Bought the 06 in the Nashville CL today---

The owner called me this morning and said it was still for sale, so I loaded up and headed to Florence Ala., it looked good so we dealt, and it is here in Clyde's stall ready to be gone over a bit more and registered and rode...
It had quite a bit of extras, windshield, Corbin seat w/back rest, foot boards, frok brace, fancy grips, sharper mirrors, tank strap, and small Saddleman saddle bags which I replaced with my bigger bags...
Anyway the bike looked good and only had 6,100 mi. on the odometer...
I guess we will see if I have replaced Clyde...lol...
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...

I' glad to hear that you were able to stay with the VN750! I don't see how anyone could be happy with another medium cruiser once they've owned a VN750! I saw that ad and it looks like a nice one too...Way to go Dog!

2003
Name: "Bike"
*Battery connected at both ends!
*Real air in the tires
*New Registration sticker
*Seat wiped off
*Low AND Hi beam headlight!
*New #1157 tail light bulb
*Brake pedal still on the right
*Custom valve stem caps made from black plastic!
*Custom built ignition key from Kawasaki
Does anybody really care?

THAT IS GOOD NEWS. I too looked at all cruisers and could find none that I liked better than the VN750. I found a 05, low miles, and just like new, even the little rubber parts are soft like new. Starts, runs , looks, and rides like brand new. I am sure you are going to be happy with ?? Clyde Jr ?

57 years experience,Zero accidents. Starting with 1947 Indian Chief. Now VN750 , V65 Magna, Burgman scooter.

Dave, if none of my local riding buddies want them (which I think they all have saddle bags) and shipping don't eat us up you can have them...
They seem to be nice and in good shape, just too small to hold much...
Oh, one more thing, they don't have the center cross over part, they bolt on via the bolts in the saddle bag struts...
