Yes, all Vx's are project bikes of a sort. My project is to keep it running as long as possible for close to the minimum cost: the occasional extravagance adds to the time I will have to keep it. Why fit a new screen (or similar) then sell the bike? There doesn't seem to be a definite finishing point with long term owned and ridden bikes, just an evolution, generally replacements and improvements. Personally I like it when someone either restores to factory standard, or does something radical and cut down; the middle way of adding more and more chromed accessories, as epitomised by Harleys, is a bit sad really.
