Look for two more Star models soon, the Screw and the Nut. Both with special seats.

Complete with ugly fuel tank seams! The "Screw" model's special feature will become apparent at resale time when it sells for $1900 less thus offsetting the $9 purchase price advantage.

At first I didn't want to spell it out, but this is MO after all.

Maybe this will start a trend. The Polaris "Lockwasher". The Vulcan "Easy-Out".

Personally, I think the Bolt looks great. Nice proportions and no stupid fat tires. Of the metric cruisers, I think Star's doing it best.

They've perfected the Harley copy.

They are missing one thing. The bolt-on 1200cc cylinders.

I know this is a really un-cool thing to say, but that's a pretty goddamn nice looking bike.

Yes, it's a Harley copy. But if my wife turned herself into a copy of Kate Upton, I wouldn't complain.

Thank you for the simultaneous laugh and mini erotic fantasy reverie!

Er, I'm not sure you would care for the incredibly high maintenance. Might be fun to find out though.

And of course the bolt looks good. It looks exactly like a Harley.
