2003 Vulcan 500 LTD - $3,000 OBO (Florida)
Motorcycle was purchased early 2012 and had only 5,000 miles on the clock. It's seen extensive highway use the following four years, but last year I rode it only a thousand miles or so. It now has around 27,500 miles on it.
Surprisingly smooth and stable at highway speeds, especially with a good load on the back, I think the relatively light 500's are an excellent cruiser platform.This one has been very reliable and I expect will be for years to come.
I have made many improvements to the bike to make extended riding more comfortable. A custom windshield, laminar lip, and lowers offer unparalleled protection from wind buffeting at all speeds, and the stock seat has been replaced with a much more comfortable Drifter 800 seat. Hiway pegs, floorboards, backrest, auxiliary driving lights, and HID headlight round out the additions. The Michelin tires have good tread and are good for about 6 to 8k more highway miles.
