Hyper, thanks. Yes, CD's site has some real nice custom Vulcans on it.

BSkaggs513 Speaking of RWL tires, I was looking for a good RWL set to replace my OEM's. What would I expect to spend for a set of these and are these the only ones that come with raised letters? I have always liked that look, but does one spend considerable extra $$ to get the letters, or can I get better tires for the same money if I forget about the 'look'?

Also- do these tires come in the slightly wider size as some folks have used on replacement tires for our bikes?

I appreciate y'alls input.

First, let me say that it photographs well! It's not in nearly as good of shape as most of the bikes I've seen on this forum. It's had a few mods from the PO and PPO(s) and none are "docmented" so I am not sure exactly what all they did do. For example, and to answer your questions, the solo seat is a cut down stock seat and is NOT mounted! It just sits there and the upper frame rails keep it in place. (But I have not hit a big bump yet!) Also I have no idea how many miles the 491's have on them (one of the PO's installed them) and I have nothing to compare them to. They still have plenty of tread and seem to handle very good. The bike has over 30K miles on it.

They bike is already converted to a rigid with 2-inch drop bars replacing the shocks (soon to be on oglejust's bike!). I am planning to modify the frame to a rigid, replace the rear fender and add a sprung solo seat in the near future. Sort of a metric bobber. I have already shaved the ears and added the small cone filters.

I am thinking about starting a "build thread" where I document the changes here on VN750.com (mainly the frame modification). Hopefully I would get some feedback, critiques, and comments as I progress. Any interest in seeing a build thread?

If you're wanting to get a set of 491 Elite II's, get them soon. From all I've heard, they're being replaced by the Elite III's which don't have the RWL's.

I'm on my third rear and still on the second front (which should last until this rear one goes) but have never really payed attention to the mileage. I do know they seem to last quite long and handle great.
