PRICE INCREASE. PayPal (credit card) is offered to our customers to make your check-out more convient but it does have a significant cost which we pick-up (especially the Canadian orders). So, we have decided to have a partial price increase to cover SOME of the PayPal / cc fees. But, if you decide to pick-up your items and pay with cash or check, contact us and we can offer the "cash discount". You won't be able to do the "check out" but we can sell the old fashion way too.
VSR is now offering the 76 starfire style handle bar loops and foot stirrups
TX / TXL / Starfire DASH PANELS This is a new product which noboday has offered before. VSR is working with the same complany who makes our bumper grill inserts and although very late, we are expecting the first dashes today for review / approval with orders being filled in April / May. Most of the first run are spoken for so if you'd like to be on a list, write us and you'll get an early notification. Our plan is to add the appropriate holes (choke, ignition, temp guage, etc) for the year you need and attach the proper decal. They will be molded in black plastic but died the VSR midnight blue - identically to the bumper inserts. The initial testing looked good except for an impact test. So, we are evaluating a new plastic.
We have decided to "correct" our 73 starfire hood and pan molds. Those products will resume this summer.
RXL skis. We developed the tooling and had 13 skis made All but 2 have been sold. These come as 77 or 78 style skis. More sets can be made. These are not in the store so contact us directly if interested.

A VSR sled has finish in the top 2 overall at every national show that a sled was entered.
FAQ: Why are our fiberglass products more expensive that the others that are on the market?
Actually, it's by design. At VSR, we make sure you're getting EVERYTHING you pay for. As an example; Our midnight blue gel is an exact match and very expensive. To create that color, its actually 3 different colors / layers of gel coat. This is necessary to give you the correct color of blue whether in sunlight or indoors. It also gives the correct color to the inside of the hood. The competitors use a single thin layer of gelcoat. Good for racing, but not durability or form. Our pans have reinforcing cloth just as the originals did, and we aren't aware of anyone who offers that. Additionally, our products are thicker and stronger than the competitors' products. These added materials and the labor to apply them provide a superior product but there's obviously a cost to do it. VSR has also spent thousands on improving the finish of the molds to provide a vast improvement in the finish of the gel. So yes, we could be cost competitive with anyone, but we choose not to.
We have began the restoration of a 73 Starfire 650 and a 77 RXL. Those should be done late summer early fall. Following those sleds will be some indys. After that, our restoration services will be limited to small projects only. Such as building complete seats, complete hoods, and other customer needs who purchase our products.
