Default Potential Vegas Owner (pics)

Hello all! I came to this forum to find some info on a bike I am considering. Here are some pics of it, its an 08 with some mods. I enjoy the stock look on these bikes, so how much am I looking at to replace the rear fender and get it looking more stock?

Thanks for looking!

If the owner doesn't have the original parts that came off it. I would just leave it there and look for another that is still stock. There are plenty of used Jackpots and vegas out there. This is exactly why I always keep all my bikes stock parts.

Welcome to the forum Hunter.

Here I thought the reason to keep OEM parts was so I could move all my goodies to the next bike.

The fender struts were cut off so you'd have to weld them back on. If you like the stock look than this bike is not for you unless you're willing to and talented enough to put it all back together. Keep looking, plenty of deals to be had!

I agree. Any modification that I make to a vehicle, whether motorcycle or auto, I keep the stock parts. There is no value in custom parts to a new owner.

I bring the vehicle back to as close as possible to stock before I resell. Then sell the parts on Craigslist or Ebay.

Thank you all for the quick responses. I didnt know if it was a bolt-on type deal or welding. Good to know, I will pass on this one and keep looking!

Thanks!

It's kind of bastardized and has most definitely been laid down once or twice... Should be dirt cheap.
