What, then, is the essential difference between the Vegas and the Kingpin? First, what remains the same is the proven Vegas chassis (with its rising-rate, linkage-type rear suspension) and excellent, 1507cc "Freedom" V-twin engine and transmission. Differences begin up front, where the Vegas' conventional fork and chopper-style, 21-inch front wheel have been replaced by an inverted fork holding an 18-inch wheel with wider rubber. Crowning the new machine are fuller-coverage fenders designed by custom bike kings Arlen and Cory Ness to give the Kingpin that "anchored to the ground" look this customer demands. Voil Victory easily and inexpensively doubles the market appeal of the Vegas platform.
