I have learned more from this bike than I did my Shadow. Somehow it means more that I fixed it than if someone else did it.my vintage bike is a 82 1100 suzuki. my modern bike is a 1500 vulcan. yes, I do spend more time working on the suzuki than I do the vulcan and riding it less than the vulcan but thats the price you pay for keeping an old bike going (unless you just think of it as a beater). I really enjoy having and working on what I consider a classic.
Since I got it running, I haven't seen much of it, my middle son and his wife have it for when they go camping / fishing... overall the bike is functional - but it does still need some work - especially the steering head bearings. I've already replaced the chain / sprockets, wheel bearings, cleaned / rebuilt the carb, installed new tires and more...How's that KV coming along, Jeff ?
