Per Tina's advice, a new thread for my new (to me) bike.

1997 Vulcan 1500...



I'll get my title in the mail in a few days (they're registered as a dealer, they gotta do the hoop jumping thing), then I'll get plates for it. I'd like to put a new rear tire on it, too. Something big; the biggest I (they) can fit on the rim. It needs replaced anyway.

She's a beauty, Caleb. I'm happy for you. I can't wait to see what you do with it, I'm sure you won't make the Chrome lovers very happy!

Heh, no I won't. I'm sure the blingers here will be cringing at what I'm going to do to this bike...

Obviously, you chose this bike because it matches those blue ratchet straps. *nods knowingly*

Looking forward to it. Be nice to feel something comfortable.

Note to self, need front tire too. What do y'all recommend? I want something big, something beefy, but not without grip.

That bike is you. Now you have to take a pic of you kneeling in front of the bike the way that you did in front of your truck. Nice ride, congrats!

Way Cool Caleb. I know you've been kind of wanting to get something a little newer/bigger for a while now.

Like others have already said, I'm sure it won't be long before it starts to sport a new and "Unique" look. ;-)

Congratulations.

Congrats their bud. That bike is begging for a decent set of Apes (aren't they all really?)

Looking forward to seeing you "personalize" that baby.
