WTB VN 1500 Parts Bike

I have a buddy working on a special full custom project and in need of a VN 1500 parts bike with a good swing arm including shocks, wheel, etc. (Fully functional rear.) Front end, electrical and motor condition are not a major concern except for possible resale to recoup some spent cash. We would prefer to find this on the east coast and even better in the Tri State area if possible to keep shipping cost to a minimum. If anyone has a lead on a setup as described please post here or PM me.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

What year 1500 is it? Did it start out life as a 1500 A or is it a newer classic /nomad type 1500.There is quite a bit of Difference from around '96 and up.I can check with some of the VROC members for you if I know what particular years you are interested in,Tom

I rechecked this with my buddy that requested the parts and he does not really care which model the parts come from as long as they are from a Kawasaki 1500 motorcycle with a drive shaft. He needs the swing arm, shocks, rear, rear brakes, drive shaft, and wheel. This is for a full custom build so he can make any shaft drive Kawasaki model work as long as it is from a 1500. Finding these parts in the NJ, NY, CT, PA area would be great to save on the shipping costs. Thanks.

the shaft drive 1500 is only the A model, B models are belt driven. so he needs a 1985-1997 VN1500 A. you might check with Pinwell Cycle Parts out of PA. they are a huge Bike Salvage yard. Sounds like he mostly needs a rolling chassis, so that is where I would look first. if not them, try Old Bike Barn as well.

Thanks for the information. He doesn't need a frame or anything forward of the swing arm. I believe he is building the frame entirely himself as he did with his turbo charged diesel trike. The only things that he did not build on that were the neck, forks, wheels and motor. The engine came from a VW Rabbit or Jetta and the neck was from a Yamaha. He needed that for the vin number. He built the entire frame himself following his own design after a very long period of engineering calculations. It passed NJMV inspection with no problem but has since been modified and improved.

He has some great ideas for this new bike to make it very unique. I am still in the primary planning stages for the trike I want to build. Right now I am looking for the right engine and from there I will be able to start planning on the frame which I hope to build at Bill's shop. Once that is done I will need a garage space where I can set things up and turn out a rolling chassis so as to move onto building a fiberglass body. The difficult part will be to design the body to have replaceable panels for any future possible damage.

If you hear of a salvage rear from a VN 1500 A let me know. I am ready to see this thing get started as much as Bill is. My trike will take a bit more planning time with actual building to be maybe next winter if all goes well.

I am not sure this is correct,I have never seen a belt drive 1500.The 2000 and 1700 are ,But I'm pretty sure that A thru N models are all shaft driven. Actually a 1600 swingarm is just a little longer 1500 swingarm and are interchangeble .So,if he is going to do a bunch of fabricating he can include the 1600 swingarm in his web search.
