1983 Honda VT750C Shadow (Black)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Stock VT750C wheels in good shape, no scuffs or dents, Dunlop D404 on back with 2k on it. New D404F to match installed on the front !!!
Interior
Engine has creep leaks around cam seals, Trans is solid with a satifying Honda "clunk". Replaced clutch lever bushing with steel piece and moved clutch off of the grip about 1/2". Cam chain tensioner is suspect due to clatter, but timing and valves appear to be doing ok. Probably break them down next season. Carbs cleaned and sync'd, final drive and rear are all solid and smooth. Exhaust is beginning to show age on bottom end but still has nice thump and smooth acceleration notes
Exterior
All Stock and in need of a really deep cleaning. Needs left side cover as current is beat up badly and wont stay in place. Newly ordered Slip Stream S-02 Spirit Smoke Windshield on the way.
Audio
Could use some forks seals and rears, but that can wait a season or 2. Want to see how deep I might need to go with Top end work in a season or 2. Replaced Batt and Positive igntion lead, could use some woring cleanup on left side, added Batt tender quick connect. Replaced front signal stem and need 1 for rear. Also need emblem for back rest.
Suspension
Stock seat is mint condition, need new passenger pegs and need to replace cheepo highway pegs on Chrome engine gaurd. Also needs new grips to replace old foam. Saddle bags and back bag next season.
