    1985 vmax for parts or repair

    For repair, will probably need new tranny. (History: 2nd gear popping, now its stuck in 1st, won't shift). Can't afford the necessary crankcase disassembly. Otherwise everything else was working great before this happened. $500 OBO. In San Diego, CA. Contact Keith 718 757 9499 for more details.
