Greetings!

I bought a V-Star 1300 to replace a stolen Dyna Wide Glide. Wife wouldn't let me replace the loan to replace the bike with another Dyna. The 1300 is a decent bike. Now working on getting the bars and seat to match up to the Dyna standard! The original saddlebags were burned out on the right side, due to stupid muffler mod. Fortunately, the dealer had a brand new set still in the box in the attic and threw them in. After a Power Commander and Autotune, I installed the bags. Also added a trunk and customized 3" extended controls.
