Victory Motorcycles

It's beside my office in Glasgow.

They sell Harley copies, these god awful three wheel contraptions and quad bikes and scooters. The makes are Can-am & victory....ironic that one.

I've never seen anyone in the shop, they have a mental amount of stock and it never seems to shift.

Best thing I've seen if a 95/96 fox eye blade thats pretty tatty out the back, wanted to go in and ask for a test ride of it :lol:

How does that place stay open? Has anyone ever been in?

Not

from round that way so really couldnt comment!


Maybe its the 'loss leader' for that chain which is how they stay open when most places close! 

Sounds like a plan taking that bike out the back for a spin-them blades are lovely critters!

Yeah, she was a dirty one, round the back and hadn't been washed in ages.

There's a joke in there somewhere :wacko:

Victory

Think it's a bit unfair to dismiss Victory as only making 'Harley copies' they make some amazing looking bikes.

Maybe they're not best suited for British roads (or market) but you can't tell me a bike like the Hammer S isnt a gorgeous bit of metal.

"Harley copies"

Victory

They had a stand at one of the Sunday ride-outs we went to earlier this year (or was it last year).

Not my thing at all, but certainly caused a stir.


Maybe their customers only go in once it's dark, and nobody can see them?

Victory motorcycles

I wouldn't call them Harley copies.  Any bike produced by an Amercian manufacuter is likely to have a certain cruiser style but that's about where it ends. Cruisers are not my thing but I have ridden quite a few of their bikes and I found them to be at least properly engineered and put together.  Way ahead of HD in that respect.

All things for all people

Can-am, must be brilliant for the NABD people, solidly engineered with fantastic handling. Far better than some cobbled up trike.

 

Victory, not my thing, but a Ferrari nut would look at a Roller and say why? and vice-versa.

 

Why follow the crowd? Butlins mentality.
