New Vulcan owner from Denver
Just picked up an 89 Vulcan with 1,100 miles for a song.
Very good shape for its age. Garage kept, owner died 10 years ago and the wife finally decided to sell it.
I was looking for a Moto Guzzi, but after seeing this has so many rave reviews over the years, shaft drive, hydraulic tappets and classic simple design, I had to jump on it.
It's missing the toolbox, air filter cover chrome is peeling, carbs are fouled with old gas (but ran on starting fluid), front struts are leaking, horn doesn't work, tall backrest pad needs reupholstered and the tries are dry rotted.
I plan to replace the engine mounts, brake lines, coolant hoses and seals, regulator, final drive seal...pretty much everything rubber and make this a long-term keeper.
Full LED conversion will come after I get everything settled in and make sure the engine isn't going to puke every gasket from sitting so long.
