Google VN900 bobber and just look at all the images you get. From as simple as replacing the seat and rear fender to complete chop jobs. There was a guy on here a month or so ago that did this kind of thing regularly. Sorry, can't remember his name but I remember seeing the picture he posted. I think he was talking about how great it was to work with VN900s because they have all the nice features like fuel injection, etc. that you don't find on old bikes. But they still have the lines and frame of an old hard tail so they look good when bobbed. Anyway, while searching I found this picture. It isn't a Vulcan (I don't think), but you might consider going for this look.
