Can't wait to see pics.
I'm interested in seeing how the wheels look with the drive unit painted too.
I've thought about doing that a few times.

I'm planning on turning my vulcan into a project bike once I buy a Bonneville America. Probably not for another year. I'll be watching this thread for those little things you don't find in the manuals.

Speaking of manuals I have a Clymers manual. Are they any better or worse than any others?

I think there are two agreed-upon problems with Clymers: first, they tell ya to pull the engine for everything (changing spark plugs, cleaning bugs off windshield, checking tire pressure...) - but folks here can tell ya ways around some of those "inconveniences;" Second, the pictures are darned-near impossible to see - I thought it was just my manual (too old), but Hyper says that's kinda how they all are. Haven't seen if there's a Haynes manual for the 750s, but I have one for carb/carb theory and the pics aren't too good there, either.

Otherwise, though, Clymers seems to give pretty decent directions for most tasks.

Wheels at the power coater cost $223.00 "ouch" but he also will do a second stage and clear the rims after applying the black for free.

Nice Guy
