Because a "Cheap and Gaudy Aftermarket Crap from China Meet" doesn't have the same ring to it.

I like the XLH but they probably think it's gold plated and worth $10k

I keep flirting with the idea of picking up an ironhead, but I'd want one that was basically stock before they put the 16" rear wheels on. Those are difficult to find since so many people liked to turn them into choppers. I'm not sure I want to engage in that much self-abuse anyhow.

Yurp an ironhead is on the list, right below a '71 Trident and a 250 Pursang

It's got aluminum heads! Rare! Clean title! That's at least worth umpteen million dollars!
