Project Vulcan Bagger

Traded the Green Hornet '96 VLX Chopper/Bobber for a '93 1500 Vulcan...



Clutch is slipping but it is obvious that there was some moisture in the fluid. Going to flush it and replace with DOT 5 this afternoon.

Right now only plans are to add hard bags and a radio so I can have some cruising tunes. May eventually add a bat wing faring, but the fairing that is on it gives it a pretty mean look. I LOVE the look of the tall risers and drag bars. I was going to put my chrome drag bars on it, but the guy that I traded the bike to came by my office and he said he really wasn't a fan of the apes I have on the Green Hornet so I am going to trade him my chrome drag bars for the apes.

Rode the Vulcan to work this morning and other than the clutch issue, I love the bike. I think it is going to make for a good over the road and trip bike for me and my son.

BTW...the Shadow is going now where! As a matter of fact, if I can make this one look good enough in an affordable way, I may try to post it up on CL to trade for a VTX.

Live long and prosper!

And a beverage holder to boot. LOL Looks good BE. Best of luck with it as I am sure you'll have it the way you want it in no time.

That was the pic the guy sent me to see for the trade, beverage holder wasn't on it...I feel cheated!

Flushed the clutch fluid and not a complete help...better, but not fixed.

I feel like I'm trying to learn a new language, I know my Shadow like the back of my hand or where to find the answers. Feeks like a noob again with this bike. Got some work to do on her, but my local shop down the road owes me a favor, going to go see if they will take a look at it and tell me what all they think needs to be done.

Congrats. I have a vulcan nomad 1700 and love that bike. I still won't get rid of my shadow though. Keep us updated on the progress.
