Default For the "stupid question" department

Hi all,

I just bought my first Victory. It's a 2004 Kingpin. I went to get it registered today and the title says it's a Kingpin Custom.

Is there a difference between a "regular" Kingpin and a custom?

Thanks,
Mark

The only 'stupid question' is one that goes unasked.
Someone on here will know the answer.
Either way you're a proud Victory Kingpin owner, welcome to the fray,
Show us some pix of your Custom.

Kingpins are great running and great handling bikes. From the first ones with the V92 and five speed right up to the last ones made, with the 106/6speed. Welcome to the family.

I wonder if it's a "premium" model? Those had upgraded wheels and chrome forks etc.

That's kinda what I was thinking. Maybe a custom factory paint job too.

Mellow Rider; can you post a picture of it?

Thanks to all for your responses. Yes, maybe it's because of the paint job. That would make sense. I appreciate your help.

I'm trying to upload a pic, but not sure if I'm doing it correctly. I don't know if it will come through.

It's not the best picture. I'll get a better one after I get it cleaned up. But you get the main idea.
