Sold my Rebel, just stepped into a Vulcan.

Sold my Rebel recently and was able to purchase this 1993 Vulcan at no out of pocket expense. I was very pleased.

A couple pics from the drive home. Stopped at a Pizza Factory. Yum.

Anyway, glad to be a part of your community now, and looking forward to all I can learn going through the archives here. Thanks for keeping such a resource on the web!

Edit: Boy, its not easy dealing with pictures here, huh?

Thanks! Good eye on the KZ! I'm going to try to get that one working. Not sure what all that is going to entail just yet. My father in law is a mechanic and he said just flush the fluids and refill and it should start back up. Haven't gotten there yet though.

And thanks swagman!

Apparently my reply never got posted!

Thanks CenturyNick, and good eye on the kz! I'm hoping to fix her up sometime once money allows. And the rebel was a great little bike, and could turn on a dime, but I'm happy to step into what my wife calls a big boy bike. lol

is that a KZ I see behind the vulcan? What kind of seat is that?





Thanks Swagman, happy to be here!

Apparently my reply never got posted! Keeps saying duplicate reply. weird. *Apparently quoting someone else is what was causing this.*
