- 2005 Victory Vegas - Arlen Ness Signature Series


Leave it to the Ness family to take something as right as a tricked-out Vegas and push it even further. It’s the 2005 Ness Signature Series Vegas. And this year, their radical, custom fingerprint gets even more radical. It all begins with the best of last year’s head-turner. Long, low Vegas styling. Beefy V-Twin muscle. Drag bars. And Ness billet. Billet handgrips. Billet engine cover inserts. Billet-style mirrors. Then comes the Ness chrome. Chrome fork sliders. Chrome triple clamps. Chrome foot controls and supports. Chrome swingarm. And chrome switch housings. From there, it gets a wicked new “Black & Blue” paint job that packs a serious custom punch. It gets new Ness “Evil 7” billet wheels. Rubber has never been wrapped around such awesome wheels before. There’s a new, custom-stitched snakeskin-pattern seat. The clutch and throttle cables get the braided stainless treatment. And it wouldn’t be right if one of the men who put their signature on this custom ride didn’t put a signature on the side cover.
