V-star 650 in Seattle, WA

Hi Guys (and Gals),

I picked up a 1999 V-Star 650 that I'm doing some "bobber-like" mods for a winter project.

I'm going to need some advice as I tear this thing down and re-build.

Please say hello...

Thank you,

Tom (in Seattle)

Welcome to the forum Tom from a neighbor up the street in Mountlake Terrace. I have a 2007 VStar Classic (same color) in tact. Hope to see you on the road later in the year. Good luck on your winter project.
