New introduction

Hi, guys. I ride a 1999 V-Star 1100 Custom. I've started doing a little but of modifications, such as removing the AIS, installing custom taillight and turn signals, and swapping grips, but now I'm looking at doing some more in depth custom work. My plans are to change out the rear fender, install a 21" wheel, and install a spring solo seat. I actually came across this forum after seeing a picture of Sick Mick's V-Star, which is very close to what I've pictured in my head for a while now. I'm hoping that as i go along with my project, I'll be able to get some good tips from the experienced people on here. Thanks for having me!

- Justin

Welcome from Atlantic Canada, Justin. Sounds like quite a project. I'm sure you'll get lots of helpful advice from the members here. Post some pics of your ride when you get a chance.

Hi Justin, welcome to the forum. Great looking bike you got there. Wish I had half the talent of Sick Mick. Ride safely and we’re looking forward to seeing your finished product.
