So you'll have to get a pre-1917 model, then. Too bad, because this 1922 model has great character, and looks well built:



The 1917 and older models are pretty cool, though. Here is a 1917, apparently the last model from Detroit?:

This one wasn't made in Detroit, being a 1930 or 1931 model, but it is really cool. With those sweeping pipes, Victory would be proud to unveil this as a 2013 model...

Looks like a modern Harley "clone" engine and transmission in there along with CNC machined bits (controls, mirrors, etc.) scattered about, so I doubt it's a '30 or '31...

I think the age estimate is off by about 60-70 years...
