I spotted this 1984 vt500ft Ascot on Craig's list and the price was too good to pass up and only 3 1/2 hours away, So I called up the gentleman on Friday and by Saturday it on my trailer pulled by my trusty 92 Isuzu Trooper heading back home. 12000 miles on the clock and the only parts that were missing was the turn signals Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Car Motor vehicle
(not required in that state) and a mirror.

Same as my '84 V65 Sabre - looks pretty good until you get up close. After 34 years, they're allowed to look less than new... and I'm not going to bother with mine, it'll sell one day when I can't handle the weight anymore. You won't have that problem, those things are very cool. If my Dad had been happy enough with his, I'd have it now - but he didn't like the seat height, so it got sold. Couldn't blame him, they are a bit tall. His was a little rough too

I have noticed a common problem with the turn signals falling off when the rubber stem rots, no problem I have some nice(no rubber) replacements that have a similar look, I'm looking forward to taking it out on the parkway (https://www.blueridgeparkway.org/about-the-parkway/) when the weather warms up.
