$9000 for an '86? That seems quite expensive for a 21 year old bike. And Harley's are beginning to not retain their value as much as they used too.
The FXR frame is also almost exactly the same as H-D's touring bike frame, so it can handle two up easily. I wouldn't even notice my 11 yo's back there if they didn't wiggle so much. If that bike is lowered though, the ride may be rougher. Mine has 14" shocks on the back, it's smooooooooooooth.I had read today about Buels input in this machine. The man and I are still in talks. I currently ride a 1600 Roadstar and want this as my single bike. My wife and I bought the roadstar for us. Now I want one for me.
That's a bummer, but there are more bikes out there. Keep looking, there's always a better deal to be had. Nothing wrong with the early EVO's, I had an '87 myself and it was a great ride. I have to agree that the price was a bit steap, even if it was decked out. Good luck!Well fellas I got hosed. Been gone all day and just getting in. And the fella had just recived a sweeter offer on his bike. So after he looked it over he said that it really was about 2 foot shorter than he was wanting. So I got to ride 400 miles for squat. Sorry fellas and thanks for the help.
