Brand new to this bunch, just picked up an ol' 83 VT750C with a few issues.
I am going to try to learn as much as I can about bringing 'er around and then take the plunge.
I was told that there were cam chain wearing problems with these early beasts and that generally they weren't worth the effort to send out for repairs.
Being a handy kind of guy, I find some projects downright stimulating, but then again I've been known to flog a dead horse some.
I bought it cheap knowing it would need a headgasket in the front.
It blows a little white on that cylinder on startup and pops for a bit.
The tac doesn't work, and it idles really high sometimes all by itself.
The idle problem is probably just a cable lube thing.(or replacement)
Anyway, it's great to be here and I hope bring as much as I take.
Take care all and keep the rubber side down. KD
