    Just bought a 2007 Kingpin Tour for$1500. Dealer wouldn't take it in on trade.

    Confused. Did you buy one or try to sell one to a dealer for a trade?

    Original Owner wanted to trade it in at the local HD dealer, dealer wanted no Victory's on the floor. Bike has 81k ,never down, complete, just needs alot of cleaning and basic maintenance. No big deal, I'm retired and determined to bring her back up.

    If he ever sold that 1 reliable Victory he couldn’t resale them a different HD every few years, HD’s are great job security as their need to be at the dealerships are never ending. Nice buy, congratulations and welcome

    How about a before and then later a after picture of the bike. That way we can see all the work you do to her. Because as the above comment say's " It never happened without pictures ".

    Appreciate the interest, the Kingpin is coming along very well. Starting with the Aluminum, the wheels,pulley,swingarm all cleaned up great with just some wheel cleaner and a brush and a hose.The black paint is coming back nice also, just a ton of dead bugs. Windshield after soaking in warm water and soap looks excellent, no scratches. No tears in the seat. Leather wrapped bags now look like new,etc.. I'm a amateur detailer with alot of time on my hands. Lots of new parts and basic matinenance, will do a compression test soon also.Would imagine the fuel filters and all inside the tank will be looked at as well. The King will be back! Not much on photos, but thanks for your interest.

    Probably correct ,as the average owner relies on the dealers for even basic stuff like oil changes

    The guy had 20psi in the front tire and the rear master cylinder was almost empty. Front brake pads were metal to metal, etc.....I actually felt sorry for this bike. I knew the potential was there, I have done this many times with my Buells. I'm use to this by now.

    A true glutton for punishment. I've got an S1 and an S2. Think about giving up on the tube frames occasionally but it passes.

    For whatever it's worth, the headlight bulb was burning the reflector,.replaced with a LED unit. At 81k the original belt was out of alignment, deflection beyond specs,and was dry. Belt dressing took care of the last issue. I've heard the arguments about lubing the belt. I don't care if people lube their belt or not, I do if it's dry during inspection. The biggest issue I see here is a stripped drain plug, so I have some weeping at the moment. Shout out to the Vic Shop for the videos, thanks guys.
