Year:2009
Make/Model: V Star
Eng size:950
Modifications: Custom paint job (candy burgundy and art) Vance and Hines Big Radius 2 into 2 pipes, headlight modulator
Accessories: Kuryakyn ISO Grips (black), Kuryakyn Throttle Boss (also black), Mustang Seat (passenger not installed yet)
Length of time to build: Purchased in October of 2012, ordered the paint job in December, first ride was on 8 May 2012
And the story/inspiration/additional comments: When I was twelve I was introduced to a barbed wire fence by a little 120cc mini bike. It not only hurt like hell (I still have the scars 16 years later) but it scared me away from bikes ever since. I hate being afraid of things, so I finally bought this bike. Needless to say I had no idea how to ride it, so while the paint was being applied I took the MSF Basic Riders Course. Talk about a confidence builder! When it finally came time to take my baby out I was rearing to go! A week and a half, and five hundred miles later my only regret is not jumping back on that little 120cc as soon as I healed up! Bonus points to whomever can point out where the skull comes from :D


***********UPDATE************
I just installed this xXx Big Air Kit from LA Choppers. Another step towards customizing my 950. Next part to come in will be the coil cover made by Low and Mean, which should be here soon I hope!

Thanks for the compliments! When I told then how I wanted it painted, I believe my words were ”I want a simple paint scheme that punches you in the face when you get up close” :D
