Little Update

Well, not much forward momentum on Vixen. There do seem to be some inexpensive parts bikes out there. With my recent move and my daughter starting her second year of college, money is exceedingly tight.

An interesting little thing I did learn from the VX800 e-mail list was that there are likely less than 10,000 VX800s on the globe. That may seem like a lot, but in the grander scheme, it really isn't.

According to some statistics at there are roughly 204,100,000 motorcycles in the world. So, on average there are 20,410 motorcycles for every VX800. Given that the VX was sold in the United States for only a few years does indeed skew the numbers.

What does this boil down to? Well, there just aren't many VX800s around anywhere.
