Good looking ride.
Is that a pearlescent white paint?
Yes sir! Took allot of buffing and polishing to get it looking new again, but I really like it!

My latest addition. My wife asked me how long I was going to keep this one.Not sure yet but very nice bike and with only 7800 miles on it I might have it for awhile.

And this one is with the new windshield on it

Other than a couple little pieces I still need to locate (still on the hunt for a chrome left side cover), it's all dressed up and ready for the road! Started the teardown on 12/23/17, and several various fits and starts later, I finally got it where I'm happy with it. Even scored a NOS highway bar to replace the well-weathered original.

Pictures from the first real ride I had on the 1983 vt750. 160 miles in one day. Cruised on classic Rt. 66. I met up with some buddys who recently bought dual sports. It was a great time. It’s a big change from
Having the engine on the garage floor about two months ago. I love the bike so far.

Well, I was officially compromised, as Sergeant-Major, my work colleague captured me on his tail-cam. (an actual veteran of the polish army from a certain modern war theatre, a rough, but likable sort, though only I can stomach him in the office XD I like the way he thinks, and I was kinda raised amongst soldiers, so we are good friends. He owns a korean V engine 125cc classic cruiser, almost the same size as my Shadow. Even the sound isn't so bad, just not the fastest machine)

So, this is me, on my way home from work around 06:30 AM :D 15 minutes away from my beer and (tobacco) hookah.

Not my Shadow, but I snuck my VTX out to the helipad at work!

Flashback:

Took a little ride down to Kiawah, SC today, and then by Angel Oak.

Angel Oak from Wiki:
Angel Oak is a Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana) located in Angel Oak Park on Johns Island near Charleston, South Carolina. The tree is estimated to be 400-500 years old.[1] It stands 66.5 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet (1,600 m2). Its longest branch distance is 187 ft[2] in length. Angel Oak was the 210th tree to be registered with the Live Oak Society.
Noticed that All-State Insurance has a commercial featuring the Angel Oak.


As you can tell, my photos didn’t do the tree justice.

It had been a busy week and I had not been on the bike, the sun was getting low so a ride out to the coast to watch the sun set was the plan :D
