Stopped to check out a bike a few miles down the street from my house.

Its a red 1998 Royal star.... with less than two thousand miles on the odo.

Windshield and saddle bags. Looked the bike over and heard it run (no plates). Im really liking this bike.

Will have to see if I can work out a deal, and if not Im sure I can find another one fairly easy.

What a beautiful machine!

I know all the possible issues with a 20 year old bike, but the drive train is hardly broken in, its like new.

Take any pics of it? That's very low mileage for the year, keep us posted on what you decide.

The only thing about it that looks different from the stock 1998 Royal Star photos, is the cylinders are red.

They dont look like they were painted, they look like they were somehow anodized red. Ive never seen that before.

Maybe they were painted with red lacquer... It looks great on the bike.

Maybe it was owned by a Shriner, and he only took it out twice a year to ride in the parade with the minibikes and dune buggies!
