Victory grabbed the first 2013 pre-production motorcycle off the line specifically for Zach Ness to make his own. Given a new model and a clean slate, Zach promises that his custom will capitalize on the high-quality chassis and handling that Victory is known for. "We actually delayed starting to build the bike because there was so much inspiration gained after riding the stock machine - it changed completely what I first thought I was going to build, and I'm excited to reveal it to the public on Saturday."

The sheet pull on Zach's custom at high noon on Saturday the 21st at the Victory Motorcycles display will come care of none other than R. Lee Ermey. "The Gunny" is well known for his roles in numerous feature films and television, as well as his commanding ability to inspire. Ermey carries with him the wish to promote the Wounded Warrior Project during his appearance at the show from noon through the afternoon. "I will ask for each person attending the show to bring in a donation for Wounded Warrior Project and come by the Victory display to say hello - it's a simple, but important mission for every motorcycle fan."

Yet another worldwide reveal is slated for 5:00 p.m. on Friday. Brian and Laura Klock designed and built a charity motorcycle to benefit the family of an employee who lost his life last summer. "Tattooed for Life is the name of the bike," says Brian Klock. "Vic Briggs left this world too early and he was a big part of our extended family. We miss him every day and poured our hearts into this build. All of the money that this motorcycle brings will be donated to Vic's family to take care of his kids down the road." This custom is based on a Victory Kingpin that was donated by Victory Motorcycles.

"We have been telling motorcycle enthusiasts that Victory is on the gas and I think the new bike reveal this coming weekend will prove that." says Vice President of Polaris Motorcycles Steve Menneto. "We're also proud to bring attention to the Wounded Warrior Project organization and offer the Klocks an opportunity to honor Vic at our display."
