Description

Custom-built bike based on a 2008 V-star 650. Extensive work has gone into building this bike! People will hear you coming and stop to watch you ride by. Absolutely incredible bike in terms of looks and performance.

Approximately 100lbs was taken off the rear to make it a bobber style, not only did this enhance the look but the reduced weight gives the bike much more get up and go than your average 650. At first glance the ape hanger handlebars are not for everybody but once you sit on the bike they just make sense. Given the slope and position of the seat you need the bars to be up higher for comfort, if they were lower you would be hunched over and get a sore back after a few minutes, Additionally, they allow you to hang your arms and have the relaxed badass look as your ride through town.

Vance and Hines pipes are one of those things that you need to hear to understand. most V-stars are relatively quiet and are nothing to turn your head at. The pipes on this bike tick all the boxes, sitting at idle they have a low rumble uncharacteristic for this size of bike. As you accelerate the rumble gets louder and if you punch it the bike has a beautiful 'Bark' to it. While the bike is loud it will not wake up your neighbors 5 streets away, allowing you to be respectful when you need to and show off when you want to.

I bought this bike to fulfill my dream of riding a motorcycle along the coast of Vancouver Island. driving along the ocean with the breeze carrying the saltwater smell was everything I'd dreamed of. I've now moved to the Okanagan and hope that this bike can help someone else fulfill. their dreams
