I've been talking about buying a bike.. so today, I did. Pics inside.

Bought it from a guy I know. It rides low. It's fast and mean as hell. As long as the title is clear and whatnot, it will be mine Monday morning. Please do not ask what I paid. I did get GREAT deal. Also, when I say "aftermarket" below, it's because I don't remember what he said or I don't want to say. I have papers backing everything up for my own records.

Details you ask?

2003 Honda VTX1800, low miles

Cobra pipes, Fuel Injection work, K&N, Power commander with Custom dyno/street tested tunes by a professional tuner, BIG cams, aftermarket clutch, Polished rims, lowered 3 inches w/aftermarket rear shocks, larger 200 series rear tire, Triple tree work, and to top it off...

Custom paint. Only a few weeks old. 6 coats of clear. Pics don't do it justice. He will be matching my helmet to the bike over the next few weeks.

Thanks guys. No money will go into the bike. She's perfect. I may have to raise her up a bit. There is about 3-4in between the frame on the ground. I'm also having the rear set of the pipes put back on. She's too loud, but the lope of the cams sound nice!

I LOVE the fact that it is a Honda but I think the color scheme is going to throw people off and make them think it is a Harley....

It's a different orange than Harley. Honda has a custom orange that's close on other 1800's.
