    Fantazmo! Don't apologize - you are pioneer firsters from what I know. I have never heard of anyone putting a 26" wheel on a Vic X-Country. Congratulations!! This will be good stuff. Please keep us posted.

    When you get these bikes done, you need to bring them up to Bike night at Westgate (Cardinals stadium district). Would love to see a tricked out Victory instead of staring at 30 identically tricked out Harleys.

    OK, maybe for looks, but totally impractical IMO. Good for show, but I wouldn't want to ride 6000 miles on it... YMMV or YOMV

    Ah there goes another one............Some folks just have to trash someone elses IDEA of reality with real world experience and facts. [​IMG]
    I love what you guys (VicBaggers and HMD) are doing with these machines. Am I going to drop that kind of money? No, but I sure respect and appreciate what you mechanical artist do

    HMD, Right on-Right on Right on, are you working for santa clause?????, It sure sounds like it, making all these new toys for the Vic bikes, You & Vic Baggers, are "Steppin It up A Notch" with the 26" wheel kits, can't wait to see the 3'' lowering air kit. Arizona Victory had a custom Kingpin a few years back, that was about 3" lower than stock, but when the bikes speedgot to 5-10 mph, the air shock would return to stock height so you still had great handling. With all the bags & fender mods your making, your Turning ino the JOHN SHOPPE of vic bike customizers, good luck, & cant wait to see all your Gear.
