Well, I have come to the end of the road of trying to rebuild my Gen 1 VMAX. There was more wrong with it than just the 2nd gear, and I can't justify spending all the money on the parts and time to fix it. So I am parting the bike out. The bike is completely disassembled, including the engine, and was done professionally. 90% of the bike and parts are in good condition and worth a look for anyone needing parts. I will have pics of the parts and a list in a week or so, but if anyone has any questions or is in need of any parts sooner, let me know. I am saddened by this lose. It was going to be a cool rebuild project. But I have every intention of getting another one to complete my vision. As most everyone on this forum knows, these bikes are one of a kind. Ride safe everyone.
