It's a VN750, just has different forks, among other things. Engine, frame, tank, side covers, and radiator, is all vn750.

I think maybe there's some kind of filter applied to the picture.

It looks good, definitely unique.

Never been a fan of ape hangers, valanced fenders or straight pipes. I'm deaf enough now, wouldn't want it to get worse.

I like the look of fishtails. Performance suffers no doubt. Either way, I just thought it was a good looking build.

There's a lot of good work on it, the paint looks great. Creative use of the bar in front of the radiator, and I just noticed the tool bag below the radiator.

Can't tell what's going on with the air filters, the airbox must be ducted into the round filters on the sides.

Engine is black in some pics, silver in the last one.

Yeah, Viking motorcycles, some place across the pond, is who built it. This was a for sale post from 2019. I think they wanted 4K euros

Gawd wouldn't that starter-mounted toolbag be a wreck on my bike- dirt all up the front and oil all down the back!

That sure is a nice paint job.

Yes I get a splash of mud there once in a while. It's also about the greasiest spot on the bike, road goo and guts.

So, this is not my bike. However, occasionally I search vn750 related tags to see what is out there and maybe gain some inspiration. This may be the best looking build I’ve seen. View attachment 55348
That is nice as a build, not a daily rider. Kinda what I wanna do with my CMX450. I had no problem identifying it as a VN. The position of the rear cylinder gives it away.

Not a fan of ape hangers, even on someone else's bike. Though I'm sure those would get my lumbar up off the seat.
Last night a vehicle was approaching me that looked odd. Couldn't make out what it was due to the position of the lights. Turned out, it was a Harley rider with what seemed to be 20"+ Apes with driving lights mounted on top of the bars and a colored headlight. E.T. coming down the road 👽🛸🤔

I wouldn't ride ape hangers, it just seems wrong for good control. Maybe in a parking lot, or parade, but I like having good leverage on the forks and I can't do that with my hands over my head. I would've crashed on some of the stuff I've encountered, tank slappers, deep holes, frost heaves that break your back, etc. (still think frost heaves should be painted white if they're more than six months old) :)

What color was the light? We're only allowed amber or white in front, no blue, red. or purple. Some cops nail people for their under lights. My buddy had purple under his Vrod. Purple is for hearses around here. Blue is for cops.
