Visions and Cross bikes all have the same cast frames but someone else will have to answer for the tubular framed bikes.

looking at the pics they seem to be the same as well... hopefully someone will chime in... may call victory and find out tomorrow if i cant here... thanks for the info given though! im wondering because the kingpins frame is like $1500... others are like 3 and 4 hundred... if they were the same then it wouldnt matter to me... i could swap everything over and have a 07 kingpin for less then $3500... thats mainly why im trying to figure it out... already listed to part it out but havent sold anything yet really lol...

The only thing the Vision and X bikes share is the method of manufature. Frame sections themselves are completely different.

Vegas and KP share a common frame, and Hammer/Jackpot share a common frame
