The bike was sadly sold. Thanks Mike, did not get the 4k though. A few days later the bike was in a dream. What did I do?

Bought in new in crate in 1995. It has been good to me, zero incidents. Would prefer to sell to someone who appreciates this fine motorcycle. Runs perfect, looks close to perfect, exhaust pipes even have no bluing. I am in the San Francisco bay area where it is listed on craigslist. Have to sell to make room in the garage, would keep it forever if I had the room. Replies with any recommendation on selling price is appreciated, thanks fellow vx800 enthusiasts. Here is the link

In all honesty I think the bike would be worth say $4k, maybe. For a pristine example....
Ever thought about contacting Barber Museum? Or any museum?

YMMV

Buy, Sell or Trade / What shuold I do??
« Last post by FrstBikeVX800 on February 20, 2018, 06:56:10 PM »
Hi guys!  Long time. Sad.

So I have a 1992 vx800  with a vs 700 boulavard engine, also everything from wrecked a 91 except the front fork chassis.

I'm at a loss. I loved this bike when I was riding it and I reallyd like to be te one to rebuild it . I goofed. the heat sensor/oil low relay melted to the pipes and I rode 100km on no oil.   It seized. I really dreamed of rebuilding but life, and money and prospects. I'm trying to start a new business and all the parts are taking up a lot of space...

the 92' is fully stripped down to the frame. everything is bagged and tagged and photos taken of the tear down. the 91 frame has had the engine pulled.

I was going to merge the bikes. I wanted to use all the chrome from the vs and add it to the vx engine.
the reason I stopped is a very expesive specailty tool needed for getting into the crank case.

I know Its a nightmare puzzle to pass on a project. but I was wondering what I should do. Id be sad to part it out, and really if I could find some one who rebuilds and give it away for first right of purchase or something.


What should I do????  part it out? who rebuilds? referances and contacts? ahhh so saddd!

chrs  and thx.

about the dented tank... look up dent removal on you tube..... sometimes a heat gun and canned air is enough, or, maybe a dent puller with hot melt glue gun.   It doesnt look creased, so its should be mostly fixable.

lots of ideas on ebay....

Nice work fella,

I've had mine for 3 years now and like you haven't been able to ride it. I just recently got it all together and through it's roadworthy test and can assure you it has been worth the wait. You're doing a much better job on the restoration front than I am though.

Good luck :)

Ade.
