    Question: Saw this craigslist ad for an 84 Sabre looked like a good deal but wanted your guys thoughts. Says it needs a new rear shock soon (he said that through text) if so how complicated is that and how much to replace? Is this a good deal for price and everything? Let me know...

    Hey guys, I know it's all the rage these days, but I am looking to getting into biking. I have been drooling over a bike on Craigslist that, as obvious from the title, is an '82 VF750S V45. It is in incredible condition, except the owner says that the carbs need rebuilt. I don't know much...

    Hi everyone, I live in Northern California and have been a V65 owner for close to 20 years. I love to tinker with my bike. It runs great and I use it a lot. Motorcycling is as close to heaven as one can get on this earth. I hope to make some acquaintances with V65 interests. I recently...

    The night before the trouble, I rode home uneventufully. Eight hours later, I go to ride it and there's NO electrical power. Not even enough to work the LCD gear display, which I gather takes almost no current. As I had somewhere to be, I roll-started it. Had to get it up to 20 MPH or so to...

    Well, I may of made a hasty decision when I purchased this bike. I didn't read up on the history of these hondas but it looked so clean and it had only 7.8k miles on it! It test drove nice and smooth and everything seemed ok. This is my first big bike purchase. I have just been doing vintage...

    I recently bought a 1982 Honda Sabre for a $100 as you can imagine for $100 its rough. The engine works, just needed a new rectifier. The bike would probably need torn down and put back together and repainted and some body parts replaced ie horn splitter, battery box, etc. What would this bike...

    Hello all, I bought an '84 Honda Sabre V65 about a month ago after riding a 49cc yamaha scooter around for a year (in order to save $$$ for the bike) and i LOVE it! it's got awesome power, sounds great, and it's good to finally be able to salute the other bikers on the road instead of being...

    Hi I just bought a Sabre 700, the bike is old, has about 23000 on it, but kept in relatively great shape. I already replaced the master cyclinder for the front brake and a gasket on the clutch's slave cylinder, it runs great and everything. Only problem is that I can't push it around, especially...

    I have an 1984 Honda Sabre and have been having some problems with the hydraulic clutch. The clutch was slipping, so I replaced the clutch spring which was broken. And now the clutch will not operate correctly. The clutch doesn't want to release. I've read the manual, and it says that when...
