My Bike
« on: March 03, 2010, 12:22:31 am »
thought i would share a few pics of my bike as well its a 2005 Honda VTX 1300 C

I caught the mod disease bad with this one
So heres the list:
Bubs, Foots mods with spec 3(polished) 1800 wheel(vtx1800 wheel and brakes, the wheel is wider so i can run a 200mm tire vs the 170mm stock tire), vtxtreme 6* tress w/2" fork extensions, vtx 1300 retro fork tins, progressive fork springs, Thunder hurrican intake, factory pro jet kit with 215 main 58 pilot jet, accutronix forward controls, bar end signmals, iso grips, arlen ness tear drop mirrors, kuryakyn large bullet rear signals, bikers choice sidmount plate, kury chrome petcock cover, kury chrome engine cover,CP Massive t-bars C&C seat, 11" progressive rear shocks.

The bad thing is its forsale i need a car thats good on gas

You did a really nice job dressing that thing up too, by the way!

If the price is right, you should have no problem selling that thing.

The VTX is a really nice bike. They sound really good, and they are shaft driven. No chain or belt to ever worry about. Low maintenance. They hook up pretty nice too, a pilot in my company has one. The only way to tell what it is now is the distinguishable headlight.

When i bought my VTX, i was coming from a chain drivin bike.

To be completely honest, i HATED the way the VTX handled when poking around neighborhoods and parking lots.

It was way to torquey for my liking.

They do have less maintenance, but i dont think i'de buy another one with a drive shaft again.

But then again, maybe it was just the VTX that acts like that...
