I keep looking at my old, regular Chevy Express cargo Van. Wondering if anyone has had success with putting a 1300 in a non-hi top van.
Sounds crazy, but I'm thinking about a trip
Thanks for any wisdom.

If you have an R model, the fenders extend further than the C models, just FYI. My R model is over 8.5' from front tier to rear fender tip.

Years ago when I sold my '97 Shadow Spirit 1100, the buyer showed up with an older conventional van. To get it in, we had to loosen the top handlebar clamp and rotate the bars back towards the rider for clearance. The tank will need protection for doing this. It will need to be well strapped in too.
