I have a 2003 v star 1100 custom and it has a 5 3/4 headlight. I bought a 7 inch led headlight for it so I can upgrade but cant find a v star bucket for it. OEM of aftermarket. Any suggestions?  THANKS

 Have you tried eBay?

Here's one!

If you use the OEM bucket from a Classic you will probably need a Classic headlight stay to mount it to lower triple tree. P/N5BN-23174-01-00 

you will probably want to buy a mount that is made specifically to bolt on to the Vstar 1100.  There are probably a few places who make them. Take a look at Headwinds out of Phoenix.

Then you have a big variety of buckets to choose from that fit a standardized 3/4" wide mounting post that many Harley buckets use.  I use a headlight bucket from a Fat Boy, and love the retro look.   

 

I also designed a mounting adapter that does the same but uses the original V Star 1100 custom brackets.  I can send you the 3D design if you want.

Just get an 1100 Classic bucket. You can modify the mount to fit the Custom pretty easily.

I also cant find anything to hold in the new headlight. This has been a big pain.
