Hey! Chris here! Soo..my friend finally persuaded me into buying a cruiser to ride with him. He's been riding a Honda VTX1300R and I've watched him transform his bike from an average looking bike to a gorgeous Cruiser that I can't stop eyeballing! Finally, yesterday we started officially looking, went to the local yamaha store, was debating on a 250..until I sat on it and saw the rest of the beauties laying aroud. I've ridden crotch rockets for some time, but I'm past that and looking to enjoy and cruise.
After leaving the Yamaha store, we found an ad in Lockport, IL with a 2000 V-Star 650 with 7000 miles! Went to go take a look and what a beauty. New tires, had a few mods already floorboards, windshield, saddlebags, nothing crazy but a few nice touches. SOLD!
I'm definitely excited and we started the modding process last night. First thing was removal of the sissy bars. Ordered the Lanzar 700W system to enjoy some music while I ride, LED Contours Motorcycle License Plate Holder from chromeglow.com & finally the Spike Air Intake.
Next up, I'm thinking about removing the windshield, removing the rear tail light cluster and compacting it, making it looks cleaner and less bulky, switching the handle bars to Nostalgic Handle Bars, getting a new seat for one person and setting up that Vance & Hines Short Shot exhaust, heard a youtube clip WOWOWOW!!
Soooo...What do you guys think? All opinions welcome!
