Just registered on this site in an effort to connect with others who might lead me on a path to a successfu restoration.
I just returned from South Florida with my 1972 Victor 500 in the bed of my pickup. It had been there since I relocated to Mississippi in 1983. It was garage kept for a while then in a shed but has been outside for way too long so its in pretty nasty shape.
I probably wont get started until next year but would welcome any statrup guidance that anyone is willing to share.. Procedures, sources for parts, sources for rework of exisiting parts, decals, paint, etc. etc.

Thanks,
Don

Hi Don, im kinda new here as well but welcome anyway! I just joined because I got a 71' B50SS which I believe is pretty similar to your bike. Of the five or six models my manual covers, the Victor 500 is one of them.

If im right, then this is a good resource site: http://www.b50.org/

welcome Don,
I did a complete overhaul of my 71 B50SS. I found it as a basket case but came out nice and runs well. I retore to ride not to show so I don't have an immaculate frame it does show wear and tear, but it's the real deal of big singles. You can't go wrong using Ed V (E&V Engineering)of this site for head, crank or cylinder work and this forum has will provide any info you need. Get a perts book and a shop manual and have at it.

Mr Mike

Hi Don,

the Rupert Ratio unit single engine manual ( Panther Publishing ) is an excellent source of information.
These are great bikes!
