First post!

I am considering purchasing a 1986 Vulcan 750 and have been gaining knowledge from your forums and database. You guys really know your stuff. I am a newbie to Vulcans and motorcycles in general. I currently own an 86 Kaw 454 LTD and have been playing around with it. Its a fun bike but i need something bigger so here i am looking at Vulcans.

Im sure ill have a ton of questions when i find the right bike so thanks in advance for any help.

Ride safe

Welcome Ian!

The VN750 is my first bike and I also found this site in advance of its purchase. This site is a gold mine of information and one of the reasons I proceeded with the VN750 purchase. In fact, I already had the first few mods picked out, thanks to the folks here, even before bringing it home (i.e., AGM battery, LED brake/turn bulbs, SilverStar headlight, etc.).

Welcome for the North side of Chicago, The 750 is a great bike, I had one for years, I have moved to a Nomad but I do miss the 750 at times.
