New rider with fairing question!

Hello fellow star bikers,

I'm a new rider, and I was looking at the Memphis Shades bullet fairing for my bike. Only problem is that apparently it's only made for the Custom, and not the Classic, which is what I have. So I was wondering what the major differences are between the custom and classic, and if anyone has any experience with attaching a Bullet fairing to a 2002 V-star 1100 classic? Your expertise would be much appreciated.

Cheers y'all

The head lamp on the custom is smaller and the fork's don't have trim around them like the classic.

Welcome to the forum.

Hi ttb, welcome to the forum. Farmall is correct about the difference between the custom and the classic.
If you're looking for wind protection, the bullet fairing will only give you the bare bones minimum.
I agree with sonysnek, we'd love to see some pics of your machine. Ride safely!
