    Hey guys,

    My name is Bill, and grew up in Carver, MN. I started working on cars when I was just a little guy with my dad, and in 2007 at the age of 24, I started attending Minnesota State University, Mankato, majoring in Automotive Engineering Technology. At the same time that I started school, I began working at a motorcycle sales/parts outfit in Jordan, MN called Sport Wheels. I started by restoring old bikes, and have since gotten more into motorcycles than cars.

    I currently own 2 bikes, both 1986 Hondas. A VF500F Interceptor, and a VF1000R Interceptor. I've got a 1987 VW jetta GLI (16v, all stock)and a 1992 Acura Integra GS-R (modified). I have built a Yamaha XS650 Street Tracker, Triumph Flat Tracker, and other various vintage bikes (Hondas and Bultacos). I am just beginning a Cafe build on another XS650. I'm just a gearhead all around.

    The place that I work, Sport Wheels, is having a 40th Anneversary Bike Show and Ride on June 25, 2011. I believe that there are a couple of guys here who have come in to Sport Wheels when they were building their bikes.

    We have a 10 acre operatioin here, and I have become pretty well acostomed to what we have in terms of VF/VFRs, and general interesting stuff. Let me know if anybody needs anything, and I'll look around and see if I can find it.

    Bill

    Love Sport Wheels. I tried to stop by last month on my way through MN but had a misunderstanding with my Garmin.

    Hey Bill,
    I have an '02 vfr w/abs and am looking for an open air temp sensor. Not super important, it only tells me the ambient temps, but have looked into other places and can't find one for under $60. If you happen to have one of those around, let me know. Thanks a lot and have a good one

    VFR w/ABS

    Hey ILoveMountains,

    Unfortunately, we don't have any of the newer ABS model VFR's for parts. We have lots of the 1st and 2nd Gen parts, and a few 3rd and 4th gen parts.
