Hahahaha, after only having ridden the new bike home and about 2 blocks after that, I was literally a cat's whisker away from trading it yesterday. Smoking deal...but decided I wanted to do my build. Would have only cost me $130/mo for 3 years after trading the new Roady and a little cash....lol

Has all the bell's and whistles, 2014 with only 15K miles. It was actually VERY hard to pass up, but the satisfaction comes from building it myself.

Dude you would have loved that bike,if it is the 1900 motor. Anyone who rides can't believe how it runs. I have owned 16 bikes over 54 yrs and I don't want anything else.

Oh, I'm well aware. Bike is/was phenomenal. Ready to ride and needs nothing except maybe a slightly larger front wheel and a different front fender. Previous owner was actually at the dealership and told me everything he did to the bike. About $5K in extras on it. It was really, REALLY hard to pass up, but I decided to go with what I've wanted to do for a while and build a full-custom, ground-up build

I payed $6300 for mine a year ago and the General mgr of a local Harley dealer tryed to get me to sell him mine , he was getting to the point I almost took it. He finally said you don't even have to buy a bike just sell that Stratoliner and he offered me $10,000 cash.
My wife said you could have bought another one, but I would have to start buying what I have on it , it is just right . So I know if it is not exactly what you have in mind it just won't do. To me there is nothing that can compare to what I have , he was want to sell me a Road Glide for $19k with him kicking in $10k of it. But it wasn't what I wanted , I like my bike. 2 Years ago before the Strat the Road Gide is the one Harley I wanted.

Why would you pay $9000 more for what you already have.
