I'm just getting into Shadows. Found an '86 VT500C for $600.00 and figured I might need a little help getting her up and running!:mrgreen:

I got it home and took the trailer back late last night. Looking at it, it looks pretty good for it's age. I'll get some pictures posted as soon as I can. The only body damage I've seen is a dent in the right side fuel tank. Looks like a ball-peen hammer hit it right on the right side top curve of the tank. And of course it is showing it's age and needs a good cleaning.
It's not running at them moment, it'll start and idle but if you try to throttle it up or touch the choke it dies. I'm going to build the cards and see if that fixes it. I think it sat for a while and got gummed up.
