No. We hate Harley's here; they're slow, can't turn, can't stop, parts fall off them, and they suck.

Do you have any ideas for events for something like this Honda Pacific Coast?

Ha! The local classifieds are literally swimming in ads from people trying to get out from under their HD debt payments. One would be a total fool to pay anything even near NADA for a Harley now. Much less an auction where prices usually end up above retail.

I see a $3000 Evo in your future.

Police agencies auction off bikes from time to time. What usually happens is a local HD dealer will buy them in lots then sell them all for a set price, you just pick which one you want.

I bought a police bike like that in the '80's and thought about buying one a couple of years ago. The trouble was as Dr. Serzawa pointed out brand spankin' new '08 FLHT's were going for $18,600 OTD and the used '07 Police RK's w/ 30k on them were $14,999. Not much of a deal.

If you're in Northern California there is a free event coming that will be selling bikes and bike parts. Buying from individuals will probably be the cheapest way to go.

It's called the Sacramento Cycle Swap Meet
Below is their website:

and if you're into facebook:

Better get 'em while you can. I've been scanning the ads for Ironhead era Sportys and there are very few. What few there are are not "cheap." At least within 200 miles of me.

no, they're the new Panheads... Used to be a dime a dozen, now through the roof even with half re-pop parts
