Default Hello from H-Town

Hi, I'm John, a transplanted coonass from Louisiana living in the concrete jungle of Houston for a decade now. Not a Vulcan owner (yet) but maybe soon.

Looking at an '03 with 30k miles. Anything I should be diligent when I check it out?

Haha! That's a great euphemism for them Dave. Go ahead and get her if she's good Cajun and you won't regret it. She's a good looker to on top of it all.

Price seems pretty good for year / mileage...only issues that come to mind are final drive problems. I would suggest you post on the "1500" board and ask their opinion on what best to look for. For sure, any weeping/oil around the final drive casing should make you wary......
