Above is a picture of my 1999 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic. Click the photos with blue borders, for a peek at older pics of my bike. You'll see that it has been through many changes since May of 1999.

[bullet] I'm a small person, 5'1" tall and about 108 lbs, so this is a BIG bike for my build. Tweek lowered the frame so the saddle height is about 24", installed a set of 5 1/2" x 1" risers to pull the bars back, installed a set of handlebars from a Vulcan 1500 Classic (they have more 'pull-back'), modified the levers so my fingers would rest comfortably on them, altered the pedal position and installed floorboards for my feet, and "tweek'd the kickstand so the bike would park correctly with it's new lower stance. We also recently installed a Cobra crash bar, a custom-built Corbin Solo saddle, Iron Braid lever leathers, a headlight visor, RevTech wheels, Scootworks Belt drive and Brake Pedal, a chrome oil filter, and bunches of other goodies. It looks pretty good, doesn't it?

[bullet] Here's another view of my bike.

[bullet] Even though this bike is manufactured by Kawasaki, it's built in Lincoln Nebraska. Yep, American made. The Vulcan was actually designed by John Hoover of Kawasaki, in a computer simulation that morphed a 1941 Indian Motorcycle image to see what it _might have_ looked like today, if Indian had stayed in business throughout the evolution of Cruisers as we know them. He plugged in the styling trends that most companies followed over the last several decades, and the result was my beloved Vulcan Classic. Cool!
