The engine and exhaust are... bunch of bolt ons.

I don't want it loud, but damn it needs to be a little louder

I like Sportsters. They look really cool, but the thing I don't get is why they put such a tiny little tank on it? My little ninja has a 4.8 gallon tank. I could probably go 300 miles before needing to fill up.

The Custom gets a ~4.5 gallon tank. The lower models get the peanut tank, and I think it is a historical thing. It pisses me off because I hit the reserve at ~120 miles. My tank is the 3.3 gal peanut tank

On the upside it will give me a reason to get a bigger tank and start to customize the bike a bit later on if I keep it.

I wear clear glasses under the flip down tinted lens on my helmet
Did you get a doo-rag, yet?

Why are you selling? If I remember reading right, you have such pride in your bike?

Selling both Harleys. Going to put my wife back in school, for nursing. Madonna is not a cheap University. Hopefully get enough money to pay for half of it.

If you have any other way I would take it... the market has dropped out IMO. Bikes are cheap right now.
