True to the classic chopper design, the 2002 Honda VT600C Shadow VLX brings a fat rear tire complemented by a slim front wheel, both laced with shiny spokes. A peanut fuel tank resides under the beautifully arched handlebars, while the small, high-mounted headlight adds even more retro class to the front end.
This bike looks like an old hardtail, but it has a hidden adjustable monshock which allows great road stance in multiple scenarios. A wide-ratio 4-speed gearbox makes riding it both easy and convenient.
