Hi all,

Rev Mick, currently on mission in Spain, just retrieved my ageing VX800 from the UK via a mate in the back of his van. It's been in storage in a damp shed for 9 years, and needs much restoration..... 

.... amazingly and credit to the bike.... after a carb clean and degunk.... it started up on a car battery..... and idled just great!!!

It had been sprayed with WD every few years (!!!) so the exterior not toooo bad - however all unseen parts looked like they'd been under the ocean for a hundred years - crusty rust and cack all over.....

Well, I'll post some pics and questions another day...

Happy to be aboard!

Mick the Vic

Great to have you join us Vic. Another Newbie to say "Hi!" 1530558013
I will very much look forward to the pictures and the journey towards restoration. Sounds like a great project & wow she started so easily, that's a real credit to the beast & makes it all seem so much more of a viable project. Good that you sprayed the old girl randomly with WD40 as that would of made such a big difference to what you have to now work with.
