650 project bobber-esque
Well, thought I would post up here instead of continuing my thread in the new member section.
Bought a new (to me, but might as well be new with only 3600kms on it) v star 650. Decided to make it into a bit of a project bike.
First thing I did was tear down the bike and rebuild the carbs. Rode it like that for a bit, and then decided it needed more of a rumble, so did the 4 hole mod, as new pipes are out of the budget right now.
Today I was scouring the local Facebook marketplace, and came across the cheapest brand new bars ever. The original owner of the bars never used them. Bought them from amazon and decided it wouldn’t fit his project. So $25 later I got some knock off keystones. Installed super easy with no cable mods, and oh boy do they change the look of the bike.
Here are a few pics, and I’ll keep this thread updated as I go along. Next mod is to shave the factory seat to better fit my behind. On the list is also; smaller signals, AIS delete, bar end mirrors, new shorter levers, GAK and re jet, and eventually new pipes
As for levers, does anyone know where I can get some sport bike looking ones? (The adjustable dial kind. Short, black, and would look WAY better on those bars)
