Welcome aboard I agree with the rest. Give us some pics and we could tell you what it used-to-might-could-be

well lets give you a little background on me LOL

19 years ago I had a major accident in Germany came off a 85 kwack on the autobahn (no one likes to hear this but its the past and i'm still alive ) but it did stop me from getting back on a bike for along time till last year

back in 01 I moved from England to the place I'm at now in Missouri
got married and had kids

last year the ol lady had health problems and I needed something to take my mind off things so a little 1979 XS400 came to me begging to be rebuilt.. I did everything got it back on the road and was going to sell it LOL but the bug bit my a$$ again and I rode that bike all over and still have it,

now I got this 03 v-star this weekend needs some TLC but I will get it done
needs driving light replaced and headlight surround

mods I don't know just yet looking for ideas and it's going to be repainted
ideas feel free to give me some LOL

Vectra - Welcome from STL!

Looks like a nice ride - and definitely the Classic model (with rear chrome tip added). Scroll through the vstar pic thread for ideas and we'll add some I'm sure
