Update on the vulcan

Well its been a while since i have posted on here, so i thought i would give evryone an update. I finished my customs seat. Its not exactly how i wanted it, but for the first time ever doing anything like that it came out pretty good. I also made plug wires for it and replaced the old plugs and wires. I got it running really good now, its tagged and insured, riding it about every day. I will post pics up when i can. Hopefully i will be able to ge tthe custom exhaust done soon, im pretty sure im going to just straight pipe it and wrap up the exhaust with black exhaust wrap. Looking at making my own coaster plates tonight at work using the design from another post. Im also in the process of drawing up some forward controls. If anybody has any ideas on that feel free to share the wealth lol.

Congrats on getting the scoot on the road as your daily driver.
Somebody here was working on creating some forward controls a month or two ago, but I haven`t heard any updates lately.

Looking forward to seeing some pics of your bike.

Any pics of the finished seat? Ive read all those posts and was hopeing at some point that would come up again. The price for the jardine's is way to steep. I almost tried looking into modifying other controls but havent really had time.

Note that his plans for the forward controls in the opening post are simplified later.
