What do you guys think of the 1984 Honda Shadow VT700? Good? Reliable? Anything odd I should be aware of when looking at one to buy?

Thanks!

I don't know what these guys think, but I just traded for a 85 VT 700 and rode it about 70 miles yesterday with no problems.

84 Shadow 700... GREAT bike. From all I've heard , very reliable! Nice lines on that bike too! I have an 84 Shadow 500 and a 2001 750 Shadow ACE. Would love to get my hands on an mid 80's Shadow 700 or 750!! Good choice! :D ( but then I'm not totally unbiased toward the Shadow line...lol)

I traded an 86 VT 500c for the 700. The 500 was a great bike if the 700 is half as good I'll be happy.

The 83-85 500s and 700/750s make excellent modding platforms. Lots of parts available! Plus classic cruiser styling. x10

I hate to be a downer but...the Honda shops around here won't even look at a bike over 20 yrs. old. If you fix or know someone who does go for it. I'd be stuck..I would love to get an older Honda.

Yeah! I went ahead and got it. It's pretty awesome. :D I've been smiling ever since.

I don't like the handlebars so much, but I am pretty sure they can be changed. :D

A few months ago I sold my 1983 Shadow VF750. In 1984 because of import taxes they went to the 700. I thought it was a wonderful bike.
In fact, as the new 750's are so different, I got a 2006 Vulcan 750 which is essentially the same as my old Honda 750.
Hondas are excellent.

just bought an 85 honda shadow vt700 today and i love it too. have been riding it every chance i can. i dont quite agree on not liking the handle bars. i love how they look and how comfortable they are. great bike, reliable, fun, and pretty damn quick for a 700.
