just got woke up by a text from a friend who wants to get rid of his bike, . a few years back i was eye balling it . its a 1985 700 the tank is leaking and seriouslly hasnt ran since jesus was a baby. now my bike has bent handel bars and some chrome pieces that took some pavment when my buddie decided to go sledding down the street with it a few months ago... now is everything transferable ie bars headlight tach yada yada.... or is this $200 he wants for it a dumb idea . hell if the final drive is good i could sell that and basically get my parts i need for free right? he said he has title in hand


sorry for the long run on sent im tired and i cant sleep thinking if this will work on my 750?


this a bad idea ?

So, what's the problem? A parts bike for $200. I mean, free is best, but that's not a lot, and you can probably sell anything you don't use and get your money back.

Not positive, but from all I've read on here, most everything is interchangeable.

you are correct almost everything else interchanges,this model does have self canceling signals and a little difference in the wiring harness,I believe I would tear his arm off to get it for that price if you have room to store it,if i were you.On the other hand if you need a set off stock bars I let you have a set for a 10 spot and shipping if that is all you want.Oh this is off topic but your pm about fishing Erie has me curious is the western Basin near Port Clinton?

I doubt you're going to have anyone talk you out of this my friend. It seems you need it and the price is right. You could make that 200 back pretty easily after you spend it. My advice? Go for it dude.

I would talk you out of it, but it will not do me any good since you are so far from me. lol

I got a parts bike in bad shape for 200$. I have sold some parts off of it. It is a good buy.

Don't do it. Send me his contact info so I can buy it and remove the temptation.

I'm not going to talk you out of it. I've spent a lot more than that on things with zero return. If you have the $200 and the space jump on it. Like a pack of dogs on a 3 legged cat.

^ Hellz yeah! Quick story: I met Ron_G a couple weeks ago. He was nice enough to drive me from my new place (he lives kinda near by) to the old one so I could grab the meanie. Nice guy by the way, just a real class act. Anyway, he was in a bit of a hurry but when we pulled in the driveway of the old place I go, "Do you want to take a look at the meanie real quick?" He goes, "Yeah, I never pass up a chance to look at a different bike!" LOL!!! Bikers man, wudaya gonna do? :D

I'd want to do the same. Looks like a nice tooling around bike. I bet it's fast, too.

^ Yeah it's pretty quick. I was sold when I read the specs but once I saw the color in person, there was no turning back. I get chatted up in traffic all the time. Usually people asking what the color is called.
