Document cover anyone

Looking for a document cover or ideas to fill the void behind the seat of my 1986 750. If anyone has one let me know please.

Are you talking about the black plastic tool box on the back of the rear seat? These can be found a lot of times on Ebay, at a resonable price. Keep checking Ebay.

I have one, but do not use it, because if you do, the door will break off. Really stupid design. I even went so far as to screw some bolts into the seat, cut them off without 3/4" sticking out, put plastic bolt covers on them, and enlarged the bolt holes in the plastic box, so I can remove and install the seat without opening the door. I do have the extended backrest to help hold the seat in place. That box lid is probably the "dumbest" thing on the Vulcan 750. I mean, just who would have designed something like that anyway? Certainly no engineer. Jerry.

I know, I know, but of the 3 vn750s I had, none had a problem with the lil Doc./tool box...
I was actually dissapointed that the Sportster didn't have one, had to get a fork bag and one of the wife's spice bottles (water proof) to carry my registration & Ins. papers in...
Soooo, I guess I thought it was a great idea...lol...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

I have one I got from ebay. It came with some bolts I needed, I don't think I have the key for it but you can have it if you just pay the shipping. Let me know if you want it.

It wasn't a bad idea, it just should have had some kind of hinge on the door. I mean, how much more would that have cost? Besides they went out of their way to add a lot of features to this bike, some of them actually unnecessary, yet the build a tool box door like that? And then leave it that way for 22 years? It makes you think Kawasaki never took the Vulcan 750 seriously. They even failed to lube the final drive splines, apparently on every single Vulcan 750 made, again for 22 years. Was this an intentional self destruct mechanism? I have a whole lot of questions about the Vulcan 750, most of which I suppose I will never have answers to. A very mysterious bike. Jerry.
