THE VICTORY MOTORCYCLE
WRITTEN BY MICHAEL DAPPER EN LEE KLANCHER
THE MAKING OF A NEW AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE
In August 1993, a small group of dedicated engineers and enthusiasts were told to take a step that hadn’t been done succesfully for more than 40 years : Design and build a new American motorcycle.
The task proved monumental. An all-new engine had to be designed from the ground up. Chassis dimensions had to be determined. Federal and state regulations had to be met. Every piece had to be tested, evaluated and fine-tuned.
In The Victory Motorcycle, the trials and tribulations of creating a new motorcycle come to life, with a behind-the-scenes look at the design and development of the Victory V92C.
Color photographs, CAD drawings and styling renditions take you inside the Victory’s evolution.
