Ryan Karopchinsky of Halethorpe, Maryland, near Baltimore, sent these photos to the Victory Mailbag
of his 2006 Victory Vegas 8-Ball, which he purchased new from Chesapeake Cycles
in Annapolis, Maryland.
This hardly looks like an 8-Ball, and with those new Victory badges on the tank, it hardly looks like a 2006 model.
“Over the winter I stripped down the bike and had a custom paint job done in the spirit of the 109 LE,” Ryan said.
“It is Synergy Green from the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro on the top and Black Crystal Pearl on the bottom from a 2011 Dodge Ram.”
You can see a Camaro we assume is Ryan’s in the background of the photo below. His 8-Ball is extensively customized beyond the paint, too.
“I have added a SuperTrapp 2 into 1 exhaust, hard saddlebags from Hard Street, a Jackpot headlight with the HID upgrade, Arlen Ness Holeshot engine covers, Kuryakyn comfort flame grips, a Memphis Shades windshield, Arlen Ness Tear Drop mirrors and the new Victory badges for added measure.
“The bike currently has a little over 10k miles and is still running great,” Ryan said.
Enjoy the ride, Ryan.
