General Information

Shadow VT700, soon to be VT750
Candy Scorpio Red
Shiny, shiny Chrome.
It was purchased by a neighbor seven years ago where he then threw it into a shed to collect dust until I discovered it six years ago. I threw him a price, bought it, took it home where I dumped the cruddy six year old fuel and held it in my car port until I could pay to get the carbs cleaned.

One day I heard some scumbag had stolen a motorcycle, an '85 Shadow ironically, just down the road and I wanted to move it out of sight just in case, but the only way I could move it to the backyard was by starting it up. So I threw some good Ethanol-free fuel into it, cranked it, and to this day I have never needed those carburetors cleaned.

In mid-March 2016, I was out night riding when I was cut off by a car who pulled out right into the middle of street. There was no collision, but in my panic I slammed my shifter along with the breaks and doing so bent a shift fork, which I'm sure you all know means that it's basically a donor bike now.

I was hellbent on selling it, but my emotional attachment to the bike now has me looking for a whole new engine to put into the bike. So this 1984 Honda Shadow VT700 will soon be a 1984 Honda Shadow VT750.

Take that, early '80s Tax Laws!
