First Vulcan to chop!

Hi my name is Chris out of southeast Ga./ Northern Fl. Came across this 89 that had been sitting for many years and decided to pick it up. I am into chopping bikes and have a few full builds in the works with late 70's inline fours. This bike was already in the process of being chopped but just never finished. The ears were shaved and pods put on when I received it. I made some chopper pipes and this thing sounds bad. I got alot of comments on the mean sound of this bike at Daytona a few weeks ago. I got some other body mods in the works and will post pics soon. I love the torque of this thing. I almost ripped myself of the back after doing a hard launch!

When I picked it up.

Welcome to the group. You have a good start on that bike.

Here is a picture of an in line 4 that used to own. I did not do the work on it.
I have an 82 maxim that I would like to chop down.

That looks like the makings of a good Brat... More people need to understand that these bikes make a good chopper, bobber, or brat. I am curently Bratting mine out.

Current photos of the "dirty bitch". I call her this because she is mean, dirty and she tried to kick my ass when I got her.
