Taking online customization to a new level, Victory Motorcycles of Spirit Lake, Iowa has recently extended the option to trick-out any of four modelsâ€”but only for a limited time. Until 31 October 2006, visit Victory's site and let legendary bike builders Arlen and Cory Ness walk you through the slick interface to help you to design a one-of-a-kind motorcycle starting at around $16,000 (though the online system can help save money on a custom bike). From paint color to chrome accessories and graphics to touring packages, Victory's custom program offers options to bikers who want an easy way to get a bike tailored to their personal style. Of note is the limited â€œblacked-out optionâ€ where wheels and other features can be blackened, for those who prefer making a more sinister-looking statement.
