you can find a dozen hardley sportsters at mos jap cycle shops in tejas. 883s are thro away bikes.Snake River Yamaha here in Boise, ID only sells Yamaha/Star and, to be honest, was a little surprised that they've 10 Harley-Davidsons up for sale as trade-ins.
hardley would do a better job of keeping first time buyers if they would quit pushing that handicapped bike. folks tell you can fit it out to 1200 for lot$a bux. but it has a lower gear set and shakes too much.
Most new hardleyittes spend a fortune on krome and then take big loss on trade up (they never get the bigger sportster) or trade it in on a REAL bike at the jap store.
the few who pony up the diff and get the 1200 dont seem to mind it for a couple years b4 they go large. had both, big diff. hardley should quit cheating people out of the joy of riding a real bike with that 883. poncho
