I have been traveling to Rexburg for school 5 days a week and usually at least three times in my truck which gets 12-13 miles per gallon. I decided to buy me a road bike for the summer to help save on gas. I had been looking for almost two months when I finally decided I was going to have to save some more money because I just couldn't find anything good for around 1500 dollars. Then one day when I got out of my class I happened to find this beautiful charmer.
I found it on craigslist and they were asking 1200 O.B.O. It was in Twin Falls so I offered him 1000 and he said yes. So I asked him if he would hold it for me while I came to get it since I live in Idaho Falls and again he said Yes. I could hardly believe it. It is a 2002 Honda Shadow VLX Deluxe VT600CD, it has 12,480 miles on it and of course as you can see it is PINK!!!
Which I didn't think was too bad until the other day I pulled up behind some other biker dudes and well lets just say it was kind of embarassing, but for 1000 dollars I couldn't pass up the deal. So this is what happened!
This is what my parts began to look like after I sanded and primed them.
