Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The 2000 Honda VT1100C3 Shadow Aero brings massive retro styling for those in search of the yesteryear looks packed with present-day bike-making technology.

Low, long and with a menacing stance, the bike harks back to the old-school cruisers, with the ample fenders and laced rims adding undeniable class.

Add in a chunky 2-into-1 chromed exhaust, beefy forks, a huge headlight and generous bars, a solo seat and a smooth, flowing two-tone color scheme and prepare to be enthralled.
