Fuck you and your $300 low mileage trumpet-piper. Lol. Bought mine with almost 40k on the clock for $800. I've already got more of my soul in that bike than I have left in me, no fucking way I'm getting rid of it. I know an engine rebuild is only one or two riding seasons away... After that I'll be locked into it forever.

HAHAHAHAHAHa.......Dont hate the player; hate the game....lmao.

40k is nothing on a water cooled motor. Especially a honda. You could prolly get away with crackin her open, hone it down, re-ring, gaskets and your good.

it would be sweet if they had aftermarket cams for this thing. Alittle P&P on the heads. 10 or 20 over pistons. 10.5:1 cr. With exhaust you could prolly hit 60hp at the wheel. On a 400lb bike???? she would fuckin hall ass...lmao.

shiit... my POS already has 10.5:1 CR but it weighs closer to 900lbs I think.. from what I hear though, if I can ever get it running, the 1100cc's will move it pretty damn well anyway..

Yeah, those 1100's are fucking wild. That's why if I wasn't already so inundated, I'd drive down and offer you too much to refuse haha.

balloonot, the single biggest problem with rebuilding VT's is the rings. If you're extremely lucky, you might be able to find a set on egay, but with that kind of luck, you should be in Vegas. At least with my 700, I'm going to have to ship a piston off and have new rings custom made. That's the only reason I didn't tear into it last winter, and probably won't this year either.

Well I suppose I should let everyone know that I've got a 1985 VT700 and so far enjoy it. Only had it since September and haven't really got a lot for riding in and now its parked for the winter, not because I'm a pussy and don't want to ride in the snow (although that's really the majority of it) but the fact that they salt the sh!t out of the roads here in Wisconsin. So with that being said it won't be until late April sometime after a few good rains to wash all the snow off the roads that my Shadow will be in action again.

Aaand as winter hits we get a few more classic noobs. Lol. Burgundy, that's exactly why I haven't put dualsport tires on my scoot yet, my car is literally covered in salt scum and there aint no way that's happening to my precious.

Rocky, GET YOUR FUCKING PICS AND INTRO UP. 'Nuff said.

Oh, and GARs. Fucking noobs.

Yeah, I know the post is not quite up to date, but wanted to be added to the group of riders who have an older bike. Picked up an 84 Shadow VT700 and hope it won't need too many things before I run out of money to buy what I can find for it. Sure isn't a whole lot out there to pick from.
