Default Picked up this Bobber last weekend

It started life as a 2000 V92SC and in the last year has had a leather solo saddle seat, Wiseco fuel controller, twin street fighter headlights, Jag oil cooler, new tires, drive belt and battery.

He custom hand fabricated the:
rear fender
handle bars
forward controls
rear lights
cluster holder
heel-toe shifter (with foot boards)
exhaust

He sprayed on an industrial grade black satin paint w/satin clear coat. The seat springs, foot controls and levers are powder coated in red.

I use to weld so I know what a good weld and bad one looks like. All the welds on the bars are smooth and look perfect. He is a well respected machinist who has years of experience.

It has 61,000 miles on it. Got it for 4k

Called local Victory dealer to see about the recalls and was told all was done except the Kickstand one.

I think it's kinda cool...maybe a few too many red accents - levers, shifter....

Now if Victory came out with something like this as the Gunner as opposed to VegasJudge that the Gunner actually is we could have some interesting conversation.

Very nice. Love the dual headlights look!

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Yeah the red does stand out but it is growing on me so for now I'll leave it as is. The previous owner went to the extreme of having all the red powder coated on (Except rims) so I'll give it some time before I make a permanent decision as I don't want to screw it up.

very cool. I think you did just fine. One offs are always hard to price but it looks like good work from the pics.

Yeah it does stand out with all the red but I want to ride it as is for awhile before I go and change things. The heal/toe, brake, kickstand and clutch levers are all powder coated so not going to change them until I'm 100% sure.
