I'll post some pics as soon as I can get them on my computer. Thanks for the welcome guys! I work a full time job (that I hate)...and I'm a volunteer firefighter on the side (which I love!). I'm 37 years old and have been riding some form of bike all my life. My last bike (a Harley) was my first ever cruiser. I loved the bike...just not the payments...lol. I just bought a '99 V Star 650 Classic for $2500. Only has 10,000 miles. I already love the way it sits...just wishing I had the power of the other bike back. I could deal with a lot less take off if I could find a way to make it not sound like it's screaming at 65mph. Don't know if you can re-gear these shaft drives or not? But...it is what it is. At least it's paid for!
