1994 Vulcan 750 Opinions?

I do not have a picture of this bike. I found it in the ad paper and i am trying to do some research on it.

Does anyone here now much about these bikes or have an opinion of them?

Thanks

I looked at a 750 vulcan but ended up with the 800 classic. She was my 2nd bike, and I loved her, still do! I gave her back to my guy when I started chopping the 'Bitch'. Like the cars song, "my best friend's girlfriend, she used to be mine!"I would have another just like the 'Winch' in a second but I have contracted a sickness from my big brothers, I'd have to chop it up and he will never let me get my grubby hands on one again! haha Sometimes we have to search for after market parts, I think the 750's are harder to find stuff for. I don't know if it helps you, I'm sure you will be happy with whatever you pick!

bikez.com usually has specs, though you may have to search vaguely to find it. Like "Kawasaki 750" then scroll down to find it.

I own a 1992 VN750, Love it, wouldn't trade it for the world, for the best scource of info for this bike, check out VN750.com I'll be looking for you in the noob section... my screen name is the same there as here. ..

On this forum, check out "The Creep Show, $3000 build"

as for the VN800 parts, almost none change over to the VN750... the VN750 is a bastard bike with almost 0 aftermarket fallowing, that is not to say that with a little research and a lot of modding you can't get other stuff to work, it is just a matter of finding what works.

The VN750 is a helluva bike. All the stats on it show that many newer, bigger V-twins can't touch it. But it is built for shorter riders, but I have heard of people riding these two-up all across the country. If it's a decent price I'd jump on it!

On the VN750 forum there was a lady who rode one of these clear a crossed the US... all 48 lower states, she had one issue about 200 miles from home on her return trip... the stator finally gave out. The biggest problem with these bikes is the finicky charging system, rear drive hub failure do to lack of maintenance, and loud cam chain tensioners. we have a fix for most of these issues (still working on the charging system one). And as the above poster stated, these bike haul butt. The perform great in the twisties, and have a lot of get up and go on the flats... The bike has a lot of potential for a Chopper or Bobber, HERE is a link to some fine looking VN750 choppers and bobbers.

I love my VN750, and won't ever be getting rid of her. even when I do get another bike, the VN will always be in my stable.

the bike i learned to ride on was one of the 750's.
the friggin thing seemed like such a rocket. way more snap to it than you'd think and really nimble to ride and lean into.
my uncle (who owned it) sold it on a whim. every time we talk about that bike i feel like slapping him one in the chops for not telling me he was gonna get rid of it. i'd have bought it from him in a heartbeat!
so much potential for chopping and such, too!

I ahd a '92 vn1500 and was riding from Vegas to Indy. Met some guy on a '94 VN750 and his son was riding a new Harley from San Diego to Indy.
So we rode together from Utah.
Thing is, flat out the 750 smoked my 1500 and the Harley.
One thing about htopse Kaws though isw that hey will run when you think they shoulkdn't.
Great bikes.
Get it if you can.
