Awesome Bobbed '80 VN750!!

Anyone know this bike? Just stumbled upon it online. I've never seen it before. Alemany or thedogatehim on this site?

Love the passenger pillion and the super bobbed rear. Totally what I have in mind for mine, which is why I am looking at the Goldwing for 2-up riding.

It's not an '80 VN750 they just didn't make them quite yet. Might be an '85 700 with that blacked out motor or a '86+ 750 w/ motor painted black????

That's cool looking. I wonder why he thinks its an 80 model? It looks like the engine of a 85 VN700 to me. The seat to bar length looks like my short arms would be reaching a fur piece.

How well does a bike like that handle twisty roads? Or is it for another type of riding?

It looks like it would be a real bone breaker to ride. Take a close look at the close up pic of the leather seat, then scroll to the bottom of the page. Notice that it was custom made for his favorite bondsman !! LOL I guess there are folks from all walks of life who love the vn750.

Anyone know how to get this "bare metal" look finish? Just clearcoat over cleaned and textured steel?

And yeah, it would kill my back. No shocks (he put solid struts where they were) and almost no spring if any in that seat... it would make my back resemble a pixie stick in about a week!
