Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The 2005 VT1100C is the bigger version of the entry-point, middleweight Shadow Spirit, boasting an 1099cc v-twin and packing classic looks and a strong custom air about it.

Mid-sized apehangers, forward controls, dual bullet chromed exhausts and a sculpted seat are complemented by a small, retro headlight, a slim frond fender and cast wheels.

Great for longer hauls, the 2005 VT1100C Shadow Spirit is still a fun bike to ride on a daily basis, as streaking through slow traffic is much easier on two wheels.
