Ya, I wasn't up to speed. I'm just looking to do custom work and the cheapest easiest way to do it a lot of times is to find bikes that have similar make ups and frankenstein parts between them. If the stryker swing arm/rim is interchangable then a wide tire kit is gonna be much easier to do on the 1300 vstar than buying it from a company.
That's why I'm interested in the parts. Once I get the bike, no eta yet. I'll make some frame measurments. But I'll need the stryker measurements as well. Can one of you guys take a couple for me? Preferably of the swing arm where it connects to the frame. Width, depth. I'm checking part numbers for the stuff to see if there are any simularities.
U can always find those kind of parts. People are always doing pulley/belt swaps or there is a wrecked bike that you can pull some old peices off of. Ebay is good as well as online salvage yards, and of course, forums.
I have a stratoliner rear pulley/belt setup on my Raider and am looking for a headlight off of a victory that won't break the bank. As well as a couple other parts.
Cheap isnt always good & good isnt always cheap..
Did i say that rite? thought id say that cuz it reminded me of it lol
No worries... I cheap as **** too lmao! Soo far ive only spent $350 on my ride and thats just for my scorpio alarm system lol
So far these are the mods that I've done to my raider, I've spent very little so far. About 2 grand. I'm cheap but, not low quality.

I found out today that the frames are almost identical between the 1300 v-star the stryker, the only differences are the spine and the angle of the neck.
That means that most of the parts are interchangable between the two. Rear fender, rear fender stays, swingarm, rear rim, pulley, exhaust, and some other stuff as well. It's good to know.
So that takes the price of putting a wide tire on the 1300 v-star way way down.
I'm not sure about the triple tree and front end assembly. It should work but think it'd be too long because of the angle of the neck, it goes more towards the ground. I think it'd look horrible. However, I am looking at at both a front and rear rim from a stryker as well as both of the low n mean fenders, front and back. I think it'd look cool on that 1300. It'd make it pretty muscular looking. We'll see what happens.
