So I saw this on ebay
From what i've read so far. This would be a direct bolt on with the exception of the front wheel but if I can get a vn1500 front wheel that won't be any issue.
Which should leave me with the problem of gauges but I figured I would do a digital multi gauge to embrace the cleaner look. And handlebars and controls right?
Would the extra rake of the vn1500 triple tree make a huge difference in the ride?
That's a Nomad front end, I'm not sure the trees are raked . I think the difference in Rake is in the frame. The 750 uses a leading axle front end so you would definitely have a shorter wheel base if the fork tubes are the same length.
The 1500 nomad wheel is the one you would want and you need to find one with the rotors already on it. I have a set of stock risers which use the one inch bars. I replaced mine with a set off of a 900 C or a Meanie, they are identical. both had the risers built off the bar with ,and I am guessing here, 6 or 7 inches in rise and about 3 to 4 inches of of pullback in the risers. The bars are flat drag style and about as wide as your shoulders.
You will be dropping front wheel size to 16" diameter and a wider front tire ,mine is a 130. I think with a smaller custom front fender and that polished aluminum front wheel would look pretty sweet on the 750 frame. you will have to go with the Nomad front master cylinder to fit the one inch bars.
I don't know what kind of bars you are planning on using but the factory one piece drag style bars I described would make it look lower and in my opinion cooler. If you like the taller bars I have some risers you could have for shipping if you decide to go that rte. I like the way you're thinking
Oh yeah I forgot you need the axle spacers and the speedo drive of of an 04 and back Nomad as well, the later models run an electric speedo with the speed sensor on the trans. I have a bracket that mounts to the stock style risers , you can either run a mini speedo or a tach in it and it centers up in front of the risers if you are interested in it as well. I'll look for the wheel on ebay and show you what it looks like so you can tell if you like it.
If you see it on my bike I did it
