"Be Someone Build"
I wanted to start my very own thread sharing my progress on my bike. I have found that I enjoy coming across other peoples builds and seeing the changes on their bikes, so maybe some one out there will enjoy mine one day lol.
A little bit about me... I am from Houston Tx , hence the "be someone" name (its a Houston thing) and picked up a 1995 Vulcan 800A out in the country about a month ago.
It is my first Kawasaki and from reading several threads, you guys have put my mind to ease with all the troubleshoot, mods, and maintenance information there is. I love working on my own bikes so I have already been using the threads on here, so I want to say thanks!
Attached are the pictures of how I picked up the vulcan.
I will add that the pictures make the bike look nice and clean for its age but when I did pick it up the guy had it stored away in his shed and it was filthy.
It would start up but was idling very high, carb was leaking gas as well and had been from the looks of it because you could see dried up sludge or something on the motor.
Took it any way because I knew what ever I was getting was going to be a fixer upper with the money I had and I wanted the sportier model versus the classic, plus I didnt want to take a perfect bike and tear it apart.
I also attached a picture of the bridge in Downtown Houston that read "Be Someone"
(this little vulcan wants to be some one!)
