Ever seen a pic of a girl that was a freaking knock out, only to see her in person and it looked like she lost a fight?

That's my impression after seeing it up close yesterday. It was an "ok" $7k bike, but $13k? Not so much. I have seen a lot of the $12k bobber's with 80" EVO's in the $12k range that I would like better if I were in the market.

My wall paper has been changed back to GGII.

I like the pics of the bike, but when reading the specs and saw a 2.1 gal gas tank, not sure I would go that route

The 72 is an amazing bike, its about time Harley did a bike like this. If I were buy one I'd probably have to convert it from fuel injected to carb hahahahaha.

I think carbed sportys sound better idling than FI ones. Why's that?

72? I thought the title was about my long ago 1972 Sportster!

That is a very cool looking bike, too bad I am too old and fat.

Saw one up close (and sat on it) today at a bike show. Pretty impressive looking. I don't think Harley's done a factory custom quite like this before (correct me if I'm wrong). Some pretty crazy paint and a lot of mods to the standard sporty. I want mini apes again now.

Personally I just like carb better, easier to service and more play with the idle. No reason to drop crazy faces down over someone's personal opinion.

checked out a 72 up close today, bright cherry red metal flake.
allz I can say is this is a sharp sharp bike. go to skinny 16 inch apes, put on a slighlty skinnier rear tire, a sissy bar, change the exhaust to something less gay-ish, and put a sprung seat on it, and we gots a winner.

price at the dealership was $11,400
