    Victory Motorcycles is an American manufacturer of V-Twin cruiser and touring motorcycles. Established in 1998, what started out as a small group of spirited engineers, designers and mechanics out of Medina, Minnesota, celebrated its title as producers of "The New American Motorcycle" in 2009 by producing its 50,000th motorcycle. Victory has made a name for itself by designing cruiser motorcycles with progressive styling, opting not to follow the classic, traditional formula for V-Twin cruisers already established by the other American V-Twin manufacturer. Full production of its first motorcycle, the V92C, began in Spirit Lake, Iowa, in late summer of 1998.

    In 2001, Victory came out with its line of Ness ®Signature Series Accessories. It was a savvy marketing strategy. What better name could be associated with motorcycles than Arlen Ness, a legend in the custom-building world? This would be the beginning of a longstanding friendship and working relationship between the Nesses and Victory Motorcycles.

    The following year, the Minnesota-based manufacturer introduced its Freedom 92/5 V-Twin, a 92-cubic-inch engine mated to a five-speed transmission. The new Freedom™ engine had rounded cylinders and a smaller oil cooler and provided greater power output than the previous mill. This engine would serve the company's newest platform well as it debuted the Victory Vegas in 2003. The new cruiser was an instant hit with the media.

    Arlen Ness recognized the customizing potential of the motorcycle. In 2004, Victory launched the Ness Signature Series Vegas, taking the relationship with Ness to the next level as Arlen added his touch to the bike. The Vegas took numerous "Cruiser of the Year" awards in various publications.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
