play to the bikes strengths and keep it as a muscle-bike/cruiser.
service it and ride the wheels off of it or sell it.
Trying to make it a "café racer" will only make it ride like crap and look even worse

Hey guys I just got a free bike and wanted some insight on how a cafe racer conversion may go or look.
The bike is a Honda v45 Magna, thats a 750cc. Shaft Driven and liquid cooled. I am having a hard time finding any builds towards cafe racer. Plenty of guys make sick bobbers from these. Can any of you point me in the right direction as far as builds, engine replacement parts, wiring harness, and diagrams go?
here is a link to the photo https://imgur.com/a/l2sJg
how does the bike run ?goes down the road stops,starts runs smooth good compression all that stuff?
that picture you linked of a junk bike at the scrapyard is ,like,an early april's fool joke
unless you have unlimited time and money and are familiar with v-4 hondas and actually enjoying pissing away money...srsly that honda in that condition its going to need everything replaced ..unbolt the kickstand ..hold it in your hand and go buy everything else
don't, good grief are you a moron ? it is obvious you have zero experience with motor vehicles
but are you capable of absorbing advice to steer you down a better road ?
i had always thought the cb900c honda the worst bike to modify but a v4 honda shafty ?they are actually a good motorcycle if maintained carefully ,used as intended and not modified in any way that involves engine or carburetor work
but in that condiotion ?$3000 easy, in parts to get it roadworthy
what is your experience to date relating to anything motorcycle?
just trying to help dont get an old water cooled bike to fix up.period
i dont care if you have zero experience or not..but there is no way anybody can advise an unkown..is there ?
How much experience riding and or wrenching do you have?
Faaark....run away from this:
Seriously, that thing is fucked. Not only is it in it's proper place right now (the scap pile), some douchebag has molested the life out of it in an attempt to make a "cafe racer".
Just run away....
