New here but not a new bike

Hello I am new to the community.

I am the owner of a 1999 650 V Star Classic. I am actually the 6th owner of this bike, prior to my ownership in '05 she had a very poor maintenance record, parts have been removed, missing, or just broken. Ownership records show first owners to actually be the state of California. She and I are working on better than new condition asap.

Welcome! It's always nice to breath some new life into a neglected
older machine, the results can be very satisfying. Have fun.
Post some before and after pics.

Now 2010 V STAR 950 T
Former bikes were
1982 Yamaha XJ650 Maxim

Welcome.

Likewise welcome Dargafey. I only joined this forum a few days ago. I am restoring a 98 650 Dragstar (although it says VStar on the tank) and it is rewarding watching it all come together. Good luck with your project.
