1993 Honda Shadow VT1100C (What?????)

Photo of a 1993 Honda Shadow VT1100C (What?????)

No longer owned


I found this bike on the internet, I contacted the owner and we started talking about it. I went up and picked the bike up a week later and put $1000.00 in his hand. We agreed on the remaining amout to pay in payments and the rest is history. I got the bike licenced and insured, got my learners permit, and was out on the road. I only ran into a few things that I didnt like about the bike which was the taillight. The previous owner had put a skull taillight on and that isnt my style so I am custom making a new taillight cover. The other thing that I ran into was when the bike was painted whoever put it back together had no concept of checking the wires before you tape them up so the turn signals are all messed up. I have put probably 200 miles on it in the past couple weeks and so far no big mechanical problems except for a vacuum line coming loose and stalling the bike out. The pipes on this bike are so loud that I cant ride in the front of the group anymore I get to be the last guy in line. Im not complaining I love that this bike is so loud, it gets me alot of attention from the ladies.
