Interesting VN750 sighted today...

I just got home from Southaven, Mississippi (south suburb of Memphis TN) and on my way to the airport, I stopped by the local Kawasaki shop looking for potential deals...

I say a used 2002 VN750 for sale with some interesting mod's...

Looks like the former owner of the bike added a custom front fender and totally modified the rear end of this bike. The tail light and the turn signals look to have come from a 1500 Mean Streak. The shock angle also looks lowered and to me doesn't look safe. The seat has been modified and is now attached using side mounting ears as the side rails have been removed and a custom tube frame is in the back of the VN750 seat. I personally would have gone for a solo seat.

The bike is being sold by Sky-Cycles Kawasaki Yamaha in Southaven, MS if anyone is interested. http://www.sky-cycles.com/pom.html

They did have a real nice American Flag themed 2002 Vulcan 1500FI Classic. That paint was real nice...

With the shocks at that much of an angle, it doesn't look like they'd work too well. I'm guessin' it'd be a kinda stiff ride.
The way the seat is mounted is interesting though.

With the new lowering brackets on mine,the shocks angle about the same as these and I really don't notice a differance from stock ride.
