Oh yes but with the black pipe option and duel front disks.(might be this year's option package) Thanks for posting.
The frame is still 40 years old and the motor hasn't really changed but every thing else is modern and up to date. Even has CHAIN drive. With a cheap donar you could have a fairly decent bike for $10k+ if you had to have a HD.

It's a really nice looking, well balanced package.

This is the 2012 option package.
I can't believe I even look at these bikes. I mean, it's HD we are talking about. With a little better swing arm and a modern UJM V-Twin I could go for that. Ugh, wash my mouth out.

I see what you're saying.

This is my all time fave of the genre. I cannot speak for a little while after looking at this.

Yes, I agree. An Italian work of misery.
