  • My 2000 Roadstar Build

    I figured I'd show what I have done so far in the last 2 years I have owned this thing and finally rode it around the block just last weekend for the first time. Picked her up for $400. Had rusted out Vance and Hines Pipes on it and a gas tank that had about 1/2" of rust in her. To get her running I borrowed the gas tank off the Kawasaki KZ650 for testing purposes. Once I knew she ran, I ended up pulling the motor to paint it black. Sourced a dented tank of ebay and did my best to fill the dents. There is still a crease in the tank but I'm not worried about it one bit. Ended up doing a fat spoke 21" Harley wheel with the spacers from Smokescreens. (Thanks again!) Got some Kromewerks 14" apes and a Baron extended cable kit for an 08 Roadie. Minor things to make all those cables work. And I got them dirt cheap. Front fender had a rust hole up front to I went with a Baron front fender. Added a Baron BAK as well. Went cheap on the exhaust with a Mac Fat Stakkers. (another close out special) Fitment was terrible but it sounds good. Avon Grips, Kuryakyn signal lights, Led Headlight and Brake light. Also got me a Goldwing shock and kept the pump. I have a handlebar mount momentary switches so I can adjust the preload on the fly. Im sure there is plenty more I am forgetting but figure I'd get this post started.

      That looks really good. Nice balance of contrast of colors and chrome.

              Just picked up my gauge cover from Space Coast Plating. They stripped the heavily corroded chrome off my cover. She will be painted black.

                Yikes, that was in pretty poor shape.

                Thanks, but I think it will look good black instead of the chrome.

                  So the tip of the speedo needle was broken and I broke the fuel needle taking it off to do a green led light strip for the illumination. So i cut down and opened up the holes on some Chevy gauge needles. Also rebuild the odometer. Couldn't read anything when I got it. Cleaned it up and used Linear Polarizing film. Gauge face is crap and would love to find a better one.
