2011 Victory: Ness Signature Series

Ness Motorcycles

For the first time in history, there will be three generations of the storied Ness family building custom bikes for Victory Motorcycles. The patriarch of the family, Arlen Ness, will do for 2011 what he has done for the last eight years–build a custom Victory.

This year, it’s an Arlen Ness Signature Series Victory Vision. A master custom builder, Arlen Ness has started with a Victory Vision Tour and given it his Arlen Ness Signature Series treatment, with Arlen applying his “Scroll Ness” styling extensively on the bike.

His son, Cory Ness went to work to make the 2011 Cory Ness Signature Series Victory Cross Country. According to Victory, “Cory Ness has turned the ultimate hard-bagger into a traffic-stopping custom.” He’s done this with a number of custom parts and style of his own design.

Zach Ness, the son of Cory and grandson of Arlen, went bag-free to come up with the 2011 Zach Ness Signature Series Victory Vegas 8-Ball. A limited, numbered edition, the Zach Ness Vegas 8-Ball features paint and graphics he has personally designed, along with a plethora of Ness family accessories.
