Potential Buy, Help w/ issues

Hi, everyone, new here to the forum. I'm not an owner of a Vulcan *yet* but will hopefully change that soon. I'm looking at maybe buying up a bit of a project for the winter, but I'm having some trouble figuring what is or might be the main problem the PO is telling me. Bike in question is a '92 Vulcan 750. It was parked a few years ago covered up and he's saying he parked it because the (quoting him here) "Hydraulic clutch master cylinder went out. No fluid pressure to operate the slave cylinder" However in my so far brief amount of researching I've been doing, I can't find anything about a clutch master nor slave, only clutch cables. He MAY be referring to the brakes, I'm not 100% sure until I go see it in person, but I'm curious as to what this might be if there is a hydraulic clutch on this bike. I know the bigger brothers like the 1500 have them, but can't find anything about the 750. Thanks in advance!

if it has a clutch master cylinder it's not a Vn750

Any way to tell from this picture of it? I know it's pretty dirty and dusty, but hopefully it'll be a diamond in the rough.

Hmm, okay then. Might have a bit of a score here then, depending on the shape it's in overall. He's only asking $300 for it

I'd buy it for $300.Vulcan Forums(just type Vulcan forums into a search engine and it should show up)would be a really good place for information on the 1500 as this site caters to the 750,and not much if anything is the same between the two.good luck with it
