Today, we are going to take a look at a VStar! These bikes are great to customize! If you are paying attention, im a bobber guy. These make excellent bobbers!
Lets take a look at Mark’s. Mark has a beautiful bike on his hands. Look how it is sitting on the ground! That would be his air ride suspension. She lays down!
Mark has been able to add the air ride, and keep it unseen. Her wheels are powered coated. This is the best way to go. Its hard to chip. He has went the complete paint journey, with this one. By completely stripping the bike down yo the frame, Mark has been able to paint the frame. A lot of people, they dont take it that far. They paint the fuel tank, and that is almost all. The colors are also excellent matches.
Flake, pearl, flip flop, chameleon, I love them all! As you see here, he has added Paint Huffer metal flakes to his custom tank. This tank sits on top of the frame. To me, that gives a better stance. The tank sits up high, giving it a more custom built look. Then, it isnt easy to get a peanut for a VStar. He as doon an excellent job at fitting this one to his bike!
To add to the look and comfort, he has added a set of 16 inch apes! For taller rider, this is a perfect setup! If you are not as tall, it is still a great look, and comfortable ride. How fast is that ride?
Mark has stepped it up, when it comes to speed. First, look at this Vstar! He has done an excellent job with everything! This is a top of the line bobber! Everything is slimmed down, the frame is chopped, the suspension is replaced, the pipes are cut, the intake is custom, and that paint! This is an awesome build. Let’s get to the go fast! This bike is an 1100, but he has stepped up the engine, along with the look!
Man! Those pipes are hot, and not just because of exhaust fumes! It seems he might have lost a tie, but the wrap is done properly. If you look, he has started from the bottom and went to the top. Wrap can damage your pipes, wrapped top to bottom. If you wrap from top to bottom, the laps will hold water. This will put rust lines on your pipes, and cause the wrap to rot.
This VStar also includes dual custom intakes. This style is an excellent way to go in places with sand and weather. Volciety stacks are safe. The filter on them, it does keep out junk, but not like this. Always remember, you need to jet your carbs when doing exhaust and intake!
6sigma Jet Kits is one of the best places to get the parts for your carburetor builds. I have purchased ebay kits. They don’t not compare. 6sigma has taken it a step up. They offer a great selection. You can get carb parts for any bike. It is as simple as entering your make and model. Then, they take in account for your altitude, allowing for better performance.
6 really does have the best information. They send it out with every kit. Their pamphlet includes tricks to get a better throttle response, to how to do every step of the build. This pamphlet is detailed enough for any skill level of builders. 6sigma is the way to go. Mark has went well passed this boost in power.
A lot of bikes, taking off the cover of the engine is pointless. You cannot get the parts for boring it out, or high lift cams. Matt has done this rebuild to include high lift cams! He has really done as much as possible! A VStar is a great option, when it comes to building a custom bike! Lets look at a couple!
Look at that front wheel! This is beautiful bike! Everything about it says that is Naughty! Great work!
Tom proves that the straight bars are an excellent choice for a VStar! The original flow also of the original tank, is a smooth look. Another great build!
This VStar has had the sissy bar added, some white walls, exhaust, and engine work. James has also included a nice se of neons for the night rides! Beautiful!
If you dont like Chrome, do you really like motorcycles? Chrome is a lot of work to keep up. Streling has put in that elbow time, keeping this bike clean and amazing!
With her head held up high, and her back end poised to go, you have to love the look of the VStar! Korey has done an excellent job at showing this! These bikes are nice, factory, or custom.
