new '88 EX500. I knew I had made a serious mistake on the ride home.

I have 3 cars, a truck, 4 motorcycles (one is a parts bike) 2 scooters, and 2 mopeds. That's TWELVE vehicles, 11 of which are registered, insured, and running. I have 2 huge boxes of assorted bike parts.

Not that simple.
The title was already filled out.
Looks like the registered owner Adam Nelson filled it out and sold it to Evan Goodier he never transferred it over and then he sold it to the guy I bought it from.

wow, I just bought an 85 Vn700 on craigslist for 400 dollars that hopefully just needs some carb work and fluid changes and such. When i finally get it to my house i'll take pictures and make a thread for it. Good buy man!
