Black wheels

The black wheels off of the early models look better, I like my wheels, you can get them pretty cheap off of scrapped bikes on Ebay.

1985 VN700A
FYI :
Kawasaki introduced the 750 cc class Vulcan worldwide in 1985. Due to tariff restrictions in the United States on bikes over 700 cc imported from Japan, the initial US spec model was limited to 699 cc. The tariff was lifted in 1986 and the Vulcan went to 749cc.

the vl600 has been considered for the rear https://www.vn750.com/forum/27-wheels...els-750-a.html https://www.vn750.com/forum/27-wheels...-wheels-2.html the front won't be as hard,axle size has to be the same,and would need to worry about spacers, brakes,etc.nothing is gonna be a bolt on

the good thing about the 600 elimenator wheel is u can lace any size rim/tire that will clear swing arm,otherwise machine shop work with another rim to make it fit like i did

I like the look of the black wheels too. In fact, I've been looking at wheels tonight, and have a question. Does anyone know if the front rim off of this '85 VN700 will fit an '03 VN750? How about the rear wheel from the same year?

Wheels, other than color are the same for ALL model years, including the VN700.
