I've really enjoyed reading all of your post. I'm looking at getting my first cruiser this spring (Had a dual-sport and dirt bikes before this). I am seriously considering the Vulcan because they seem to be available. With that in mind, since you all know your stuff about this bike, maybe you could tell me if you think this ad has some potential. I found it in a local paper. I have a limit of about $3,000 (not including riding gear), but a less would always be nice. I'm 6'4" and 200 lbs. Am I too big for a Vulcan like this?
1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 750, 31k mi,
excellent condition. Has been well
maintained and garaged, starts and
runs great. Shows very little wear
and almost looks new. Gets about 50mpg.
Extras: windshield, tank bag, gel seat
pad, 2 fullface helmets, HJC Chatterbox
with 2 headsets, Guardian cover. Has shaft drive
and hydraulic valve adjusters, so very
little maintenance. Pretty much just get
on and ride. $2700 OBO
So what do you guys think, worth a shot? Or should I just hold off?
