1984 Honda VT500 ED Spares or Repair For Sale
Description 1984 Honda VT500 ED Spares or Repair
Bought a year ago when it needed lots of TLC.
Lots of TLC later the bike passed the MOT (April 3 2016) the only advisory being "slight travel on brake lever".
I replaced the brake hose to improve the brake action and replaced the back tyre.
Shortly after doing this work an already noisy engine (50,000 hard miles by the look of it), developed a noise which sounds "top endy" to me (but what do I know?).
When the noise is there, it has gone away a couple of times, it sounds bad enough to put me off using the bike and possibly ruining engine completely. To investigate this noise requires a strip down which is beyond my ability and beyond my wallet to get done, so the bike is reluctantly "spares or repair".
Stainless exhaust looked new/unused when bike purchased.
New back tyre
New brake hose
Master cylinder seals replaced
Fork seals replaced
Fuel tank replaced (dented but sound)
Tacho drive seal replaced
Spare front forks (spares or repair)
Plastic covers all available but some off-bike.
As always viewing/hearing(!) is recommended .
Cash on collection.
