    No, is the answer on the pipes. Welcome to the rabbit hole! Nice bike, tempted to steal your signature.
    Victory, the motorcycle I always wanted.

    Zing if you don't mind saying where in the UP did you find this bike? I am looking for a early Victory to add to my stable. If you decide to part with it down the road drop me a line and maybe we can work something out. I will be moving to the northern part of the lower peninsula at the end of the year. Bruce.

    Welcome from Michigan and congrats on a great bike find! FYI there are 3 VMC Victory riding clubs in Michigan. If you're up around the Ausable you might want to look up the NMVR Northern Michigan Victory Riders. There is also the WSVR and the WMVR in SE Mi and West Michigan.
