Hi, I'm a new rider and was looking into getting a Vulcan when I found this one for sale.

I was wondering if anybody knew what the possible problems are and if it's worth picking up?

Minimum, you will almost certainly need to clean the carbs.
Spark plugs, maybe spark plug wires, maybe a coil. Flush the hydraulic brake lines. Clean all the electrical connectors. Check the compression while the carbs are off getting cleaned. You could be looking at having to replace the fork seals if they haven't been replaced in a long while.
