I have the opportunity to pick up an '05 8-Ball for 4500 and some trade tomorrow. Only 10k on her and the photos show her as like New condition. I understand you guys are a little biased here but how is the value with this deal? Never owned or even really talked about a Victory before. I've always been a Harley guy. Don't hate me. But what's the honest opinions on here. KBB puts the value at 5k. What can I expect as far as life span out of the 92ci. Thanks for you time.

One of my riding pals is riding a Victory with about 50k trouble free miles on his 92 ci. I've always liked the 8 Ball and I believe the Vics are good bikes.

I personally wouldn't hesitate.

Thanks guys. I pulled the trigger. Picked her up last night. 10,200mi and I paid 4400 plus a well used RIA 1911 pistol that I paid 400 for. So I'm out 4800 total. She's cherry. Wish I knew how to put pictures in here so I could show you. I'm definitely proud of ELVIRA.

I don't have any experience with Victory's , but have never heard anything bad about them. I too have always been a HD owner , but they do interest me more than a Twin-Cam. I'd love to be able to play with one of the motors. For $4500 , I think I'd do it.

One of our riding group has a 92 in. Vic Vegas and he loves it. No problems to speak of.

Congrats on the new bike. I'd say you did real good. Add me to the list of Vic fans. IMO, they make a strong-running, well-engineered machine. Test rode a 2016 Cross Country IIRC. Very impressive. Won't be surprised if you end up liking the Vic a whole lot more than you expect. !!thumbs
