Wife just got a V-Star 1100

My wife just upgrade from Honda Shadow 750 to a V-Star 1100. I may need some help replacing the footpegs with floorboards. I would like to convert to an oem floorboard if possible so then we can get the covers that she wants. We are tight on money right now, so we will have to do things in little spurts.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Any pics of her bike to share with us? We have lots of 1100 owners as members here.

welcome.

Maybe someone who wants to convert from floorboards to pegs will trade you.

I just got a 07 Custom with floorboards 2 weeks ago with the same paint for my wife. She had a 03 classic and loved the floorboards but not the fenders. This one she loves. Has a hypercharger and cobra pipes. Good luck with yours.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. She's gonna love the 1100. Not liquid cooled like the Shadow so it might be a little warmer, but not too bad.
