After much consideration and pondering, I am selling my 2007 Honda VTX Retro. My work has me travelling too much now and I do not foresee that changing much so instead of letting this bike sit in my garage I have decided to find it a new home. It has been mine since 2010 when it only had just over 1,000 miles on it so I am familiar with all of the bike's history, maintenance, and can even tell you some really cool stories if you are interested.
I have religiously changed all fluids ahead of scheduled maintenance intervals including engine/transmission oil, rear end lube, coolant, and brake fluid. Tires are Dunlop D404s 170/80-15 on the rear; 140/80-17 on the front. Tires were new in 2016 and have approximately 7,000 miles of highway miles on them - still lots to go.
Performance modifications have been limited to three - the Road Burner double-wall pipes, the Arlen Ness 'Big Sucker' breather, and the stage 1 'Scar' mod to the carburetor. Those familiar with the VTX and the many discussion boards on the internet will be familiar with the 'Scar' mod. Those of you not familiar with this modification, it is basically a slight opening up of the primary jet to enhance fuel flow to accommodate the new exhaust and larger breather. All chrome is in outstandingly excellent condition. Other non-factory mods include the 39" beach-style handlebars, Chrome Front Fender Rail, Mermaid Figurehead, JBL Bluetooth Stereo and Speakers, Custom 'Jolly Roger' Tank decals, Memphis Shades Custom Windshield, and last but not least the Pirate Ship Trunk.
The trunk is a one-of-a-kind piece custom made for this bike. It was designed to provide roomy storage while transforming the bike into a one-of-a-kind eye-catching machine that was used as a fund raiser on ultiple occasions. The trunk bolts on directly over the factory tail lights, fender, and tag holder and features LED Tail Lights and Turn Signals. On-board electronics inside the trunk feature a flash generator that simulates canon fire from each of the six side-mounted canons' orange LEDs inside the muzzles, as well as a sound generator that broadcasts a 'Boom' from the stereo speakers as each canon fires. The trunk attaches with four bolts in the factory holes in the frame and a concealed wiring harness makes plugging the trunk up a simple '1-click' operation to set everything in 'motion'. You can see the details put on the ship's after deck in the photos so I won't list them all here - suffice it to say they're really cool. If you don't want the ship/trunk on the bike, no problem - just unplug and unbolt, move the license tag, and away you go. There's even a sea chest storage box on top of the trunk. The front of the bike has reproductions of whale oil lanterns with LEDs and a Fresnel lens on each to give a really cool 'port and starboard' marker light effect. The trunk is currently not installed so you can inspect the bike all over, and when you do decide to bolt it on, plan on spending a little extra time wherever you ride because people WILL want to take pictures when you stop. (and probably will take them when you're riding as well).
Yes, I have been a little attached to this bike as you can guess, but as I said earlier I am travelling too much now and want soeone else to continue the enjoyment I have had with this bike.
And by the way, if you're going to try and run a scam on me or this post you'll just be much better off simply moving along elsewhere.
Thanks for taking the time to look and I look forward to hearing from you.
