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.
