Vulcan 750 custom trike

Check this thing out. Talk about custom!
If it's a photoshopped pic, it's a pretty good one. Looks real to me.
(second pic is a Vulcan 500 trike I was only able to find a pic of)

Couldn't find any other info yet, besides this....


This is my 2004 Kawasaki 750 Vulcan with a '74 Dodge Colt 411 rear end inverted. Very clean and custom. Not cluttered with cargo compartments. Rear suspension includes two swing arms. Custom seat, Dual front disc brakes, rear brake drums.

That looks good, I saw a pict of one that had indipendent rear suspention from a Corvair. Don't rember where the pict was, I think it was in England.

looking at that pic makes me think that our shafties would be fairly easy to convert to a trike....I'm surprised theres not more of them I just took a second look at the pictures and saw that the first bike has a solo seat in front, great work....adds to originality

Looks real good but did anyone notice the second pic is a 500, not 750.

Yep, noticed that.
I was searching for more info on the 750, and that's when I found the 500 pic, but no other info for either one.

On the topic of our "shafties". When I happened to be in the Honda Shop last I noticed that it seemed like the shafts on their bikes are WAY puny compared to ours.

Any ideas how they can get away with that????

Ours are relatively small. It's the housing around it that is kinda big.
Although, I haven't really looked at the Honda's to see if maybe they are all that small.

There is one thing I would like to know.

Since the eng is only a 750 how fast would one go?

I mean does our eng put out enough torque to even make a modification like that practicle? I would think that with any use the engine would wear its self out pretty quick.

Its cool looking and all that but........

Food for thought.
