    Thank you for the correction. I was aware of the parts sharing and just figured the apple had to be near the tree. Right hand shift kinda cemented it in my mind...for the last 40 years or so.

    Wouldn't reproduction parts have a massive effect on price?
    Go look at a 700 lb big twin that makes 56 hp and 72 Ft/lbs of torque and tell me that's a speed demon.

    Go to an HD rally and tell me who owns them, better yet go to sturgis and tell me you aren't in dirtbag hell. I don't remember anything about a zz-top beard, but I do make the joke of "how do you keep a harley owner from charging at you in a fight? kick out his cane".

    with HD's, almost every WL or WLA is going to have some repop parts on them. They were tough bikes but they lead the tough life that a vehicle being treated like toilet paper would. Plus the vibration tends to crack parts, esp stamped sheetmetal fenders. If the bike was an all original, unmolested, unrestored example it would be nearer to $20K. But every better than nice rider I have seen is right around $10K. besides have you ever seen a harley 10 years old or older that has never been fucked with?

    Years ago I'd change direction and walk away from dirtbag Harley riders. now I ask them if they have an opening to get my teeth cleaned.

    It's the new Hipster Harley rider. They're known as RUBs, Rural Urban Bikers.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.
