Hello from Cali

Just got rid of my 2002 Yamaha with 60,000 miles and got me a 1999 V Star 650 custom with only 13,000 miles. Such a more comfortable ride.

Welcome from southwestern PA. I agree, very clean ride ya got there. Looks more like a custom, "Classic" to me though.

Thank you, very much different feel in power from my R1. After riding 3 hours up and back to street vibrations last year, I had to get me a cruiser. How can I tell if it is actually a "classic"?

Full fenders front and back, Chrome covers on forks, floorboards and teardrop mirrors It's a Classic.
Customs forks are uncovered, short back fender/ small front, smaller headlight rectangle mirrors and foot pegs.

this and that, one thing or other.about the same.
