Default Greetings from the UK

Hi everyone
Im in the wonderful UK.
Build custom chops trikes etc as a hobby.
For long time wanted a fat tyred big V twin.
Harleys way too expensive.
The big jap engines like the yamaha xv1700 etc are gaining popularity.

Then stumbled across someone selling a 106 cu in victory engine with the bits to make it work..

Hardtail fat tube frame 300 rear tyre 250 front 🙂 on 18 x 10.5 rear and 18 x 8.5 front. 40 spoke ultima king spokes.

Looking forward to using this great resource to work out what I have and parts interchangability etc on engines

That was a very modest response from Motorbikerx (MBX) as he is our resident Victory hotrodder and has done a fantastic build on his Vic.
Lots of Vic goodies available from time-to-time on Facebook's Victory Motorcycle buy sell trade.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."

Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:

Thanks guys.
Victory not a very popular brand in the UK.
Lot of knowledgeable people luckily. But i can see this forum be a great font of info.

Starting with just the engine from an unknown bike of unknown year... not my brightest move lol. But price was right.
