Sorry about that, I wasnt clear at all. Is much rather have one stock, or close. Structurally stock at least. And I'm a horribly cheap bastard so you answered my question anyway. TY. I mean I'm all for a well done full custom, but not to a v65, aside from a couple bolt ons like maybe hard bags and a seat (simple things) there's not much of want to do to one anyway

Hard to give information on the limited description you posted.

1. What is the end result you want to accomplish?

2. Depending on the price and what you want to do, may be best to find another bike.

If it were me and I want a V65 in mostly original shape to ride, if I was given this bike I would not take it other than for parts. A lot of money can be spent quickly and time spent to bring this up to shape, than again I don't know your situation.
The Garage / V65 bobber

So I've found a pretty good deal on a V65 I'm thinking about. The bad thing is some bobbed it out and like most bobbers that are priced reasonable there's "questionable" work done. Ok instead of being polite ill be accurate. I'm not sure I'd trust this hack job to get me home safely to fix it. I'm talking bad... Steel struts welded to the shock mounts to hard tail it, frame doesn't even look like it was cut straight behind the saddle much less braced to maintain the strength just for the short list. Anyone know how hard it is to find a good frame and body work for the tail to get it back half ads right or would I be better off with a full aftermarket frame which kinda kills the point of a v65?
Great to hear and look forward seeing you again!
Hey Terry,
4 months from being fully recovered from my 2nd hip replacement and doing great.  Planning to pick up the 2014 on Saturday 7/14, narrowed it down to 2 at this point.  Looking forward to riding with ya'll again.
Haven't heard from you in a while, how are you doing?

Do you already have your Valkyrie? 
The Garage / 1986 V65 Magna clutch fluid leak
« Last post by Huggybear56 on July 02, 2018, 06:31:04 PM »
Hi all ... my first post.  In March I bought an 86 V65 Magna with 18k original miles, original paint, original chrome, a bike in very good appearance condition.  rode it a couple of times on less than 10 mile runs when I realized there were serious brake issues.  so I started working on it.  It runs well ; a little carb spitting but some Seafoam should help that.  a couple days ago I squeezed the clutch ... no fluid.  no puddle under the bike either.  My question ... after studying the shop manual and reading a few posts ... can the slave cylinder leak its fluid past the pushrod seal into the crankcase ?  I am currently rebuilding all the brakes ... then I'll tackle the clutch problem.  Any advice from those with experience is appreciated. 
7/15 Update - the parts bike is sold, along with the spare tire and jacket, so only the nicer bike and hydraulic lift remain. $2900 
7/11 Update – Picking up the Valkyrie on Saturday, so....     
Price for both bikes reduced to $3250 (see terms below), or I’ll sell the ’98 parts bike for $500 (I have two interested parties) and the rest for $3000.  I sold the jacket yesterday.
