I figure toss my project bike in the mix. 84 VT700c There no major mods to the bike, it's 99% original setup. The only changes to the bike are turnout mufflers, larger jets, paint, and reupholstered original seats. Everything else is OEM standards and I plan to keep it that way.

Here is my 84 VT700C. The bike started as a beat up rusted project bike in pieces that wasn't abel to start. During the restoration the only changes made to it are
Paint
Slip on turnouts mufflers
Rejettet
Everything else on the bike is original spec.
