Hi, I'm Bart from Allentown, PA. Found this 1896 VT700 Shadow on eBay in April this year. Needed carb work, but otherwise in beautiful condition. Rode a lot in the past, but got interested again recently and found the Shadow I'd dreamed of! Once the carb issues were resolved it's been a GREAT ride!! Thanks to all the posts that help each other out! Learning a lot here and am grateful for all the tips and responses! Been trying all afternoon to get a photo of my bike uploaded, but so far to no avail. Any suggestions out there??
