Guru Wanted South Western CT.
 
I have had previous experience with small engines, VW 70-80's and as a driver numerous military vehicles primarily HMMWV. I bought an inexpensive starter bike (vt750c 83') which I assume needs rebuilding in multiple areas. I have always shied away from short blocks, trans and heads. This is not from lack of understanding or attention to detail. I have not done it and would like to further get my hands on the engine other than a cursory knowledge. I am willing to travel evening and weekends. I am currently enrolled in another program of studies so an actual school is not an option, more a shot in the dark. -JD

These old bikes were built to last forever. Compression, spark and fuel is all you need. Get a copy of the service manual and have fun!

If you can get it running fairly well I would just ride it till you get tired of it and want to trade up. It is getting hard to find parts for our old machines and many projects just get pushed into a corner because of the frustration of getting new parts. Here is a link to the service manual for your bike that the good folks here have provided.
And as I always say= " Study the manual because there WILL be a test".
