Back in the game...
I sold my V Star about 2 1/2 years ago and have been bikeless since. I just worked out a deal with a guy last night and will be meeting him today to pick up an '05 1100 Classic. Coincidentally, I woke up this morning to one of the auto-emails from starbikeforums saying I hadn't been around in a while, so I figured I'd drop back by. Anyways, he's done some performance mods to it and it only has 14,000ish miles. I'm planning to do some pretty serious body mods to it with the end result being a fully dressed out bagger.
I will post some pictures of the progress once I get started with all of that; but, I have a few questions, first.
Are there any mods that are just 100% necessary for the bike to run better, longer, more powerfully, etc.?
I don't want a nice looking turd, I want to build a solid running bike that looks good, too.
