The Honda VT1100C2 is a motorcycle produced by Honda from 1995 to 2007. The Honda VT1100C2 was more commonly known as the Honda Shadow ACE (American Classic Edition). It originally featured a single pin crank which due to Harley-Davidsons threats over the Potato Patent caused Honda to eventually revert the bike to the technically superior dual pin crank.
