Hi:

I'm a newbie here and just recently acquired a neglected VT500FT. Not exactly a Shadow but shares architecture and many parts and with the VT500 shadows.

With some searching, I've already found lots of overlap, and looking forward to finding lots more :mrgreen:

Hi guys:

Thanks for the welcome.

Will post a pix, but gee wiz, give me a few days to polish the old tart up :wink:

Actually, I've done lots of polishing, now I'm looking for some missing/thrashed bits so I'll post a pic soon. It's getting there - slowly.:shock:

Any other Vancouver early eighties VT500 owners out there? I have lots of questions, would like to get together to discuss. Let me know.

Stop the continued neglect and post up some pics of that poor bike already.

Hello vancouverite! which Vancouver are you in? BC or AC?

Ya sorry, it's a 84 VT500FT Ascot. After some more online searching, I think it is technically a Shadow - at least some online parts fiches refer to the VT500FT as a shadow.

This isn't mine, but it looks like this one (it'll be a while before mine looks like that one):


I'm just about ready to post a pix of mine - just a few more parts, just a few more....:wink:
