Chopping the 750

Anyone have any dealings with the new chopper kit for the 750?
I'm thinking about chopping my bike and wondered if anyone else has.
I wouldn't mind knowing the pros and cons before attempting this.
I have a 2003 all stock.
Info greatly apprecieated.

Welcome to the group.

I know I've seen it discussed around here a bunch of times, and some have posted pics and links to that kit, but I don't remember where. While you wait for replies, try the "Search VN750" box in the upper right corner, and take a look through the gallery photos as well. Alot of people around here are pretty good about documenting in writing and photos all the stuff they do to their bikes.

VN750 Chopper

Did a Google search on Vulcan 750 Chopper and found this picture, can hardly tell it is a Vulcan. It might give you some ideas.

Are you referring to something like one of THESE kits?
Don't think any one here has used one, but Dianna did rake her's some when she added her sidecar.

There's quite a few pics of other customized 750's HERE too. Some include contact info (though I'm not sure how up to date they might be)

Chopping the 750

Yes as a matter of fact I am refering to the AME kit. I was trying to shine the lower front forks this morning, and took a closer look at the triple trees
on my bike. I see one problem right out of the gate. The top triple tree has the dash and other componets attached. From the look of the AME kit, I don't think the top tree will allow me to reattach the componets. Im going to remove the whole front end one day next week, so I can get a real good look at just what goes where. Also use this time and disasymbly to get a real good shine on the lower forks and detail the front tire and rim.

Thanks for the help folks.

i actually was emailing back and forth with them for a week of so asking questions and they sent me a brochure for their kits... let me see if i can post it on here...

here is the link and you need a pdf viewer...

http://www.ame-chopper.de/AME_Downlo...R_KITS_NEU.pdf

scroll down to page 10... it looks like the stock gauges to me..

if not you seem to be mechanically inclined enough to do it yourself so you could always fabricate some kind of dash if need be.. good luck and deffinetly keep me posted cuz im already saving up for one..

Chopping the 750

Just to let you know bigrepp61, I haven't taken the time to look at the pfd file you refered to. I have been sanding and polishing and sanding and polishing and ect and ect to get the bottom forks to shine like chrome. After 6 hrs I finaly finished the right side. I guess I'll do the left tomorow. But I'll take a look at that pdf file tonight to see if it helps. I'm only in for another week before I go back to sea. I'm trying to get her all shined up, so I can put her back in the shed. Hopefuly I can ride my next time home.
Thanks again
