Default How do I know if this is an 8 ball?

I have done some research, and I still can't find any thing that can tell me for sure that my bike is an 8 ball. When I bought it, I was told it is a 08 vegas 8 ball. I have looked up the vin number, and all that it tells me is it is a vegas.
The color is silver. I have not seen any this color. So I started to wonder if it really is an 8 ball.
If any one can help, I would appreciate it.

8-Ball is a blacked out Vegas. If the color is silver then it is not an 8-Ball. Is there a difference between an 8-Ball Vegas and a regular Vegas besides the color? I don't know.

The only difference is that the 8 balls are black, However this is the first one in my life Ive seen come silver from the factory. It even has the black rims so I would say its a 8 ball even though the parts are exactly the same.

It does have an all black motor. It is a 5 speed. But the head light doesn't seam to mach any other 8 ball.
Plus I think the non 8 ball cost more new.

Thanks so far for ask the post's.

The 8 balls are actually chaeper, Victory must get a good discount on black paint or somthing. Dont quote me but in 2010 0r 2011 they actually changed the head light but it sure looks like a stock one to me. and the regular vegas is ussually some kinda 2 tone from what ive seen. and 3000.00 more. Might be worth it as chrome seems to be alot easier to keep clean than black.

Call Polaris, they'll tell you what the bike was when it was sold. Mine was sold as an 8 Ball, but a dealer put on custom Victory Tins. They confirmed it for me.

If the 5th digit in your Vin# in an "A" then its an 8-Ball.
