History
Bought in 2017. 20,000 miles. Original color was red.
Did some remodeling on my 86 vt700c over the winter of 2019. It all started when I took it into my friends shop to replace the front for seals. This is what happened next.
  • Carbs rebuilt (torn diaphragms)
  • Tank and fenders powder coated purple
  • Seats reupholstered in a marbled gray and purple
  • Purple clutch and brake levers (clutch and brakes bled as well)
  • New foam hand grips
  • Chrome Stebel Nautilus dual tone trumpet super loud air horn
  • 10 mm chrome bullet turn signal with running light
  • New rear shocks
  • Highway bars (found in the U.K.)
  • Chrome radiator cover (U.K.)
  • Kuryakyn foot pegs
  • Cigarette Lighter Dual USB Power Socket Charger
  • Signal Dynamics headlight module, brake light module, license plate frame w/led brake and turn signals, dual load equalizer
  • Sound off recreational vista cruise throttle lock for dual throttle cable
  • Slipstreamer smoke windshield
Bought the bike in 2017 from a young college student who was the 2nd owner. It had 20,000 miles on it and was in fairly good shape. Just needed a little TLC and added details to fit my taste and needs. Saddle bags came with it so I installed them. Added windshield next. I I have 130 pictures of the process. Here are a few. Hope you like it.
