V Star 950 2 years in the making

been pretty much customizing my bike nonstop for the past 2 years, little things here and there, one thing at a time. once i get my re-upholstered seat back in a few days i will be completely done and will post pics of everything with a complete list of mods and parts and such. i can't think of a single thing i ever want to change on it. in the mean time, here's a little teaser of the custom paint job i just put on it. it's bone wrapped in rusted barb wire.

From what I saw before, and now, the guy doin your paint looks to be a cat's ass on paintin Lookin forward to see your finished product Ride safe. (better clarify, cat's ass means very good in my neck of the woods, not sure it means the same thing all over)

Ride Safe, Live Long

whoever started the idea that cat's ass could be translated as a good thing?

OH Oh !... another post jack in this thread

Shitfire, now I heard everything !!

A Yankee calling himself a redneck Wait !!.. you're in Indiana..
You're still a Yankee !!.. How is that redneck country ??

You need to move quite a bit further South to have that moniker apply



Hell, I'm a Texan transplanted to the desert and I still know "dat dem dere boys are jus a ways east o home, not up yonder"



OK OK !! back to the original thread

BEVO........hurry up, now that photo is quite a tease . Can't wait to see how this motif is pulled off.
