Default Stole a Vegas

New member here.

Not new to bikes, new to the Victory line.

Got this bike for an unbelievable price, I picked it up from an insurance auction for well under 1/2 the price they are currently going for in my area.
It does have a salvage title, but that doesn't bother me as I don't plan on selling it, I bought it to ride. When you first look at the bike it is hard to see
anything at all wrong with it, but after spending an evening cleaning and polishing it, I found a few small imperfections and scratches.

I don't know a lot about the Victory line up but after a lot of searching and looking at pics I cannot figure out what it actually is, unless the previous owner did some upgrades and customizing.
I know it is a Vegas from the VIN#

Congrats on your buy. What year is it? Looks to be a 100 inch engine. Nothing wrong with that. There are things to know about Victory maintenance that is different from other bikes. Don't let that scare you, these bikes are very easy to work on.
One thing that is different is the way the oil level is checked; with the bike vertical.
If and when you have questions, don't hesitate to ask, we are a knowledgeable and friendly group here.
Welcome to the World of Victory.

Welcome. Looks nice. At that price a few imperfections can be overlooked or maybe even buffed out!

Congrats and a used bike is supposed to have some nicks and imperfections from road wear. Post the VIN#. We can help you figure out what it is exactly.

All I can seem to find out is that it is an 06 Vegas, looks to me to have different bars, mirrors, grips, lever covers are chrome, swing arm is chrome, belt cover/guard is chrome, polished wheels
and the pipes have Victory Performance marked on them. Emblem on the tank looks different also.

So also not sure if it would be tuned or not.
