Hello all,
My name is Alex, a relatively new rider. (2yr) Gas prices forced me onto a motorbike and I'm so happy I made that decision, riding is the ultimate experience.

My first, and current bike is a 1983 VT750c vin#72
I liked the vintage cruiser look

Have come to this site numerous times for help. Thought it was time to join the squad

-Bought it at 49k, had HORRIBLE knock that would only get worse.
-Bought spare engine shorty after
-Replaced original engine at 57k. Literally rode the piss out of the orig, was using a quart every 200 or so miles :
air cleaner was not cleaning any air for god knows how long.....:roll:(carbs toast)
-Have been undoing all PO crappy caveman style "repairs and service " since
- just need to go back to a un-hackled factory exhaust with baffles for final touch

-used to have all sorts of electrical gremlins till I became so enraged and hacked the harness apart.
Soldered each connection, cleaned all switches, shrink wrapped all wires, direct feed to coils/cdi and no issues ever since

One more welcome from the peanut gallery :D

You`ll be helpful in the tech forum with your "robotic" mechanic ability ;)

Merry Christmas
