  • New non RS project

    Figured I'd get another project to help pay for my other multiple projects. Picked up a 2005 V-Star 1100 Classic for the grand price of $250. Brand new Commander 2 tires on her as well. Guy must have twisted the throttle while trying to start it. Twisted the starter and sheared the gear off the starter. One way is locked up as well. Then a co worker says I have a 05 vstar parts bike. Needs a stator and missing the gas tank and seat. But you can have it for free. So now I got all the parts for a quick flip. (Hopefully) Parts bike also came with oem saddlebags and an oem Silverado windshield.

    Now if I could only fit it in the garage. Theres the 2000 Roadie, a 1970 Yamaha HS1, 1980 Kawasaki KZ650, Suzuki DR 350, Suzuki DS 80, Honda CRF110, Honda Rubicon 500, and a Honda Rancher 420. I think I have a problem, or just need a bigger garage.

    Yes it sounds like you need a good garage stretcher.

      Yep, the only issue I see here is the space to store and work on them.

        Well, the parts bike is on my trailer. Soon to be on the side of the house. Once she is stripped down and parted out Ill bring the other one home. Luckily I can keep it in the warehouse at my work.

        Better yet! A place to store it that you're not paying for.

          Nice!
          I picked up a poorly running V Star 1100 Silverado last fall.
          The seller tried to 'fix it up' but had no clue what he was doing.
          Had controls so screwed up that you couldn't reach any of the left switches, he had the mirror mounted between that and the grip. LOL
          I won't even go into what he did to chop down the windshield but it looks like he used a sharp rock instad of a saw.

          Got it running really well and tried to sell it but got sick of the lowball offers so I said screw it, and I bobbed it.

          Still not complete but it's getting there.
          It's actually a really fun bike to ride.
          WIDE OPEN Yamaha Speedstar pipes so it's seriously snotty loud. LOL

              I'm telling him I want a refund!!!!

            Well, got the 650 stripped down. Saved all the electrical components, Headlight assembly, Factory Windshield and bags. Sold basically the rolling chassis with the engine and locked up carbs for $150. So one more thing out of here and a couple bucks in my pocket.
