The Pin looks mint with WW's!!Could you do a Vegas 8 Ball???
Unfortunately the Vegas sports such a low profile tire there is no room for me to paint any white walls. :eek:

I can't convince Angel to take the MSF so she can ride. She loves whitewalls and those two pics just might nudge her over the edge!

Vic8 the High Ball is the Vegas. If you can try and look at it with the low bars and a longer front fender that's what you want.

You're right,but I'm having a tough time visualizing the Vegas rims with WW's.The photoshopped KP,gives me an idea,but I'm not sure how they would look with the short Vegas fenders,and the 21" front wheel.:confused:

It's hard to visualize because it's mission impossible. I don't think anybody makes white wall tires that fit the Vegas. The tires are very low profile, so the white wall becomes a white pin stripe. :eek:

Hello,
I am researching the same thing. I love the new High-ball, but thinking the Vegas 8-ball is the same bike mius the matte black and white walls/spoke wheels. So I have seen several affordable used Vegas's out there. If I get one, how do I go about getting the 130/150 dunlop WW's with the spoke wire wheels like the High-ball? Does anyone know what it would run me to order them "oem" and have them installed or do after market parts? Is it worth the trouble/$ -that I might save? I have seen a clean 2008 Vegas for about $7,500. If I do the white walls and wheels (with the fat 130 dunlop in front and 150 in the back) can I save a lot of money...compared to 13,500 msrp for the 2011 Highball? Any input would be appreciated, thanks very much!

Here is a novel idea, check the Victory web site, ebay or call a dealer for prices on the particular parts you want. Then add it all up with the price of the Vegas you have in mind and you'll see where you stand in regard to cost.

Remember when spokes were cheap and mags were expensive??
Now its the other way around. Let us know if you find the price of the HB spokes.
