I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

The VL1500 Intruder LC was introduced for 1998. It was an extra heavy touring cruiser with a V-twin engine and shaft drive.

Although the model was named to Intruder (the LC addition meaning ”Legendary Classic”), the design was closer to the VZ800 Marauder than the VS1400 Intruder.
