New to Forum

Hey everyone, never really been on a forum before and have been reading alot on V Star bobbers, so figured I'd join one and this one seems like one of the best. I've been ridding since I was 8 and have owned Harley's to Hondas. Currently picked up an 06 V Star 650 Classic from a guy for $900 bucks cause he couldn't figure out why it wouldn't crank. After testing realized the stator had gone out and tore the bike down fixed the stator and coils did a tune up on anything I could and put her back together. Runs like a top, about to add an Roadburner exhaust, baron shield big air, and jet the carbs. Then gonna bob it. One issue is I hate floorboards, I'm not tall so boards put my ankles at a very uncomfortable position, but I learned that its not that easy to change V star floorboards to pegs, so I am looking for someone to swap their custom pegs and brackets for my classic floorboards and brakets.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Sounds like you got a good deal on your 650. We'd love to see some pics of it. Be sure to post in the Vstar section as well. There's quite a few 650 owners here, and everyone is willing to help. Keep us updated as you bob it out. Ride safely!

Welcome Howlank! This is a great group. You might want to post your request more specifically in the Wanted section as not all our members read the introduction posts. In return for that small gem of wisdom I require only that you provide us with a little motorcycle porn and show us your pretty new 650.

PS, Fleabay is another good place to try and find used pegs.
