Pics of my 94 with new Jardines and Mustang

So I am almost done adding stuff to the Vulcan. Here's what I've done so far:

Kury Iso Grips
Kury wide blade levers
MF Battery
Floorboards (KM style)
Chrome mirrors with risers
Chrome coolant res cover
ME880 Tire in front (rear soon to follow)
Engine guard
Mustang seat
Pro-Tac backrest
Jardine pipes

The Jardines sound amazing at an idle, and I actually have far less popping on decel than I did with the stock pipes degoated. There must have been some air leaks I didn't catch before. The new pipes are very load on the road, however, so that's going to take some getting used to. It turned more heads today after the new pipes were installed than the past 2 years combined and sounds great regardless. I only had to make a few minor adjustments to the mix screws and the idle screw. Aside from the engine guard and res cover, each of the add ons has made the ride better in one aspect or another. I never thought I would be so happy with the Vulcan!

Very nice. Somebody here described his bike as a 50 foot bike when he got it, ie. it looked good at 50 feet. Some are 20 or 10 foot bikes. I say this is a 3 foot bike, because it looks good from as close as you can get, and still see all of it.

I believe the mod I envy most is the seat and backrest. Keep the shiny side up.

looks great! I like seat, grips and mirrors. I think I prefer the side covers painted though but like the coolant cover .
anyone know how to restore the shine to the footpeg supports and the side bar on the seat, are they buffable? mine have gotten dull unlike the ones on this bike!
Oh yeah, the pipes. similar to my sportster pipes but I like the way those are cut to the side of the bike verses mine exiting straight out the rear

Thanks guys. I am happy with it to say the least. I picked up the seat and the pipes for a very low price off a guy I found on craigslist. I'd been looking for a Mustang for well over a year and I finally stumbled across this one last month. When I met the guy he had this set of Jardines and I just couldn't pass them up. Everything else was picked up bit by bit from this forum and ebay. There are good deals out there, mostly few and far between. Sometimes good things come to those who wait.
