Old Iron on a Deluxe

I'm new to this forum as I just got a smoking deal on what I call "Garage Jewelry." A beautiful blue 2013 V Star 1300 Deluxe with only 1008 miles on her. And man am I loving this bike. Can't wait to make my mods and learn from many here how to make her even better. Ride safe out there you all.

Welcome glad you found it. I like the term garage jewelry. I need as much help cleaning up my garage as i can get. I am into old and shiny things. Such as my 01 1100 classic.

Thanks for the welcomes. And yes I do ride often and safe. In fact I've had this bike for just over a week and have almost doubled the mileage. It now has just under 2,000 miles

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Beautiful ride you got there and it's nice to see you're one to take your jewelry out and use it. Not much more I can add about this forum - best one I've ever been on.

Again many thanks from all of you for the great welcome.

More about the "Garage Jewelry"
The guy I bought it from, I believe went thru his mid life crisis cause he bought it used 4 years ago with only 500 miles on it and then he only put 508 miles while he had it. He was the chief of police in a small town and told me he had 6 kids. The kids I saw where young, so I'm not surprised he could only get 508 miles on it in 4 years. I just love finding these garage gems and then rising the heck out of these new bikes.
