you're kidding, right?

so went down the rabbit hole and found this: https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/...GER-5009750667

now i like me a springer, but there is absolutely no way that i'm paying more for a 16 year old bike than i paid for my 2019 rgs.

i especially like this line: "Bike has been inside garaged for the entire ownership period and NEVER been driven in inclement weather, or at night, or dropped."

now, i've heard of riding in the rain, though, i gotta admit, i think these things are actually built for outside weather, but i never considered that riding in the dark would be harmful.... who knew?

i think this one is gonna be for sale for a long time.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Yeah, that guy is dreaming. "Oh, I put all this extra stuff on it, so I'm damn sure getting all that back, plus the bike cost when I bought it."

Cut him a break , he has been sitting on it for 16 years. Money tied up in it. He should at least make back the investment, after all it is a " MINT H-D 100th Anniversary Heritage Springer Softail and ONE-OF-A-KIND"
$5,000 in add ons should be wirth at least $10,000 by now.

I assume that offer is only if he puts it back 100% factory.

You can't swing a dead cat in this shop without hitting a 100th Anniversary anything. Soooo many of those out there.

If pigs could fly... I wonder if the Super Duper Stage-1 dude was sober when he placed the aforementioned ad. It might be a special bike that has only ridden in daylight, but as already stated, it's not even fully original.



This bike on the other hand, a 2007 model Softail Springer Classic, made to look like a a knucklehead is one of a kind and worth some extra dough but not the sucker-price asked by the former.

That's a cool build. But to me it's like putting SS badges on a Malibu. I couldn't do it.
