2016 Star V Star Custom | Buyer's Guide
2016 Star V Star Custom

With a hardtail look, shaft drive, bobbed front fender, and a ducktail in the rear, the 2016 Star V Star Custom is certainly a unique member of the Star line.

The air-cooled motor, dual 28mm Mikuni carbs, wire wheels, drum rear brake, and chrome exhaust add to the authentic look of the Custom. Displacing 40 cubic inches and sporting a short stroke motor, the V Star Custom is certainly capable on the freeway and light enough to enjoy in town. A shaft drive keeps maintenance down and reliability up.
