new from charelston, il

hi everyone, i recently just bought my first bike. it is a 2003 1100 vstar. the bike is pretty much stock, besides some slip on exhaust pipes. i have been looking for a sissy bar to help with my wife riding with me. the only thing i can seem to find is a classic fit. i am wondering if the classic sissy bar would fit on my bike?

Welcome from Atlantic Canada, booboo. That's a great choice for your first ride. Got one myself. Lots of power and still easy to handle. From your question I'm guessing you have the custom version. I'm not sure if the classic backrest would work or not but I'm sure someone will chime in. Post a picture of your ride when you get a chance!

Here is a pic of the bike. I have enjoyed every second of it. The previous owner had never cleaned it before so I have been going through it each time washing it. Stinking spokes are covered in dust
