Well here in Southern Tenn. I seldom see one one... Vulcans yes, vn750s no, I'll see several of the 8 & 900s, and the 15 & 1600s and an occasional 2000, but but seldom a vn750...
Personally I love the style, I guess that is why when I wrecked my 06 I bought another used one, it just was not the bike mine was, although it had only 1/2 the mile mine did...
Couldn't get a new one, so I went with the Sportster which I think is close in style...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

There are alot of 750's here. As they were made from '85 to '06 , even if not a popular model here, they sold fairly well.


I have no idea of exact figures, but would say they are not hard to find ....in running condition... We have 4000 members here, so that's at least 4000 right?

The numbers however will begin to go down, as older models die off or get replaced...this happens to all discontinued bikes....the thing the 750 has going for it is the many production years.

Some models only go a few years before they are dropped, so finding those tends to be harder.

There is a smaller amount of the Vulcan's in general in my area. I know of one toher owner of a VN here, but he's got the 1500 series. I think I'm the only one that has the VN750. In the other surrounding towns I know the 900 and 1500 is very popular.

Yes it was.... sorta... I meant to say:

I doubt that there are 9000 active members, and many have gone, sold their bikes, and some that still visit here, like me, no longer ride a Vulcan 750...so my thinking is at this time there are at least 4000 members that still have their 750's , even if some of them no longer visit the site.

Again just a guess.

It would be neat if someone could research this to see how many 750's were made here or imported here. (yes folks, the Vulcan 750 was assembled in Lincoln , Nebraska)
