August 2011 Bike Of The Month

Owner: Aussielad
This is my 1998 XVS 650A Dragstar Classic 650cc.



Modifications: It has Custom paint, toffee-gold metallic with Pearl White metallic and black and silver pinstriping. Jama Slash Cut exhaust, Beach Bar style Handlebars, Custom Saddle, Chrome edging to fenders and tank.
Accessories: Crash bars, Kuryakin Grips, pegs, brake and gear peddles, antique front fender light, tombestone tailight, airhorns, restored and restudded Willie & Max saddlebags, leather handlebar/fork toolbag.
Length of time to build: 5 Months.
I have always loved cruisers. I bought this bike as a partial restoration after a long time away from bikes, had to do some respraying and thanks to the U.S. I was able to get all the aftermarket pieces needed to finish the bike.

Congratulations Aussielad! Let's ride to the closest watering hole and i'll buy you the drink of your choice. Just give me a couple days to mount these floats and calculate how much gas i'm gonna need.....
