Can you give us a rundown of why you replaced the VX and what you miss about her (or what you don't miss)?

Actually, it was a pretty good bike. It didn't suffer too much from the rear hub spline problem and I kept it lubed. Carbs were really finicky though. Replaced both brake rotors and brake lines with braided. Replaced pads with EBC HH and a fork brace. That battery was sure expensive! Had the factory rear rack(not in the pictures). I was looking for something a bit older, chrome fenders, air cooled. Here's an older picture.
