  • Finally getting around to finishing "new" red bike

    Bought this for $800 (leak at cylinder head cover spacer gasket) and included gaskets and two used heads complete. Sold $900 worth of parts off of it and now it's a mostly stock simple Roadstar. Will have stock seats and short sissy bar... All seats/pad factory matching studded... Cobra longshots
    ​​​​​​, jetted carb and set up for pumpless, K&N air cleaner and Emgo breather, Kuryakan ISO Grips, Barnett clutch.

    Had to replace head gasket, new intake manifold, oil and filter, transfer case oil, brake fluid flush, new needle valve and cleaned carb and jetted correctly, Barons PMS, checked and adjusted everything etc. Hope to put it all back together this week with a real heel-toe shifter (had custom toe only Star shifter). May keep, may sell....have literally zero money in it after selling all the stuff that came with it (and have spare heads still). First two pics of how it is now, other lick of how it came when I brought it home.

      You just have to be patient, scour Craigslist daily, and have cash ready at all times.

    A buddy from Texas told me about it and it was 4 hours north of me in Michigan. Guy tried to adjust valves and didn't do it right... Reused gasket and it leaked. He got frustrated and wanted it gone. Bike seems pretty much perfect. I fixed all the little stuff and ready to put back together.

          2000 clean title 2 owners 45k miles excellent shape. All original paint in great condition no dents/dings/scrapes... Had a ton of good parts I removed and sold...

          Full Silverado windshield and bracket

          Non OEM sissybar pad and luggage rack

          Starter chrome cover and 4 in pull back risers (put on my purple bike)

          I also have the spare set of cylinder heads and gaskets the PO bought thinking he would need them. Paid $800 and sold $900 worth of parts.

          I installed new intake manifold, new jets/adjustable needle, K&N air cleaner, Barons PMS, stock seats and risers, stock turn signal bar, reebuilt/cleaned starter, adjusted decompression solenoid, changed transfer case fluid, flushed brake lines with brake cleaner and then fresh fluid, removed the relocated fuel pump and went pumpless (grizzly needle valve), relocated choke cable, cleaned out tank and petcock filters and carb inlet filter (and entire carb), installed stock rear pegs, got stock sissybar and pad, new plugs, and will seafoam carb and exhaust ports just before changing oil.
