Im looking at a VN700 close to Peoria, IL. All I want is the frame.
Need someone wanting to make some bucks parting out the rest...will pay $125 for the frame and title. Rest is yours for $175...engine turns, not frozen. Good tank and fenders and such....guessing a good $4-500 in parts...

PM me if interested, or post here.

If I can find a friend with a truck willing to go on an 8 hr drive round trip and can raise the initial funds for the bike/trip I'd be interested...might be a big if though.

Wish I could help. I make a trip from IA through StL often and I could go through Peoria. I don't have a way to move a bike though unless it's under my ass.

I think that would take about 2 tanks of gas to drive there and back. That's nearly $200 in gas lol. I'm more than willing to pick it up just don't know if I have that kinda gas money either.

Yeah I know. That is a good deal but I don't think I could afford the gas to go get it. I know we have members closer to it than I am.

I'm hoping someone pipes in....

I would pay the extra $175, I would want a few parts.. not sure what yet. They could get what's left after me and Wolfie. They would at least get an engine since I am not paying to ship it. I want the tank if it isn't bad to ship, the carbs, and maybe the brake system if I can't get mine fixed... not sure what else cause I haven't looked at the bike.

I could get "just the frame" in the Camry...but thats it...I tried to put an inversion table in it, had to disassemble it and put it in the back seat (back seats fold down and it opens to the trunk)....
But no way a whole bike...besides, its still my Mom's car....she'd kill me...

Near Peoria

I have been looking for the ad for this bike. I am about an hour from where I think it is. Is it listed in Craig's List?

I been mailing back and forth with a Kawi rep about my bike and now this one...Im hopin "maybe" he can set up a transport for me....what Id REALLY like to do is restore it fully stock, then donate it for a few years to Ted's Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh...he has a separate Japanese classic/vintage section....and Ive known the man for near 35 yrs, and he's helped me out a lot back in the day....

I mostly want to "save" this bike, since its almost one of the first VN Vulcan Series....I mean, hell....it was the 767th made 30 yrs ago....Im trying to preserve OUR heritage, AND make it public, than getting another bike for myself....Im happy with my Bessie.... ;)
I just dont want it to end up in a scrapyard, or in the hands of some kid thats gonna make a bobber outta it....
