My 1998

I like the lines of the Vulcan. It feels like it wants to be a skinny 70's style chopper, but as per Japanese engineering, I think they kind of overkilled the design. This is just my opinion. I love a lean minimalist motorcycle so I started stripping things off of it and here are some pics.

The toggle runs both the headlight and the radiator fan. This is because the fan switch is burned out and the original owner simply wired a toggle to run it once the temp got too hot. I wired the headlight off of it as well as to guarantee that I run the fan since I no longer have a temp gauge on it.

Thanks,

It's coming along slow and steady. I have to do projects that will only leave the bike down for no more than a day or two. Down here in Austin, we're able to ride pretty much year round. So smaller things here and there are the best way to get things done and stay on the road. I am getting a set of 9" struts made and I need to do something with the seat. It's gotta be on the cheap though.
