Well, those of you that remember me from months back may recall I put together an 84 VT750c from a pile of parts. Then I found the '83 VT750 that needed some work. Well, I'm happy to report both bikes ran flawlessly all summer long. I put about 3,000 miles on each of them over the summer. between the two I have about $1,200 invested including new tires, battery and other misc. parts. So I'd have to say I'm quite happy to be riding two bikes for just over a grand total investment. If course some labor, bleeding and cussing were also invested in getting them both road worthy. I'd have to say advice I got from here was the biggest reason I got so much riding in on two bikes over the summer.
