Default improved front brake lever effort.

Those brakes are MASSIVE. Good thing it's not fast.

It's cool but it will not sell. It's simply not fast enough at the track and will get circles run 'round it by 600 4's. This is the benchmark by which we guage motorcycles now, in case anybody missed it.

That outta do it...

It looks like they were aiming at two mutually-exclusive targets. The front end says "1957 Sportster", the rest says "Billy Bike chopper." They just don't work together.



Now, a retro Sportster - that's cool and do-able. Fork gaiters, covered rear shocks, maroon-and-cream paint, flat seat. That'd be just the ticket for grabbing a Five Dollar Shake at Jack Rabbit Slim's.

You really have got to admire Harley's penchant for line extensions. 73 different bikes in each line that are virtually identical and it still seems to be working for them.



I kinda like the looks of this thing but it seems like anyone over 5' 5" tall is going to have a tough time fitting on it.



So, it's basically a 1200 Custom with some black paint and a few cosmetic doo-dads and a goofy name.



They'll probably sell them all.
