My rack and sissy..
Ignore the background in the first pic.. I've turned it around so rack is the right way up..
Pics of it mounted, then with the pad fitted..
You might be able to see that I've also relocated my indicators back further to allow for some saddlebags..

This is my solution to the stock seat mod mounting. I'm rebuilding the bike after an accident (seat flew off) and needed to do this before reupholstering seat. I saw someone ask on another post how someone had mounted their seat with no response so tackled it myself. Costs lest that 4$ from home depot. Parts needed: (6) #10 washers, (1) #10 x 5/16 in of x 1 in aluminum spacer (cut in half), (2) M5-0.8x30mm cap screws, (2) m5-0.8 nylon lock nuts, (2) M5-0.8 cap nuts. Gives about a 1/4 clearance from rear fender to cap nut.

Cool vn750 -86 Custom (Bobber-unfinished)

Hey bikers! I'm new to this forum and just had a look around and saw this thread.
I'd like to introduce myself and share a little bit of my story.

My introduction: Swedish male, 28 years old, I have two daughters with my beautiful fiancee (which thinks I'm insane for having such passion for 2 wheels )

So a little backstory.
In Sweden you must be 24 years of age to legally get your big-boy-big-bike license.
I was supposed to get it when I turned 24 but it's been postponed some years due to work, family etc. so this year I just said to myself "Do it already!"
So I did. I completed and passed the tests in 2,5 months, not a single drivers-ed class taken.

The bike I got for taking the test was a Kawasaki GPZ 750 -83 which sadly enough broke down the day after I passed the test. A week or so went by and I found an add on a VN 750 -86 for a steal price, ~7500 miles on it and in a very good condition! Could say that this bike was my silver lining.

My plan was to build a bobber of it this coming winter. But I couldn't help myself to wait that long so I tore her down and fixed her up a bit.

* I built my own MCCT for the cam chain issue, it had a horrible slap-noise to it so it was about time
* Wrapped up the exhaust headers
* Mounted straight stainless-steel exhaust pipes, cut in an angle and painted black. I decided to keep the power chamber
* Made a hard mount out of sheet metal to mount my 9" solo seat on
* Improvised rear end "cover" to the frame out of sheet metal, painted black as well
* Switched turn signals with my old bike, as well as the headlight.
* Changed the tail light three times already but I'm happy with the new one, don't have a picture of it though.
* and more


I have plans on other modifications as well such as an ear-shave, handlebar, maybe paint the rims and fork etc. but this is good enough for now I think.
I know not all people appreciate a "trashy"-bobber look, but hey. To each is own.

Everything I've modified is out of scrap laying around in my garage, except for the solo seat.

Rear ACCT was getting noisy, so decided to make up a MCCT. Pretty happy w/ how it turned out.

Thanks, RP. . . .

Yeah, have a couple machines around here. No, don't plan to make any more. I don't have a real good way of getting the shape. It ends up being a lot of screwing around and hand-work, which I don't mind for one or two, but it would get pretty monotonous for any more than that.
