Anybody Paying Attention?
Fred 'Krugger' Bertrand won the AMD World Championship of bike building with this V-rod based custom earlier this year. Completely awesome, but more to the point the best example yet to suggest that H-D has missed the fucking boat by not putting the V-rod engine into a sport bike chassis. These engines make over 100hp bone stock, but Harley has stubbornly kept them in a chassis that handles with the grace of a fat girl on ice skates. They pay lip service to the public about how they want to attract younger riders. This would be a way to do it, much more so than painting your Sportsters flat black and acting like you just reinvented the wheel. Take a break from beret shopping Willie G and get on this shit!
