2004 vn750 for sale

I will be 79 on my next birthday in February, I am starting to think that it is time to give up the bike. If I can sell it before November I can drop the insurance and I won't have to renew the license. If I can do that I could let it go for $1500.00. It looks good runs strong shifts smoothly. It has a windshield and saddlebags. I put new fork seals in last spring. I also greased the splines. It is about as stock as they come. Its Black and silver and has 17500 miles. It could be ridden anywhere. In central Illinois there will still be a some good riding weather. I have trouble uploading pictures, but I could E-Mail or text pictures if there is any interest.

Ride Safe

P.S. It is not the bike in my signature. I sold that one and bought this one a couple years ago..

New to me 2004 15k Last liscened in 2011. Stock as they come.

does it bother you to ride? I'd hate to see you give up riding when you are still able.I give you a lot of credit for riding at almost 80 but I understand if you have to give it up.

Riding at almost 80 yrs old

I have been blessed with good health. I can move well, have never had any back trouble and am not bothered with arthritis. I guess I have gotten along well this far I would hate to end it with something that I may have to spend the rest of my life with, which could be a week or several years. If I get it sold, I am sure there will be days when I will wish I had it back. My biggest regret is that I waited so long to get a bike. I was in my 40's before I finally got a bike. My first bike being a Suzuki GS750. For the last 5 years I keep thinking I will quit, and sell my bike. Then the weather gets nice and I have bought another one. This time I think I am ready to park it for good.

Ride Safe

Sounds great for the price, you are going to make someone local very happy.
If I could've found one in your condition and price I'd have been a excited man

Good luck on sale and good on you for preparing and gracefully dealing and prepping for phases we all experience in life.

Thumbs up

Hey Mcneuby,sorry to hear you are giving up riding,but glad that its not do to health reasons.If I lived near you I would gladly buy it,just to have a newer one. Maybe I can talk my brother into changing his route,he's heading south at the end of the month. Well good luck to you and yours,as you were the first to befriend me when I joined up here. I'm still plugging along,healthwise,so take care,Paulywog.

Well now you're making me feel a little sad. I'm 45, and just now shopping for my first bike, having just taken a New Rider course back in June. Although it's great to hear that you've gotten between 30 and 40 good years of riding, and it's awesome to hear that those years were so good that you still regret having not had decades more, it just underscores that I had better hurry up and get out there.

I don't know what is about the Vulcan 750. Something about it is calling my name. I guess any bike that can go essentially unchanged for 20 years must have been something really special.

Good for you that you have been able to ride for so long, and that you have taken care of yourself (myself, I'm feeling a little health pressure to get out there now also, because I have diabetes and my legs have already been affected a little. Since I can't know how many years I'll have the full use of my legs, I need to get out there while I can). And good for you to be making the decision to hang it up, if you feel the time is right. I hope you find a good home for your bike (I'm still window shopping, while I continue to explain to my wife that this is something that is going to happen).

Just go for it! I'm 43 and a disabled rider, been riding bikes since I was a kid. Although wrenching and working at them takes me ten times longer to do than the average guy, I still get it done

The Vulcan 750 is definitely one of those "bikes" you either love them or hate them... I'm a lover lol

Get your test and buy a bike, you'll not regret it, riding a motorcycle is one of life's great pleasures... don't live life with regrets, you are a long time dead!

I already have my endorsement. In my state (TN), passing the MSF course qualifies you for the license. So at least I can legally ride. Now I just need to pick up something that isn't too nice, and spend some quality time in a high school parking lot on a weekend, and riding around my subdivision -- just to make sure I'm not a hazard to the public at large
