Bought the bike on May 12, 2008 from Arkport Cycles for $6,500 (plus a bunch of taxes).

By 2009, I had made a bunch of changes and additions.

Last change has been the adding of a M50 air cleaner assembly

Any questions... just ask!

Regards,

"Viking" brand off the internet.

Leather covered, with a metal core shape that the leather is glued to. Then it has a fiberglass back panel.

Viking has nice bags (made in China) but they do not carry any replacement parts. I had to re-do the snaps, and now when the next one goes it will be replaced with velcro.

I made my own aluminium plates that I mounted inside the fiberglass and then two S.S. bolts mount them to the bike on the aluminum sissy bar frame.

"how did you find the 1400 shaft changed the bike?"

The taller gear I got from swapping out the rear end was like adding a sixth gear.

I do have to slip the clutch a little from a stop.

But I love the lower RPM at highway speeds, and gas milage is better too.
