Newbie here

Folks, my second Yamaha.Sold my VStar 650 last year and just picked up a nice 2003 VStar 1100 classic. Love the bike and the style! Lots of clean up to do (already did some such as removing the bags and fringes on the levers)
The only problem with this bike is a big dent on the rear fender left lower side
Thinking about getting a gangster rear fender and replace the OEM...
Other than that the bike is PERFECT! Love it!

G'Day HVStar, beautiful looking bike, have not seen one in those colour tones before. Welcome to the forum, plenty of good info.

That's a really, really, bad pickup line. I mean:

Bevo to cute young thing: "a ganster fender would look great on your rear."

Cute young thing to Bevo: "Oh yeah dipstick? Well an Indian fender ornament would look really great shoved up your...."

See where this whole thing isn't going to work?

Bevo, you really need to get out more...

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the site Hvstar! That is a very nice looking bike. What type of fender were you thinking of putting on?
