hi all.
i bought a used 99 vulcan 800a its a real nice ride it has 10k on the clock and a small dent on the tank. its got a set of vance and hines drag pipes and some factory drag bars with a corbin saddle with fire and steel floorboards. it also has a set of willie max bags. i just installed a set of drag specialty mirrors and a pair of kuryakin iso flame grips.
i plan on removing the badges and painting some real fire flames on it this spring. switching out the floor borads for a set of scootworks forward controls and grampsizing the air box. plus some other cool tricks.
not bad for $2500. im very happy

thanks all.
i actually found it on craigslist. a verizon worker was losing his storage space in a bronx verizon wharehouse where he kept it. so he decided to try and sell it for $3500. when nobody bought it. he didnt know why. so he lowered it to $2800 . i live out on long island so i drove the 45 miles offered him the $2500 and rode it home. he was the original owner and had all the add ons installed by the dealer.

its alot smaller of a bike im used to , im downsizing from a couple of sportbikes and a harley electra glide . i just wanna cruise around .

and cruiserone. when the board changing comes around this spring ill try and remember to pm ya to see if ya want those boards.

I ll second that on the pegs, I think the floorboards make a bike look like a wheelchair.
Im old but I am not ready to get in one!

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on the steal of a deal.
Here is a link you may be interested in taking a look at. It's called the 800 club where everybody in it rides an 800 A B or E model. Some real nice folks there to share ideas and mods etc. The site is fairly new, but it is coming along nicely.
Take a look for yourself. ---> the "800 Club"
and maybe you could introduce yourself here if you're interested in learning more about it. --> http://www.kawasakimotorcycle.org/forum/kawasaki-cruisers/55391-800-club.html
Just tell them the Dudester sent ya.
