Picked up parts bike

I got this today. 200$ for the lot. No sure what I have yet. And not sure what I am going to do with it either.

Well, at least you got a serviceable swing arm cap out of it.

I like the swept up rear fender, actually.

That is what he wanted. But he could not find the gas tank. I offerd him 200$.

I also have the full stock exhaust. Not real good shape, but usable.

LOL, I think that chopped up one (a 700?) is the worst looking Vulcan I've ever seen. But to have it not missing that cap is really one of those "Priceless" moments.

Did you have to dig it out of a hay barn? That's like a 700/750 combo deal. It will be fun figuring out what you have! Cool stuff...
