Here is a 2013 'Victory Cross Country. We have started another build for a customer in Canada. He saw our bike and wanted one very close to what we have. So we are building him one. Please note that the customer wants one much like ours.

Brad Bole will be adding the paint to this machine. His name may sound familiar to you he painted the Lucas Oil chopper that was raffled off at Sturgis this year.

Upper frame is off, shroud, forks, rocker covers, primary cover, cam cover, forks, shifter and brake levers, pulley cover, exhaust covers all will undergo powdercoating. The rear will be lowered 3" and the exhaust will be upgraded. A Lloyds fuel controller will be added along with VicBaggers custom upper frame, handlebars, windshield, license plate relocation kit, bagfillers. New grips and mirrors will also put some finishing touches on this fine machine. An ipod docking station will be added in the saddlebag for some highway tunes.

He makes alot of wheels and other custom parts too. He has been around for awhile, just making stuff for major companies. A little bit here and there. PM, renegade and a few others I do believe. He produces for Harley and Victory.

We offer his wheels for our customers and he currently is not selling to the public, just through dealers and retail merchants. We could probably save you a bundle on shipping alone tho. Could definately see if we could hook you up. I do believe he can offer a 30". He just got another new machine. Are you in the market for a 30? Chrome or contrast cut? I know he sends his wheels all the way to Cali to be chromed.... So obviously they are a bit more...

Love that look! I always wondered if it could be done by simply sanding off the paint/powder.

The lower bag fillers we make.. might as well install a set... they allow you to run the passenger backrest and keep the antenna, if you want to.....

Lower bagfillers installed and our license plate relocation kit.. That kit really cleans up the tail end... plus a good look at what we did to the mufflers...

We filled the shroud in and relocated the brake resi..... now it is all hidden... plus there is no longer a dip in the shroud... we made a small cut out in the shroud to run the line... really cleans this shroud area up....

Very nice. If you ever need any custom machined parts give me a changce at it. I am working with a Victory dealer close to me to do some custom parts soon. I don't think there is a lot out there besides what Ness is doing.

Very nice work. So if I understood correctly the frame is modular and the backbone and neck bolt on and you make a bolt on backbone that has the rake and strech in it?

This seems like cheating! Maybe I'll try and convince a local to get one so I can try it!

I think this thing has amazing curves from the factory.... I would like to build one totally using the naked curves and reshape everything to match...

Yes, we designed the upper frame assembley so that it is actually a bolt on piece... The Vics have a cast aluminum frame, cutting and welding on it brings up some serious liability issues... So we designed an upper frame out of steel... The upper frame also acts as the airbox,, so we had to incorporate that into the design as welll...

This definately makes customizing a bagger alot easier for the sawzaw faint at heart... The Vics frames bolt together. The upper part acting as the airbox also.... This is how that jam the motor in there so tight... Our upper frame actually increases airflow as well helping with the grab and twist response often felt when sittin on your favorite ride..... lol

Looks great, I really like the way it looks with the 26 on it. Let me ask, is there any way to make it lower while at rest? It would be the cherry on top if you could set the front down lower, like in front air ride 101.

Sweet build on this vic!

I don't mean to hijack this thread, But I was on your website today and really liked this bike! I was wondering who made that wheel?
This is the first time I can say that I don't mind the snow coming so I can start my 26" vic xc build.
