Default $1750 2006 victory vegas anchorage alaska

Hi guys, Im new to this forum and new to the victory brand. I was on craigslist the other day and found a bike that i just couldn't pass up. I was looking to get some information from the members of this forum to figure out just what i have.

I bought a 2006 victory vegas jackpot cory ness series. It was involved in a wreck that bent the front forks, oil cooler, front rim, rotor and fender.The color is black with blue flames. I haven't seen many of them out there so i'm looking to fix it up. hopefully, you guys can answer a few questions for me.

How many bikes did they make in this series?

Why is their not a badge number on it if its a cory ness series?

Where is the best place to find parts cheap for these bikes?

Does anyone have frame dimension for the front of the bike?

Congrats on the bike, IMO it's the best looking Jackpot, but I'm biased lol.
Not sure the exact number that were made, but I've heard around 150-200.
Best place for replacement parts would be eBay and/or classified sites.
If you plan on keeping it to ride, consider the kewmetal 5 or 7 degree triple trees while you need the front end. I've seen chrome forks on eBay and a host of stock front rotors etc. and you can still get the front ness evil 7 wheel new.
Good luck!

There were no plates on the Ness models of that year so your not missing anything there. I would agree that you may want to put on a new set of front forks that has a larger rake. A buddy or mine put some nice chromed-out ones on his Hammer and a larger tire. The Jackpot was designed to run a 21" but you could probably EASILY run a 23" or even a 26" if you put the right triple tree and raked forks on it. BTW, if you only paid $1,750 for that wreck, you did AMAZINGLY well! Congrats and hopefully you will have it back together in no time

ndabunka and 25thAnnZ,

Thanks for the input guys, I don't think raking the bike is the route I want to go. Although I did an amazing deal on this bike, I still need to keep it somewhat cheap putting it back together. I'm looking at buying the stock shocks on this bike. Have any ideas where I might find one? As you can imagine their is not a lot of option in alaska and Ebay doesn't seem to have much.

More questions:
Any Idea if there is another one of these bikes in alaska?

Is there anyway of seeing what number bike of the series I have by the vin number?

Nice hit. Just the mill would have been a good hit at that price. don't know that I would have driven all the way to the Yukon for it, but at that price, I sure would have thought about it.

As far as I know the Vin won't decode any info on what number in the series the bike is as it will come up as Ness Premium, but is not differentiated between the Cory and Arlen models. As mentioned earlier, the Ness numbered plates began with the 2007 models along with the diamond cut cylinder heads.
