VN900 wanted in So Cal for parts fitment

Looking for a VN900, prefer in the North OC area for a suspension fitment project. Need to borrow the bike for a week or so to measure and test fit new shock and fork springs, but will return it with new parts!

Interested?

LOL, Jace. That's a long ride in the winter.
My guess is that yes, this is for real. I used to work for a company that would to the same thing, but for a donor's car. The email address appears to be genuine. Still, make sure what you're doing.

Yep, real deal guys. We can't buy every single bike, so fairly often, we'll borrow for a bit to sort measurements and run your stock shock on our dyno to gain a baseline damping cuve.

Also looking for a VN2000 amongst others

This must indicate that proper suspension components; shocks, springs, and emulators are forth coming for the VN900. Please let this be true!

Any time line?

Straight south to texas and then straight west. Once I get past iowa, it would be great.

That's a long ride... I'm pretty sure I can make the ride home smoother! really best if I can find someone in So Cal, though.

Anyone?

When are you wanting it? I am currently stationed in Monterey at NPS and my quarter ends a week from Monday. I will have until January 5th off so I won't really need the bike because I can just use my wife's car. I would just have to figure out how to get myself back and forth to your location after I drop of the bike and when I go back to pick it up. That would be a long drive for my wife (and 3 little girls) to make each time.
