    83 Honda Shadow 750c

    So, I've had this project for quite some time. I've ridden it for ~400mi, it was amazing! Best bike I've ever ridden compared to the other cruisers I've ridden, 90s Vulcan 700, 2000s HD 883 Sporter(my moms), I've had a few other bikes a few sports bikes and a standard bike, I've loved them all in their own way, as I'm sure all of you can relate. I ran out of time to tinker with it and its been sitting in my moms garage in Sunbury for quite some time. It developed a back fire and is lacking power, i've had it running a few times and put about another 100mi on it. I bought all of it from some guy who was an 80s shadow enthusiast and his wife said his shed of shadow stuff had to go. The 750 has a black powdercoated frame and factory paint scheme with factory decals on the body parts. The one in the picture is complete and is the one that I have ridden There is another frame that has a motor, a 700 not a 750, suspension and most of the main components installed that I started putting together once I had the other running great, the motor turns over but never had it running. I have titles for both and a lot of extra parts. Also I now live in NC so I'm looking to sell everything as a package $1000 or trade for a 500cc street bike. My first bike was an 89 Suzuki GS500e, I miss it dearly, so something comparable would be cool. Eventually I would like to build my own electric bike so a full fairing bike would be cool as long as it's around 500cc. Thanks all!

    Fuel Economy

    I am currently bikeless(running that is...) I always got a few more mpg using high octane 90+ helps keep em running clean too! 20cents per gal or more on 5 or so gals isnt gonna kill my wallet. 89 GS500 45-50mpg 03 CBR600F4i 38-44mpg 83 VT750 50-52mpg I need to build a diesel and get 100+mpg like these guys!! http://www.dieselbike.net/ tho some are just single cyl diesel engines with a Torque Converter/CVT cruising at 50-60mph getting 100+mpg sound great to me!! Here is the ultimate build: http://www.suckindiesel.com/?page_id=2061 Triumph Tiger + Turbo Diesel Smart Car 0.8litre engine = $15,000 100+mpg! Military has had these for awhile, supposedly releasing a "civilian" model, basically the same 667cc single cyl diesel engine on a KLR 600 frame. Claim 135mpg!!! $TBD...

    6x8 enclosed trailer - $850

    it WILL make someone a great motorcycle transport trailer!!! Uhauls 5x8 weigh 900lbs, i would be happy with that. some of the random enclosed trailer makers claim ~890lbs for their 5x8 with single barn door. i found a couple i'll be calling tmw from CL. the element is awd that may have something to do with its towing capacity.
