Those long cylinders do lend an antique air to the Victories. At least they are different than the HD/S&S powered fruit flies.

Good God, those have to be the most embarrassingly ugly piles of sh*t I've ever seen. I think Victory puts out some very nice designs off the showroom, I'd say they don't lend themselves well to chopping

These have to be the ugliest customs I have ever laid eyes on. Every pic in the article looks just uh, wrong... Our buddy from a few days back with the Yamaha trike made a more balanced custom than these in appearance. I can only describe them as the ugly offspring of a chopper and a bobber, taking the worst of each and welding them together. No flow just weird... But hey, if they sell, more power to em... And no, I dont think the victory plant is the issue.

The Victory engine is disproportionatly tall, I think it'll be difficult to improve on the factory bikes like the Vegas and 8 ball, these guys missed the mark.

Idunno, what's with all the sheet metal covering the rear tire/frame? Looks lind of scooter-ish. And that Dale E bike is (failing to find a better word) hideous.
