Default I got a suggestion for a new Vic

I would like to see Victory add a " Limited Edition" Victory Jackpt with a " Springer Front End " on it.

The dealer in Reno, put one on a few years back and it was very nice looking.

Nice paint, seat, chrome package and a springer, would get my interest. As the Jackpot needs a little refreshing.

Refreshing? Last I looked, the latest fashion trend was go back to 1972:

If you're going back that far, here's the REAL latest trend...I think Victory is calling this one the "Judge" though

Have you ever ridden a bike witha springer front end? I have owned two and they are great bar hoppers and look great. Other than that they handle poorly, vibrate and very little travel.

Couldn't disagree with you more Vrat. I own a 2004 FXSTSI and it handles like a dream and has travelled 600+ miles a day on trips when coming back from Sturgis.

My springer actually handles really well gping through the mountains ( stock handle bars)

Was your springers HD or aftermarket ( in which I may see your point, but they would never make it to a production bike)

Back in the 80s I built and rode a 1972 XLH with a 45Deg rake 6 in stretch in the down legs and a 18 over springer.Rode great and handled decent.But I was a 25 yr old with no sense.Still miss that old chopper.
