Post Vn750-a2 - vega

Good Morning everyone,

After many years, finally I was able to buy a VN750 in Manila - Philippines. I have a house there where always enjoy my holidays.
The bike was in a very MESS condition and I am starting to overhaul her slowly.
This bike was imported from Japan to Philippines on 2002, but I am practically sure that is 1986 one (Chrome fenders). I would appreciate your help in order to proper identify the production year of my bike (still not decided the name).

My Chassis # is VN750A-001535 and Engine# VN750AE00/56/

Many thanks,
Eugeni.

Many thanks, but I already discovered that by bike is OLDER than 1996. This web is only giving info from 1996 up today.

Yes, an A2 is a 1986, at least in the U.S. The number denotes the year of production, in sequence. My 2002 is an A18, because 2002 was the 18th year of production. 1986 was the second year of production. Can you post a picture? I think the Vulcan looks great with chrome fenders. All we ever got in the U.S. were painted fenders.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

In the U.S., all Vulcan 750s from '86 to '2006 were the same except for paint colors, and I believe the brake master cylinder. One was round, the other was rectangular, but if you have the complete unit, they are interchangeable. However, I don't know about non U.S. models. They are PROBABLY all the same.

Good morning everyone,
reaqding amoung the chat, it seems really necesary to re-allocate the regulator/rectifier and to add a voltmeter gauge.
If you are agree about it, there is any kind of voltmeter that is possible to "integrate" with our gauges in a nice way.
thanks
