Just got a Harley. Dumping the Vulcan off for cheap

I posted a few weeks ago but really wasn't stressing selling the bike. It's currently getting the front caliper worked on in the shop. I have well over 3k (with receipts) put into it less than 5 months ago.
Just bought a Harley & this bike has to go. I originally was asking 2400. Figured it should go fast for $1,500.00
NYC location. Inspected & ready to ride.
Email is easier. [email protected]
Or cell 212-920-4652

Below is the specs.



86 Kawasaki Vulcan VN750
Inspected! Ready to ride!!
Under 8k miles on the speedo. Might have a bit more miles on it since the speedo cable was broken when I got the bike.
New speedo cable & wheel spindle
New front and rear brakes
Rebuilt calipers
Charcoal rat paint job.
Vance & Hines Cobra exhaust. Really loud!
Pickup coil mod.
Headlight blue wire mod.
Harley Fat boy seat with sportster sissy bar with bag rest. Have sportster bag too if you want it. (Sissy bar removed but have it for you)
Full Tuneup & new fluids
Jackshaft adjustment
New throttle cable
LED front turn signals
Bullet rear turn signals
Upgraded headlight
New rear tire
New vacuum lines
Removed (ear filter) and added K&N pod filters.
Stage one jet kit on rebuilt carbs.
New mosfet high performance regulator
New high shot high performance stator. Engine was removed to replace so everything was cleaned when it was taken out and put back together.
Crash bars (removed but still have it)
Lower handlebars
Also have a highway wind screen. (Removed but have it if you want it)
Comes with manual.
There's probably some more odds and ends that has been done to it but I can't think of it at the moment.
I've invested well over $3k in the bike in the last few months. Not including what I actually paid for the bike. I know I won't get back what I put into it. I have all receipts. You'll see I'm actually asking less than what the last trip to the shop cost me.

Keep in mind that this is not a new bike. It's an 86. Though so much has been done to it. It's still an older bike so don't expect you're gonna be rolling off with a fuel injected 2012 bike.

It's really fast since I had a lot of performance stuff done to it. I ride it daily to work so you know I keep it maintained. It's also kept in a garage indoors so nobody messes with it.

$2,400.00 or best offer. Extreme lowball offers will be ignored.

I live on the upper east side & work in soho. Can be seen any day.

Welcome my sportster brother. Hey let me know what you think of that seat. Guy had one for sale here and it looked comfy but was worried that I wouldn't be able to scoot back far enough.

I haven't gotten it yet. Guy still has to dig around his house for the title.

Worst case. I'll go buy this today. Click image for larger version
