Coool ride, Yeah there are some heavy hitters on here that have the 1100 and mods a plenty.

So if you need ape hanger parts advise your in the right forum. Actually the best forum for Vstar
bikes and many others too.

Lots of great folks just chompin at the bit to help people just like you.

A big ole family here. So pull up a rocker and have a front porch swing a thon.

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum. Everyone is correct, best forum going with tons of great members and very willing to help one another.
Very nice intro with pics, and that's a great looking 1100.
I'm in north ms, not very far from you. Ride safely, weather permitting, and keep us updated on your progress.

The solo is just the stock seat with the passenger pad and backrest removed. I was waiting on my day tripper to come in and liked the look of it for a few days, that stock seat is terribly uncomfortable the day tripper was a great buy

I am not very fond of the studs that were on the stock seat and backrest so when I got the new seat I figured the studded backrest would look odd I'll attach a picture of before I removed the passenger seat and back rest the studs were a little loud for me gotta get hard bags next to get rid of the studded bags

Welcome from Texas. First thing make sure 12 inchbis what you want most get them then want taller then you are out more money. Get the height you want the first time. Second thing is call Tim B at Metric Magic. He has best prices and his cables prices can't be beat.

Welcome Mike, from southwestern PA. Nice ride ya got there. Although I may be just a bit biased. You might go to Cruisercustomizing.com to look for cables too, as they are running a sale on sets of them right now. And thanks fer the pics. You musta been payin attention whilst you were lurking. Good luck in yer search.
