Here is my VX800 that I converted to a cruiser.

When I first saw the VX advertised for sale I fell in love with that tall narrow V motor and wondered what it would look like sitting in a cruiser frame (I had not found the Intruders at that point!). I purchased it sight unseen, had it shipped from interstate and on arrival took it for a spin around the block then pulled it into the garage and began pulling it down.

It was a planned 6 month project that took closer to two years with many trial and error moments. The changes included:
- VS800 tank
- Forward controls
- 4 x electronic gauges (speedo is GPS)
- Water temperature sensor in radiator lines
- Yamaha seat
- Honda 750 side panels
- Harley soft tail rear fender (the VX taillight is the same light)
- Polished wheel rims
- custom screen
- German fiberglass chin fairing
- Cutaway exhaust
- Hard saddlebags with integral lights
