Awesome bike!
By JJD(Owner), Feb. 15, 2009

Great Bike
By Harold Bell(Owner), Jul. 7, 2010
I recently bought an 04 Vulcan Classic 1600 with windshield, saddlebags, and lots of chrome. Paid 5500.00 for it. Had 6400 miles on it. What an awesome bike. I love it. My wife likes it, all I need now is a sissy bar so she can lean back without losing her. Has a lot of power and very reliable. Read Full Review
