Hello everyone,
I own a 84 Ascot VT500. I'm on here to learn about maintenance, repairs and possibly some mods. Oh, I also live in Oregon.

Hey Joe, Welcome!

By any chance are you aware of the Yahoo VT500 Ascot Owners Group?
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ascotvt500enthusiasts/info
That is another huge Ascot knowledge base to be part of.

My first Ascot was a black '84 VT500FT. I bought it in the late 80's with only 5,2XX miles on it. I rode that bike a lot & really liked the bike! I regret selling it. I have another one now, but its not near as nice as the first was.

This forum & the Yahoo Ascot Owners Group are about the only sources of info that I know of on the bikes. There are some individual web-sites that are devoted to the Ascot here & there on the I'net for the searching that are good. You should pick up a service manual as soon as you can. That will be the best source of hard info. Congratulations on owning what I think is one of Honda's best looking bikes. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Good luck
J.
