  1. Hey Guys,

    Finally found a nice V Star XVS650a Classic today, as soon as it started it knew it was the one. Paid a deposit, the bike is getting delivered to my house on Monday (i only just got my L's).

    Cant wait to head out on Monday night, i hope this Sydney weather clears up!

    I will be sure to attend any learning sessions very soon!

    Nice bike - white wall tyres, looks like Vance and Hines Short Shots, no wonder it sounded nice. I had the same reaction when mine started with those pipes on. Mustang seat too?
  3. I think the white walls really set off the bike, however i think they will need to be replaced soon so im going to look around for some replacements in Sydney. No matter how many H&V Short Shots youtube clips i listened to it just does not compair to what it sounds like in real life..!

    Not sure if it is a Mustang seat? i thought i was original? I was going to shop around for a single seat while im on my L's / P's ... unless i end up getting a sissy bar and some saddlebags.
  4. If it's a Mustang, it should have Mustang embossed on the fuel tank end of the seat. The original ones are rounded at the back, the Mustangs have more of a right-angle effect that your bum sits into, with the pillion seat providing a bit of support for your lower back. I might be wrong though, it could be stock. What year bike is it?
  5. She is an 07, ill have to check out the seat once its delivered on Monday!
