1998
Color: 
Teal green
Review Summary: 

At the time, I was hinting to my wife about getting a bike and while passing a dealership I said to her "I just want to call in and see what the bikes are like these days". I was looking around at the 800cc to 1100cc bikes and saw a Kwaka cruiser that looked nice. I asked her what she thought and she said "If you're going to get a bike, get this one here" It was a 1998 Teal Green Intruder VL1500LC. She loved the colour and I asked her if she was serious and she said yes. So I bought it. We loved that bike. It was reliable. Never had any problems. It had heaps of power especially for two up. Then after 8 years it was time to upgrade. We still miss that bike.
