    Default Looking for some Help

    Hey Guys,

    My name in Daniel, I'm a VTX owner and a Camera Assistant for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Tomorrow morning, Oct 2nd, we are surprising a north eastern Iowa family with a new home. Since we have not done this yet, I can not disclose the location or specific details. The family has two sons that want to build and Bikes, currently they have:

    1981 650 Kaw
    1982 Verago 920
    1980 KZ750

    None are running, I'll try to have more info on the conditions tomorrow. From the info that has been passed to me, the KV750 only needs a tune and clean up from sitting.

    What we are looking for is:
    - To get at least one of the bikes going and cleaned up
    - Parts for decoration
    - and Sat. the 8th we are have a Run for family (details to follow)

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, I'll have more details tomorrow.

    So, we are in West Union Building a Home for the Gibbs Family. Their Dad passed about 10yrs ago of cancer and the Mom is Legally blind.

    The Ideal situation would be for the Verago, a complete bike, to be running. Also if you have any parts that are decorative worthy we will be interest in those as well.

    If you are interested in help out, or have info that will help me out in my search please let me know.
