Default 2012 Highball

Price drop to 9,300 now!

Sound Clip! http://youtu.be/8WvS8Sd9Byo

I know I am going to regret this but here is goes! I am going to sell my much loved Victory Highball. I know it is the best on the market right now and I promise you won't be disappointed! The only reason I am even considering selling it is that another opportunity has come up to purchase something I have had my eye one. If I don't buy that I am also going to strip the bike down and spend several thousand pounds on modifying it so I am trying to save myself from myself!

This bike was the 2012 Cruiser of the year. I couldn't believe how good it was when I had my first ride of it. I was going to buy a Harley Fat Bob but this bike was just better in every area. I have spent countless hours researching these bikes and I have done all the modifications right and only used the best parts available.

I have bought all the parts from America and have spent heaps on getting all of the right stuff. The shipping and customs was expensive too.

The bike has been fitted with the following:

Victory Swept Pipes (these are over 1,000) and sound great. These are the most common pipes fitted to Victory in the UK. They really suit the bike and sound great.
Stage 1 Download to the ECU
K&N Hi-Flo Filter
Stage 1 Air Box filter cover (not installed)

RPW Free Flow Baffles From Lloydz Motorworks. I These really help after removing the stock baffles was the stock Swept Baffles are massive (they come with it). http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/1349/vi...baffle-sc-396/ You should hear it now! It's the way it should have been! The idle is spot on and runs amazing. Even the HD guys are impressed.

Lloydz Precision Adjustable Timing Wheel - Best modification you can do for these. Timing has been advanced to 4 degrees and improves the running immensely and make it run cooler. http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_vie...itemid=1000125

Lloydz Re-Useable Cam Cover gasket - Doesn't wear out for multiple adjustments when tuning the bike

Removed the 02 Sensors (bikes naturally run lean) and this helps it run better

Installed O2 Bungs x 2 http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/1071/vi...r-plug-sc-396/

Mini Bullet LED Indicators Front & Back - High quality ones not cheap rubbish (Trying to Find Link again)

High Quality Relays and equaliser to convert the LED

Kewl Metal Front Indicator Mounts http://www.kewlmetalstore.com/produc...roducts_id=750

Arlen Ness Slot Tracker Grips http://www.arlenness.com/prodcat/M-1321.asp

Arlen Ness Slot Tracker Pegs http://www.arlenness.com/prodcat/V-1341.asp

Arlen Ness Slot Tracker Cam Cover http://www.arlenness.com/prodcat/V-2126.asp

2 Inch Forward Controls which are a must have for this bike to give it the proper riding position http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/294/vic...k-inch-sc-338/

Lloydz 1/4 Turn Throttle Ring - Takes a 1/4 turn of travel out of the throttle twist and makes the bike more responsive. Another must have on these. http://www.lloydz.com/store/item_vie...itemid=1000124

Black Aluminium Bolt kit from Probolt UK throughout the bike where it is safe to do so. Primary cover, cam cover, fuel tank etc. Makes a massive difference. www.probolt.uk

Black Bolt Caps to go on all of the ones that need to stay steel for strength. http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/2072/vi...uttons-sc-503/

New HD Battery just installed last week at 150. It was left unstarted at the workshop while waiting for parts from the US.

Magnetic Sump Plug http://buywitchdoctors.com/p/915/vic...in-plug-sc-73/

2 x Black Rear Axle Covers on the gear lever side. (I also have a chrome one)

Victory Luggage rack - Not fitted

Victory Rear Passenger Seat - Not Fitted

Victory Vegas Seat as well - Not fitted. Much more comfortable. If I keep it I am going to modify this seat.

Come with the full stock exhaust set up

Victory Crash Bars by Linby - Best ones for this bike. Not fitted at the moment but I have photos with them on. They have foot mounts built in to them for highway riding. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...#ht_672wt_1140

Removed the ugly stock reflectors

Small 7x5 number plate - I also have stock size plate

I also have a few Victory items like badges and I might have a belt buckle too.

I will also include a waterproof bike cover. This bike has never been ridden in the rain.

Full DNA Data Dot Tagging to deter theft.

Full Service History, One at 500 miles and has just had a full Service at 1100 miles and oil change using genuine Victory Oil which is what the best race shops recommend.

The labour cost to get all the above work done was over 500 but that was at a discount as it was staff rate so for a retail customer it would have been double that.

As you can see I have spent a lot to get it to this stage.

Please remember the costs add up to a lot more than the links say. I have paid on average $50 US shipping on most items to get them here. You then pay 20% VAT on the TOTAL! Item Price + Shipping + 20% VAT on the top. You also have customs charge of 11 to 14 to release them from FedEx/Parcel Force.

If you have any questions at all please just let me know. I am not desperate and I am not interested in giving it away as it is too good and I still love it. If it doesn't sell this summer I will do the custom work over the Winter and keep it as I will invest more into it.

I'm in Edinburgh Scotland and I'm looking for 9,700

There is a custom Chopper I know about which is nearly finished that I might be able to get if I have the funds ready. With what I want to do with my Highball it would be better to take on the other bike
