Hi from the SF Bay Area

Hi all, new to the forum. Currently converting a 2000 V-Star 1100 Classic into a bobber/drag bike. Making good progress - any input would be appreciated. Looking for ideas/options for the following:
- Black Headlight.
- Conversion options for floor board foot controls to regular foot pegs.
- Very short/stubby rear fender
Any input appreciated!
Thanks

Welcome Twinzer. Same year and color as mine. Interesting to see what it would look like as a bobber.

Hi Twinzer, welcome to the forum. Now that my garage is finally up and scheduled to be wired up, I'll be getting back to my Virago 750 bobber project. Looking good on your project there, keep us updated and ride safely!
