I have some pics but not sure how to post em as i'm using my phone. Have discovered during tear down that the wiring harness was hacked by someone. Some of thd parts i thought were good aren't. So i have a question for you guys? Has anyone gone comepletely down to the frame and restored it. Also seen how some things are a tight fit on this bike not sure how to get to them to relpace or work on them. Not ready to give up just not sure what to do now.

Have decided to sell the parts off the bike Doc. I no longer have the patience to deal with it just don't have the time. If you know of anyone lookin for parts cheap let me know. I'm not internet savvy. All new parts i have purchased are for sale as well.

In what kind of shape is the fuel tank?

I'm in Pennsylvania. Little town zip code 15845. Guys this is what i know i have good a couple of turn signals, a head light housing. Two top triple clamps. One bottom. Handlebars and mount. Stock seat and a mustang seat a brake lever. The stock exhaust is not pretty but all there. The kick stand, the air filter pods( not pretty but still work.No filters in them) ,pedals,Pegs, side covers. A radiator and cover. The plastic reflector pieces that go under the tank. The gas tank has surface rust on the bottom and rust on the spout but no dents. If you pm me i'll give you my number and send pics. Some stuff is still on the bike. Others well not. Whatever doesn't get bought is getting scrapped with the frame. Hesitant to sell the motor as it was being run with no air filters just the pod covers, but if you really want it we can try to come to an arrangement. Everything must go!

You're more wishy-washy than a politician :D

Keepin it, sellin it, keepin it. The VN is one of the easiest bikes I've ever worked on, and the experience makes ownership of any vehicle better (and cheaper) due to the inherent mechanical knowledge learned.

Invest in yourself and finish the project :D

I could use a clean headlight bucket and a rust-free headlight ring.

Would also be interested in the Mustang seat.

Pics are worth thousands of words. ;)

I will ship if you pay handling...thtanner i have no time for a full on restoration got outta project bikes because of findin alot of junk and then sellin parts. Bought the bike to help a friend and found too many issues. So parts and scrap it is end of disscussion. Sorry to be wishy washy but if it would of been only one issue like the triple clamp sure. Nope it's the whole wiring harness the engine bein run without air filters. Rust in all the wrong places and most important no time

Can't use a black bucket, sorry.

Still interested in the seat if I'm eligible. My cell won't do pics, but I can PM my email if that helps you. I use Paypal if you do.

My mistake, need to get closer to my monitor. I read 'back' as 'black'.
