Cool My other ride...

Thought I should fill you guys in with my new project that is taking me away from the Bonneville forum lately.

I bought a bike again for the summer. Its a salvaged 2007 Vulcan 900 Classic..for now.
I'm either going to restore to stock or 'Bobber' it.

Enjoy.....I am....peace

Doesn't look like much but there is a lot there!



Well thats it for today. More photos tomorrow. i'll take my digital camera and take some really nice shots.

Thanks for looking!

I think Kevin and John have really cool bikes to. Hey if you guys want to share your bike photos here feel free to do so. We can make it our thread. Doesn't have to be about me only.

-Todd

Todd!

Sweet!! I vote for the bobber!

I have a hypercharger on my VTX1800F and love it. I also remapped the fuel and ignition and opened the exhaust with some Cobra pipes. I can set off car alarms three block away when I get on it!

Keep this thread going! I want to see your progress on this little project!

Hey hey Kevin! Thanks.

You want to post some of your bike photos here? I wanted to see if John will to.

I think it will open up a huge door to other Bonneville members out there that have motorcycles to.

Thanks for the interest.

Oh and i'm leaning towards bobber to.

Bobber'* are far and few out there....I like the style and the fact that you don't see that many on the road. Make us proud Todd!

Thanks Todd! I like it also. There was a Blue one, Silver and this Burgundy one on the floor at the Honda dealer when I went to buy. It was the color that sold me on the bike...it makes all the chrome shine that much better!
