I am looking around for a cheap motorcycle and came across a 1986 Honda shadow 750 VT for $300. It is a project that two guys were working on and I guess ran out of time or money. Anyway it says that it needs a battery, clutch cable, and throttle cable. Is there any way of checking if the bike even runs or has potential to run without the two? I'm willing to fix one up but I don't know if it would even be worth fixing. It is on craigslist under for sale and motorcycles in Austin Texas.
