Make sure of the correct part number for the passing light bar for the 1100 classic.  It is different from the custom.  I spent years looking to do the same exact thing.  I finally found one a couple of years ago and did a led install instead.  Not trying to sway you from the original lights that Don has just saying the bar has to be the correct one.

Hello guys,

new to the forums here.

I bought a 2000 V Star 1100 Custom and the dude gave me the original pipes and a set of cruise lights, saying that it came with the bike when he bought it.

seems I am missing the turn lights (lower hanging) on the bar, OR the bar was as is..

now I am wondering if I can modify the bar, have it bent in a way as to not hinder the turning lights, because since it's straight it comes straight and hides the turn lights.

Thanks

the bar for the fog lights is usually on the classic. the classic turn signals will mount right to the stock fog light bar but the custom turn signals do not mount right to the fog light bar. i doubt you will be able to have the bar bent in any significant way without cracking the chrome. could you post a pic of the fog light bar? it may or may not be the stock bar. i'm sure with a bit more info there will be someone that can help you out.

That`s what I thought so,

That it`s stock for the classic...

I`ll try to take a pic tonight and post it tomorrow when I get home

Here`s The bar that was given to Me along with My bike... you guys think I could customize it more in order to bend it so it won't interfere with the turn lights ?

If the bar fits why not just get some Classic turn signals to hang underneath?

Simply because I don't like the look of hanging turn lights.

Besides... it's a custom model, that's why I was inquiring if I could customize stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye smile

I thought it might give Me more visibility when riding, I don't know about you guys, but here people drive like a**es and I`d like to be more visible.

so, if I gather the opinions correctly, it COULD be doable, but I would most certainly crack the chrome if I have it bent....

Might be worth a try.

Also I am looking for a luggage rack, any pointers ?

Thanks

i moved my fog lights to the top of my engine guards. helps with visibility and  cleaned up the front of my 1100 classic.
