    Default Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Hardtail

    Have always wanted to do a hardtail build, so I decided to seek out a new project for the build. Wanted to do a genuine hard tail not just a springer seat.

    Bout this vulcan from Byron Bay....was a long drive but totally worth it. Bike was relatively original but had the rear spring chipped down so it had virtually no suspension travel

    Definitely not the easiest model to choose as it runs a frame that has removal sections in the main supports to remove the motor

    When I first got home with it

    This is once I had chopped the suspension/engine mount assembly much weight in it
