2000 Honda Shadow Aero VT1100C3 **** 10,800 Original Miles **** Brochure Bike **** From Private Collection **** Final Production Year ****
This is the one Harley Davidson sued Honda for being “TOO HARLEY” often referred to as the “Potato Suit”, limiting it’s production to only 3 years. (98,99 & 2000) Honda then decided to replace their first “Single Pin Crankshaft Engine” (like Harley) with a dual or two place crank in 2001 and forgo the suit. The “AERO c3” was the only model offered with this engine, while the ACE, Tourer, Sprint and Saber, all 1100s, were Dual Pin offerings.
This one being of the last year of production, is sure to hold it’s position in history for perpetuity. In fact, Wikipedia states “One of the markets fastest appreciating Japanese bikes, with fine examples bringing in excess of MSRP ($ 9,699.00) at auction.” You’ll be hard pressed to find another in this condition. With it’s single pin crank engine and Vance and Hinds “Straight Shot” exhaust she serves up that distinctive rumbling rhythm and all the power you’ll need with unmatched Honda reliability.
