  • Why would anyone do this?

    It's one thing to customize your bike with parts from HD, Indian or other bikes. But this guy re-badged the entire bike?!

    He was bored? Needed to do something creative?

        Personally-and this is no knock on people who de-badge their bikes, or add Harley wheels and bags etc.- I'm proud to ride a Yamaha. I've been on them since 1973, and would own on other brand. To me, a Roadie is one of the best looking Vtwins out there, and I like to keep it (mostly) stock. Add the mileage on my present 2 Yamahas, and I've ridden them to the moon.

          Just today at a stop light dude says, “sounds like a harley” But I think he knew what I was on.. I smiled and let him hear the bassani’s as I leftum behind lol

        Who knows... Maybe he got tired of explaining to people what it is? I've had more than one Harley rider mistake my R* for an Indian. At least it's tastefully done and not as bad as the people who put BMW badges on their Honda.

          You think THAT'S bad, I've seen Bentley badges on Chrysler 200s!

          That's hilarious!!! So is that a BMW taste on a Honda budget? ;-P Can't even fathom the Bentley badges, they probably cost more than the car!

      • #7
        Well I wouldn't purposely mislead others to think it's a brand it's not. But that color combination goes well together in my mind.

          Got to love the comb-over... :-)

        Wonder if he's selling it to make room for a real Indian? $5K.......I don't know about that unless he can find someone that appreciates what he has created. Obviously has a lot in it.

          Ah, thanks Roadiemort. Not quite so bad. I guess the potential new owner could remove all the Indian stuff and still have a pretty nice RS.

      • #9
        I don't have a problem with it. He obviously likes the "Indian" look and probably didn't have the coin to buy one so
        he did the next best thing. I got to say he pulled it off pretty good.

          are those lighten holes for better gas mileage? Probably raises the drag coefficient which offsets the lighter weight...

      • #11
        FYI those badges on the tank were unauthorized trademark infringements and are very hard to come by now that Polaris shut down the people making them. They sell for quite a bit now.

            Hopefully the new owner will enjoy the bike
