What was your intended objective when you started the build?
I love all bikes. It’s all about the ride. But one man/woman’s bike treasure is another’s project. All good. Ride your own.
Create a sleek but functional solo touring machine
What motivated you to start your project?
The challenge of creating a sleeker looking VTTC96 RKC while maintaining the stock paint.
What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the bike?
I love the idea of the classic black leather bags just not the sleeker look I wanted. So I searched for leather bags that would give me the look I was after and found the Viking stretch hard leather bags.
What are you most proud of?
Spent hours Identifying all of the areas on the bike that dampened the sleek look and feel. Longer foot boards, removal of passenger boards, adding stretch bag, etc. I explore just the right amount chrome and black on areas of the bike to maintain a clean sleeker look
What do other people say about your motorcycle?
