I've decided to sell Betty and keep the Vulcan.
I just received the front brake master cylinder in the mail and once I install it, she's going to a new home.
I rode her around a little back and forth to work once. I decided I like the Vulcan better. Betty still needs a little work and is still a little on the ugly side.
Another major reason I'm selling it is because I never got the title for it, the guy I'm selling it to has gotten bonded titles before and though it's a pain, it's worth it if you really want the vehicle. He wants it more then I do.
I did ride it a little. A total of about 20 miles. ( with no front brake... not for the weak willed.) I felt like a real bad a$$ with the ape hangers and LOUD drag pipes.
I'll be getting a few hundred dollars more then I invested plus another bike in good condition. Part of the sale includes a 77 KZ650. This is reminiscent of the KZ750 I rode in High School. I'd say the Kawi is worth $600 or so.
All in all, it was an excellent experience and though I didn't see the project to 100% of my vision, I had alot of fun and am completely satisfied with the result.
Had I got the title as promised when I bought it, (Shane is a giant douche), things may have been different.
