These are some small projects I (and others) have done for the Kawasaki EN500 (Vulcan 500 LTD)

The pretty red thing is the EN500. The ugly old fat thing is the author! (old view) One at right is NEW author! (Amazing what a few heart attacks can do for U)

The BABY BIKE (Wannabeabigbike)IS FOR SALE !

" After a heart attack with a 5-way bypass, 3 strokes, a shattered left wrist, a torn (off) left bicep, a back with (now) EVERY disc bad, a hip joint and shoulder that are bone-on-bone and misc. other tiny problems, it is time to use just 4 whells. SO far at least, still with a motor, and not an electric wheelchair, so PTL! Contact me if interested. It will be with all mods AND original parts, FOB Lompoc,CA. ONLY. STILL with less that 5000 ORIGINAL miles on her! Most of her time was spent in my workshop! I can't use her, so I want someone else that can love her!!

My Mods: (check on them often, as I keep adding improvements or additions to each as I come up with them, or get suggestions from other riders who have done them! (NOT to mention repairing torn up words my pell specker missed!))
