Mike’s Yamaha V-star 650.

IMG_7225 Our first bike post because some of you have been asking!

I have known Mike since we were young lads and he was always on a bike. At age 5 Mike started to take home trophies from BMX competitions. At age 23 he chose to purchase his first motorcycle. Working as a mechanic at a local Recreational Vehicle dealership, he picked up his first bike at a good price. A 1998 Yamaha V-star 650. Mike immediately began to black it out and tear off unwanted parts. He began re-wiring and relocating certain components. For only owning it for 4 months, this is how it currently sits. Plans are in the air for what is to be done to it over the winter but Mike is certain it will look different come spring.
