If we wait a while they'll do the 60s and 70s again and I can buy the XLCR I missed the first time.. But maybe not.
-There is probably a good amount of truth to that.

I liked the 70's era line-up. Sportster XLH and XLCH, Superglide FXE and Low Rider FXEF and FLH bagger. I suppose business is business but there do seem to be an awfull lot of parts bin swapping now.

ARRGH ME BUCKOS! It's a two wheeled Pirate's Treasure from your mateys at Harley Davidson. Find ye a treasure map to yer nearest Harley Davidson dealer, and dig up yer booty with the Crossbones Cruiser. Put your scabbard in yer sheath, powder in your pistols, and ride the Seven Seas in style. The wenches will be bringin the grog, and the pillaging will be rich, as soon as you're pirate's flag is raised. ARRGH!

I personally wouldn't want the ape hangers. But that seat is the quintessential cruiser seat. I've always liked the look of the old cruisers better than the new ones, and the seat's a big reason why. New skool reliability (including fuel injection) with old skool looks. Works for me.

Don't need that big a bike, though. Order me up an all blacked out Nightster with better shocks, triple disk brakes, the bigger gas tank (3.3 gallons is ludicrous), and that seat, and I'll be good to go.

She's a handsome thing. I think I'd have to swap out those bars though... for comfort reasons.
