So you're gonna do a Vic project bike? Well, then. You'll want to know these guys.

That's a sharp looking bike, fit and finish on those and other Victories is top notch too. If there's a good dealer near you Victory would be an excellent alternative to Harley-Davidson or a Japanese cruiser or touring bike.

100,000 rugged individualists, choosing their own, unique identity in the pages of an accessory catalog.

Nah, it's a nice bike, and I'm sure it will be great fun to put stuff on it. I think it's a bit of a stretch to call the Victory engine "smooth;" the Vision I rode had an engine that churned and vibrated like a...well...like a narrow angle big-inch V-Twin.

The point of our exercise is to demonstrate an alternative to the default H-D usual course of action. Everyone is already aware of the huge OE and aftermarket support for Harleys.

Put a springer front-end and a 16in tire on there and you'll get enough custom for me. The rest of the bike is fine.

We have plans to mod the front end, but not with a springer. Sorry.

No, but a precocious 12-year-old is building a new design out of Tinkertoys...

If it were me I would try and get a kingpin or better yet a hammer front fork. This conversion is known as a "king vegas". It would change the conventional fork to a inverted marzzochi cartridge fork and depending on kingpin or hammer source a single or dual front discs on an 18" rim. Also depending on year they could be brembo brakes.

The engine mods would be loyds 104 big bore with 11 to 1 compression, vm-1 cams, torque tube or S&S intake, powercommander, supertrapp or bassani 2 into 1 exhaust and msd coils. Power from top bottom to top.

A corbin gunfighter seat, Hammmer S handlebars, Corbin beatle bags for some utility and Victory's add on tach.
