Randall's Super Vulcan is an exquisite custom, especially when you consider what the bike looked like when it was purchased in 1994. At the time, Kawasaki's Vulcan Classic 1500A wasn't exactly an aesthetic paragon - if ever there was a motorcycle that represented a dearth of visual style, the 1500A was it. Its tremendous motor however, prompted wife, Maralyn, to purchase the Vulcan for Randall as a birthday present. After a year of happily riding on back of the stock bike, Maralyn decided to get her own ride. Randall couldn't have asked for a better scenario. "It gave me the freedom to make the Vulcan totally mine," says Randall, and he ripped into his bike with abandon, spending three years and some $50k rebuilding the erstwhile hot rod. He was determined to transform the troll into a treasure, no matter how many obstacles he encountered. And there were many.
