Xvs 650 V-star

I assembled this for my ex wife over the 2 past winters.
I won't say I built it, seeing what a lot of guys here are building.
I did a lot of fine tuning and adapting, but most stuff were bought for the V-star, though very little was bolt on

The thing is that over here in Denmark you're in a shitload of trouble if you start altering the frame, so you're pretty limited when building.
We put on an AME fork - that's the only (legal) option over here.
Tank, fenders, seat and exhaust are from West End.
Pegs and handles from XO Prodox.
Speedo from Dakota Digital.
Intake and frontlight from somewhere - don't remember where
And a lot of adapters and doo-dah's to make everything fit - some by me, some by a buddy, who was so kind to let us use his machine shop for the build

I assembled it in the winter 10-11 and just rattle can'd it for her to ride it one season before finishing paint, which then was done in the winter 11-12

What a fantastic gesture Dash - No way you can compare a bike to a cheeseburger
