Intro

My name is Jeff, I have a 2005 1100 V star Classic. I bought it from a local dealership here in Albany with 2 thousand miles for $4299. I am not a big fan of the color (Gold and black) and will be painting it hopefully in the next week or two 'sunburst metallic orange' whch is basiclly volcanic orange. So far I have HK Stripper exhaust, drag bars, Clear Alt intergrated tail light. Chrome levers and misc chrome parts. Coming up will be Chubby kit and having all my work done at RCC (local custom shop). It has been there for a few weeks with a front wheel lock up issue and it has been rainign on and off for three weeks.

The rain here has kept the bike from being tested out to see if the issue is fixed. But since it is still at shop a HID kit is being installed. I put on a smaller headlight and got rid of light bar but didn't ike the smaller light and going back to OEM until I put on a billet type in the summer.
Here is a pic

Thanks. Next up is paint, switching floor boards to pegs to match hand grips and possibly Chubby kit and Tach.

I have been having this debate with myself whether I should keep the integrated tail light (brand new put on a month ago) or go with the tear drop tail and some how do integrated lights in tear drop.
