      A fine example of what a motorcycle should look like.

        mnm...gee i dunno...maybe if it had some flames shooting out from the back of the wheels and some monkey bars with those pointy studs sticking out all over the place (especially the windshield) and a trailer hitch with optional 5th wheel or deep sea diving bell...just a little something to spruce it up a might...maybe rake out the front end a bit and install some of those pipes what stick up behind the passenger's head so folks can see you in traffic...speaking of traffic, i don't see an air horn or compressor but maybe you have it hidden under the seat...i like the idea of no passenger seat, make her sit facing you on the handle bars so you can keep an eye on that stuff, you won't have to hang an air freshener that way but stay away from the mexican restaurants...perhaps you should just visit my utube channel and watch my world famous "what's wrong with your motorcycle and why you should do things the way i do" series of videos...disregard alllll the negative comments and vulgarities as some folks just can't stand it when faced with compelling empirical evidence of their own foolishness...glad you asked what we thought and please take my review in the spirit it was given...zing of wonder...

        Good job! One of the best looking White bikes I have seen. I'm not into white wall tires, but they sure look good on your bike.

          Now let's see if some guy or gal with a pocket full of money thinks the same way.

        Wow very nice and classy. Very nicely done. Is that an aftermarket rear rotor installed? JC

          I believe it is...if I remember the original was so badly worn and pitted that the brake job had to include a new rotor or I'd be wasting my time.

          What mirrors are you running? Do you have the turn Signals wired? Clean and simple. That will be my next bikes look.

              I'd only say this on here and no where else. I paid $2,700 USD for the bike, but when I wrote up the ad on CL I seriously pushed the pricing envelope based on what the local market had to offer and conversations with interested locals. So don't have cow you guys, but I put it out there at $6,800 just to see if I get any response.

              Hell yea go for it! You know what P.T. Barnum said about suckers. I wanted to add that seldom do you see the rear fender follow the tire so perfectly. IIRC you did the flip and grind didn't you?

              Typically I'd be more reserved and keep it in the NADA ball park, but I'm pitching it as an artistic endeavor with masculine overtones, so the skies the limit. No, I went with the Baron's relay arm and like you said it's a perfect fit between the tire and fender.

            I hope you get it! It's worth what ever someone will pay!!

              Well we've got the perfect storm brewing for a high priced local sale...if it happens. We've got a small town with nothing to do and nowhere to spend your money plus an ongoing MAJOR road construction project paying big bucks. That might fatten up a few wallets and get me a sucker....uh buyer.

            The Road Star has major stunning looks, Great job!

              Looks good Mr. Mike. I send mine down to you so you can finish it Valley warming up and the beast tank is in the pant. I think it will be yellow and blue with the desing of the Barons bike shown in their lowering ad.
              Talk soon.

                  I really can't take credit for the look of the bike as much as I'd like to. The red 07 I bought and sold last year gave me all the styling cues I needed to pull this off. It was a hit with everyone that saw it and fetched a pretty penny at sale time so I thought I'd try it again. I'll have to wait and see what happens with my plagiarized version.

                  Hey , watch it, my bike isn't much different than that one, and I'm not a chick, I'm a poser like you.

                  I don't think sooo.

                Looks great! Only thing i would change is to get rid of that bed pan airbox. I hate that thing.

                  I like it. I think it matches the engine perfectly.

                  I did swap out the stock air box for slick K&N, but found out right away I'd have to re-jet the carb if I left it on, so I slapped the stock box back on rather then go down that road.

                You're not fooling anyone... NO one is ever really done. It just doesn't happen..... Like, why keep the fork tube covers, if it's essentially a stripper/bobber? They MUST go!
