Keep the stock seat. That other one just looks...bizarre - like the bike has ass cancer or something.

Too bad about that wadded-up tank. Looks like the paint on it would have been real nice otherwise.

for stock seat.


Off topic: I wonder what one of these would look like and function like as a dual-sport? Might be a fun project with the spare bike...

If you want one - get one! They're out there, just not often such a good deal. You just need to be patient and keep checking cl within what you consider a reasonable distance.

Hey, ALL my advice is worth at least TWICE what you pay for it!

Waitaminnit. Lemme check the math on that again.

Nope...no need to double check. The math would boggle the mind.....

Can't put a value on priceless/practical advice.

UPDATES!! As if you are surprised..... lol

I put the speedo cluster from the parts bike onto mine. It was is better shape and cleaner. I also lowered the front end because the bike felt a bit wiggly around corners....now it feels much more like it should, I can "push" into the corner better. You know what I am talking about....



The front wheel is better "tucked" into the front of the bike and feels much better to ride.

Here is the new speedo thingy..



Look at the profile or stance difference ....

Before lowering the front



After.....

Thanks Dave....

More progress tonight.

I now have a working horn, wires without electrical tape and no more broken turn signals.

I replaced the choke/turn signal/horn/high beam doohicky today from the parts bike. It was in great shape and NO electrical tape anywhere so I pulled mine and put the other one on. Works great!!

The left rear turn signal was JB welded on so I swapped that too....

More updates to come as I tear down the parts bike.

I actually got that parts bike running!!! I did some tinkering, parts swapping from my VF500f to the parts bike, a little gas into the carbs, and vroom!! I know the engine runs now....next step is to clean out the carbs and run the engine till it warms up....then check compression and look for any oil leaks. I have all the receipts for the engine rebuild from the previous owner so I may have a good engine on stand bye for my Interceptor.

This is a video of the parts bike I got from a guy who rebuilt the engine, but could not get it running. So he gave it to me. :-) I got her running in two days of working on it!! It had been sitting for about two years, so I was happy to see fuel flowing into the carbs.

Needs some TLC but I have a good known running engine for my 85 VF500. Oh, and I was playing with some new video production software and wanted a reason to try it out. lol

Wow! Congratulations! Would be interesting to hear what you found that was keeping it from running. Of course, you DO realize that having a running example next to it for reference/known good parts IS cheating?

And - cleaning the carbs may take as much time as getting it running did. Just sayin

LOL....yes true, but a win is a win.

Well, here is what I did.
Disassembled the outer garments of the bike.
I installed the coils.
Plugged the wires onto the spark plugs.
Wired the tach assy.
Pulled the broken starter switch out.
Drained the carbs.
Used gravity to pull fresh fuel into the carbs, then drained again.
Put my tank and fuel pump on, wired the fuel pump and put hoses where they go.
Checked all fluids, oil, coolant.
Put my battery into the bike.
Poured some gas into the carbs.
The Starter switch was defunked so I jumped the relay......and Vroom!!!


That's about it. Don't know why the guy could not get it to start......confusing. But there is no smoke or even a hint of engine issues. Sounds solid!

I guess it just didn't like Seattle? Or did it have anything to do with you muttering under your breath 'run, or you're parts.....'

These bikes...and others I have discovered will not start with a low battery. As soon as the battery is drained, you cannot get enough juice to run the starter and get good spark. I learned that with my KZ....that is why I used the Kick starter instead.

My guess is he was not using a fully charged battery....because I did nothing other than what I listed above and is started right up.

I am very greatful to have this....beleive me!
