We all have heard about some of the different styles of Victory bike custom work and mods being done. Not only body works, engine mods, wheels, controls etc. We get owners on the site asking about different fittings and how it was achieved. How about you tell us a little about your bike, its modifications and custom works.
Custom means a lot of different interpretations to different people, to some its paint, bling, engine or complete make over from end to end. Tell us what you have done and any problems you may have had, it will only assist fellow riders in their quest to bring their personal ideas to light.
You may have a theme that you have created, you may have fitted a 300mm rear wheel, raked the forks, changed your controls, spiced up the motor. Let others know of your trials and tribulations. Put up a photo, video, what ever it takes.
Tell us who done the works, where you obtained the parts, paint work and any pit falls along the way, from the smallest mod or addition to the extreme.
My 09 Hammer Premium has had a little work done, when I 1st got the bike I intended to bling it up a little with Derby sets, forward controls and possible seat change over only. Some 4 yrs down the track and we have created an awesome looking eye catcher, based on the Batman movie theme.
The art work was selected over a 4 month period and with assistance from Shaun Farruga from Predator Custom Painting who completed the airbrushing works. You will find Predator Custom painting at www.predatorcustompainting.com.au and also on facebook. You will see many fine examples of his work on these sites.
