1993 Vulcan 750 for Sale

After 20 years I'm parting ways with my Vulcan. Bike has 36,844 miles run ok, could use some tuning. Thought I'd give first dibs here on the forum

New battery this spring
Tires: Metzeler Marathon ME880 (F 110/90, R 170/80)
Horn: Wolo Bad Boy 118DB
Willie and Max Braided saddle bag and toolpouch
Windshield: National Cycle StreetShield EX
R&R Relocated
TOC Manufacturing manual cam chain tensioners
New Fork seals
Cover

Fuel gauge does not work. I count miles and get 125 miles when I hit the reserve. Better mileage when I'm out for a long ride

Stored indoors until 2 weeks ago.

Located in New Hampshire.

Tough sell this time of year, good luck.
Do yourself a favor and sell the luggage rack and maybe your highway pegs on here. If you're selling the bike local, those items won't up the value to anyone who doesn't know better. You might get a few extra bucks out of it that way.
What are you looking to get out of it??

I agree. Sell the luggage rack and highway pegs separately on eBay to maximize your return.

Unless you have the original "crash bar/engine guard" to put back on I would not take anything off before selling. That said, depending on what you want for it you are probably ahead to sell the the entire bike for parts on EBay. Your bike has many things that are missing and hard to find (swing arm covers?) for others and if it runs good with no dents in the tank or fenders parts are usually worth more than the bike as a whole. But the time a trouble of parting out a bike also has to be taken into account and it is a B****. Vulcans here in the Sacramento area, with 1/2 your miles go for under $2,000.00, this time of year.

People do not really understand things like relocating the R&R or even replacing the stator (one add say his 1997, with "only 15,300 original miles. Runs Great. Has some type of electrical charging issue. Maybe a stator ($60 part), but possibly loose connection somewhere. " Asking price is $1,800.00 FIRM. (He does not have a luggage rack or highway pegs or even the engine guard)

If you were not at the other end of the country I would love to have your ride.
Good luck on the sale. (Are you sure you don't want to just save it in a corner somewhere with a sheet on top?)

That makes zero sense.

When reselling a VN, accessories don't add much to the price of the bike. He can take the accessories off, and sell the bike for the exact same price as if he had the accessories on the bike.

Nobody told him to tear down the bike. We told him to take off the luggage rack and highway pegs and sell those separately.

Sorry if my post didn't make sense. Actually when selling a Vulcan 750 nothing you have done or added increases the value much. That includes Tuxedo Mods, being Coastered & Shaved, having TOC MCCTs, or K&N Filters, marbles and homemade CCT’s, whether you have Metzeler ME880's or Avon Venom tires or even chrome valve caps. 90% of the people reading the add won’t have a clue what has been done, the effort involved or how it improves the bike. They look at the pictures, the price and the miles.

Actually I was not advocating anything be removed. Without knowing the sales price, I merely observed that a good running Vulcan with high miles is usually worth more in parts when sold, a sad reality with most of the vehicles I own, including my cages. My example was the guy saying his bike only needed a $60.00 stator and he wanted $1,800.00 firm. He has no idea the amount of work to replace a stator (or probably what a stator is). While I do appreciate a good running Vulcan, even with 36,000 miles, most people do not. I did note that for $1,800.00 the 1997 bike (on Craigslist) did not have the luggage rack or engine guard.

GDouglas' bike is a good looking bike and I say again that if it was here on the west coast I would not hesitate to buy it at a fair price. It is a clean, well maintained bike and I believe if it had a problem he would have mentioned it. Again I am sorry if I made anyone's Saturday confusing and I certainly was not trying to offend anyone, but if I did it won't keep me up tonight.

Ah ok I was confused and this makes more sense.

If anyone was actually offended, you'd know.

Sorry, I was not getting notifications to my post. I was thinking $1,300 and hoping there may be someone local looking for a Vulcan. I may consider parting out the bike.

1300 sounds like a fair shake for a functional machine.
