    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.

    Thanks .... Shoppe builds some kick ass bikes. We are working with Santa Clause... We will be releasing over 20 parts for the Cross Country and X bikes over Oct and Nov. We have a complete new tail section that includes bag extentions, speaker bag lids, side extended wing panels, and a complete replacement fender with built in bag fillers. We have 2 sets of bagger lites available, and much...much more.
    The air ride we have will slam your bike 4's... It rides great.. it has a built in dampining system, so you can control the ride.

    Dreams and wishes, no bike yet

    As a subscriber to american bagger magazine, PLEASE tell me your company will be offering a 250 rear end conversion to the public, I'm tired of trying to find the same quality parts for h-d and so far very few are answering the call though I'm SURE the yells are getting louder. Even now, the only custom frame that I can locate is a v92 bobber kit.

    HMD, Glad your gonna offer a 250/240 rear tire kit for the Vics, when ya choose your tire you might want to consider the 240/45zr17 that pirelli makes for the ducati diavel, It flat out -out performs ANY other wide tire out there, I've read several articles about how Ducati worked exclusively with Pirelli on this tire (which is standard equipment on the Diavel) to make it handel really well, so you dont have to "Muscle-the-bike" in the turns, and its supoused, to have good mileage too, ...just my 2 cents, and how long before ya post picts????
