Alright, therefore I freshly bought a "06 V-star 650. My very first bike in rather some time. An initial thing ns did was eliminate the decals, tore the carbohydrate apart, and also overall simply cleaned it up. Therefore a tiny about it. Choose it increase for quite cheap. $2000, and also it only had 3600 kms on it! (yes kms, because I live in the good white north) smoking cigarettes deal since the vault owner dropped the in a parking lot, and also it had a few scuffs on it, and also he couldn"t get it running due to the carbs being gummed up.So rapid forward come the ideas I had for this bike. Want to construct something a little different. Type of a bobber, however retaining the passenger seat, as I want to have the ability to have a passenger without thinking about it. What i don"t prefer though, is the tank. I have actually looked at several various options, including; dishing the tank, sportster tank, tank swap. What i have uncovered is that the magna tank will certainly fit through some modification. What i am curious about, is if a various tank will certainly fit. Something like the VLX600 tank? Or miscellaneous from another bike v a separation backbone. Before I gain flamed, I have actually searched broadly on the subject, and have found very minimal answers and also solutions. I perform not prefer the sportster tank being an installed above the backbone, it"s simply not appealing to me. I want something that will certainly cover the backbone, yet still retain some decent liters because that fuel. This is simply the start of this project, together I want to adjust quite a couple of things.
Handlebars being on the peak of the perform alongside the tank. I just want to change the whole look that the bike.Anyway, enough of the lengthy winded post, comment or fire away! but fair warning, if being flamed, i will more than likely just neglect you, as I don"t have time with petty web BS.CheersAnd as always; pics!
