one day the builder of this bike, josh from tail end customs, thought to himself, “self, how can i make a bloated yamaha v-star look cool?” it didn’t take long for ideas to start flowing. i told him not to lick that stamp…
josh wanted something low, mean, and racy. so he slammed the *** (a popular thing in the montrose, castro, and any time the village people are spinned by the dj), threw on a 21″ front wheel, and dropped the front end (the curse of the cougars). he then threw some clip-ons and put some clean switches in the triple trees to keep the clutter off the bars.
at this point josh modified the pipes, installed a spiked cone air filter and added a jet kit to “open this b*tch up and let her breathe.” his buddy mike to laid some slick black paint with silver flake racing stripes and “84” on the sides of the tank. why 84? george orwell and mind control? it’s so secret josh is not telling. therefore, it’s about mind control.
of course he had to add one of his patented custom power piston tail light light/bracket combos.
josh then hit ebay and his v-star bobber sold the first day. a dude named leo gave him a call and said “bro, i need a chopper-style bike to take to the lone star tally this weekend.” josh replied, “i think i might be able to help you out.” an hour went by and josh thought leo was one more dude who talks more than he accomplishes. then the phone rings.
“man that sh*t is dope! when can i come get it?”
later that day leo came to get the “night stalker.” he loved it and said, “it looks so much better in person.” he asked what the 84 meant so josh asked him, “well, what does it mean to you?” leo replied that ’84 was the year he was born. josh laughed and said, “well then, that’s why i made it!”
when i saw the following video, which is a great production, i messed with josh because it shows the bike has l.e.d. lights like some redneck harley “chopper:”
in response to my teasing, he told me he knows a lot of people don’t like l.e.d. lighting but he doesn’t give a sh*t. if you don’t like them then go ahead and put down a deposit and he’ll build you a bike however you want.
i want one with rainbow colors under the rear fender, and a giant black ***** for an air filter. he says he’ll get back to me on that. seems that might take some special fabrication.
check out tail end customs and tell josh to keep kicking ***, and to wear boots when he rides, the squid.
