2016 Star Raider

The Raider is Star’s most accomplished custom and the last of its big-bore cruisers. An air-cooled, four-valve, long-stroke pushrod 113-cubic-inch motor with five-speed tranny moves the rolling work of art.

The seat height is a manageable 27.4 inches, while the front end is kicked out defiantly. The frame has 33 degrees of rake, with another six degrees added by the offset triple clamps. The Raider is long and low, with plenty of attitude in its style and motor.
