This falls under 'How to F up a perfectly good motorcycle'.
16" spoke wheels and tube tires? Apehangers? Puleeeeze....

The 2011 8-Ball is far too good a bike to "bob". I know... We'll drop the rear down on the bump-stops, put a 4 speed jockey-shift on it, remove the front brake, and pull off one plug wire! Now it'll feel authentic!

If Victory is smart, they'll leave this sort of foolishness to Willie G.

Put a new front end on a Vegas and call it a new bike?
A sad step backwards for Victory.

It looks alright, but then I'm a big fan of this style. The only thing I'd change would be upswept fishtails and fatter fork tubes, like 50mm or something. Visually the front end looks weak compared to the rest of the bike, other than that I think it hits the mark

You should do these exact customizations on your BMW. Then it would be a "Glenden-Schtud mit Getbobbenhienie".

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!

I would happily own that bike. I would also happily swap out those bars.
