Putting Sheepskin On Your Seat

A lot of riders complain of an uncomfortable seat on our Road Stars. Not me. I think the stock seat is great – for about 400 miles a day. One thing I really hate about it is getting a case of “Wet Bottom” in the high summer temperatures due to the vinyl seat cover. It’s embarrassing to stop for lunch and walk into a restaurant with a wet rear end.

Robert Clayton’s “Darwin” Custom Paint

Robert Clayton's "Darwin" Custom PaintWell our good buddy Robert Clayton, whose trophy winning Road Star “Darwin” we featured here a couple of weeks ago, has gone and taken a big spill. Robert is OK even though he is pretty banged up (a semi trailer will do that to you) so I thought I would show a close-up of the paint you are likely to never see again.

Reinforcing The Road Star Rear Fender

Reinforce the Road Star FenderThere has been a lot of talk about the rear fender cracking on our Road Stars. I have posted on the Road Star Riders forum a few time on how I reinforced my rear fender to stop the cracks. It’s a very easy mod to do and anyone out of warranty, especially those who have a custom paint job should really do this mod.

Adjusting the Road Star Clutch Cable

Adjust the Road Star Clutch CableYour clutch should be adjusted so that there is about a nickle’s worth of play in the lever, when slight tension takes up the slack in the cable. NOTE: better a little loose (more than a nickel’s worth of play) than too tight.

Introducing Eric Godwin’s seriously customed Road Star that started out its life as quite a good looking Beach Sand Tan model, but with the transformation it has been through it now looks nothing like the original bike! Plus the best part of all is that Eric has done all the wrenching on the bike himself!
