Hurricane Michael

Son of a B----

I live up in the mountains in Maryland, and that damned hurricane Michael blew my freaking bike over. It smashed my brake lever and crumpled my saddlebag.

So on to my question; where can I get a replacement brake lever? I've checked ebay but as far as I can tell, all the ones I've found are for the 93 and newer with the round cylinder, and I have an 89 with the rectangular cylinder. Y'all know where I can get one, or what I should be looking for?

Go here: https://www.vn750.com/forum/eBay_Mar...php?styleid=25


Type in 'Vulcan 750 brake lever' in the 'Search For' window on the left.

Click 'Search' on the right.

I got 3 pages with lots of levers.

I've checked through ebay. Problem is, everything I'm finding is for the round master brake cylinder, but I have the older, rectangular cylinder. And unless I am wrong, they're different brake levers

Good find. I am hoping to get away with just the brake lever for around $10, but if thats all I can get, that'll have to be it

Hey guys, would some of y'all take a look at this ebay listing and tell me what you think? This seems to match my brake lever exactly but it is an aftermarket part of some kind and want to know if anybody knows if its crap or not before buying. Thanks!
