'93 VN750 Partial Restoration

Hey guys, finally started working on my Vulcan I got last Christmas from my cousin. Put new tires on it to make it more mobile since I moved to DFW. Pulled the engine today. Possibly going to powdercoat the frame, not sure yet. Ordered lots of parts yesterday. More to come.

I wanna see the powercoat done. Do it, do it, do it. And take pics too.

What parts did you ordered?

When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.
