Check out the alternator setup on this pair of VN1500, about the 5th and 6th pics.

Bought an SUV from this site last month. A pretty sweet deal.

Very interesting that the first two machines are so close in total mileage. I also did not recognize the model name they used, Commander, and when I looked that name up on a listing of all Victory model names it did not show. Maybe the list is wrong or who knows what is going on. I do agree that there are some real interesting deals at auctions and even salvage yards but the lack of real past information on the care of a bike must be overcome by solid mechanical knowledge when checking the bike first. I know a friend that has purchased several smaller bikes used for rider training classes and rebuilt them into cafe racer style machines that he sold for an easy grand profit each after all expenses. He has done it at least ten times now. If anyone tries one of these flips I wish them good luck. It could be a fun run.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

ITíS A PRIVILEGE

Itís a privilege to build motorcycles for police forces. In this arena, performance is measured by people served and protected. We respect the power of the policemanís oath.

VICTORY POLICE LINEUP

The spirit of this oath is engineered into every fleet motorcycle that is made by Victory Police Motorcycles. Currently they offer three different models the Victory Commander 1, Stealth Commander 1, and Victory Visionģ.
Police Motorcycles | Victory Motorcycles

Good thing about the police bikes, they get serviced. The mileage is probably two cops riding together, like the CHiPS boys.

A long distance deal is a bit harder, but if one happens to be local, they let you come on site and inspect the vehicles. I bought the SUV from 4 hours away, but I knew what I was buying. Got no service records, but it's easy to see it was well maintained. Already completed a couple of repairs, but it's still a one owner, low mileage, cream puff. Still think I should've bought a pickup, but I was tired of looking and I have a trailer. Found out the mystery toggle switch is for the strobes on all four corners, should be fun.

Bad thing about owning a Victory now, parts are probably about to be really scarce. A running Victory may be a high dollar item in 20 years.

If I hadn't just bought that SUV .... I missed two Harley Ultras, around 2007 models, about $3100 each. A 2016 Honda Pioneer 1000 for $1750.

Watching a 30' x 100' metal building, still in the boxes.

The Victory Commander starts out as a stock Victory Cross Country.

Funny...the first time I saw a Victory Vision , although the styling was kind of "mid-century modern" I thought, "That would make a cool police bike"
Never knew that was actually an option until now...

Does have an Art Deco look, especially the back with that 'V' of the tailight and turn sigs.

Lee's Summit should be in reach for you, huh? Oh, 4 hrs, maybe not. I didn't list any of the sportbikes I saw elsewhere, but the rest at Lee's Summit was trucks and equipment. Did see an FJ something, FR? Biggest sportbike in the listings.

This was tempting, but the bid is rising quickly: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?f...22&acctid=8850
I see a lot of bondo on there too.
