Hello from Virginia,My son just purchased his first bike,1984 VT500C,he is active duty in the USCG in NC. and doesn't have a garage to work on the bike so that is my job,which I love rebuilding things,cars,tractors,jetski's,4x4's,you name it I will rebuild it.Bought the bike not noing if it ran or not,I assumed it didn't,but for a 30 year old bike it is in great condition ,would give it a 9 out of 10 on looks alone.Has 13000 miles.Got it home last weekend,fixed a fuel leak in main fuel line and tried to start it up,ran only on rear cylinder.Compression check showed 165 on rear and 0 in front.Thats when I started reading all of yalls post,great help.Downloaded shop manual and pulled it down.Well it has a hole in the piston.Other than that motor looks real nice and clean.Will be looking for parts and will look forward to some help and advice from all.Will post some pics of rebuild as I go.Thanks in advance. JB
