That's pretty nifty looking. The wannabe bad boys around here are all riding rat bikes.

Choopers are out. Rat bikes are in. I wonder how the boys at OCC are making out in these economic times.

Blacked out airbox.
Upsidedown mirrors.
Fat front tire.
Tractor saddle.
Wire wheels.

Yeah, this is the Harley that screams Dark in the middle of the night. The Harley that make young women wet, and old men cry. The Harley that makes the owner's cajones swell to the size of Florida grapefruit in December. A ride that says you bought it, hook, line, and sinker.

See your authorized Harley Dealer today for special financing offers.

I wonder why they call it a 48 when it's a 74? either way it's a cool looking bike and way more my style. I guess the OCC boys can go back to building garages and workshops again. Looks like the big-bucks chopper bite the dust.

Rat On......

Other places get Sporties with decent wheels. We get yet more chopper/bobbers with fat tires and worthless fuel tanks.

Why not paint the tank black?

Minus the looks-like-it-belongs-on-a-car front wheel, diddnt Kawasiki do this several years ago. With a bigger tank, better milage, 5 year warranty and half the price?

I've been riding rats all my life. Can I be a wannabe too?
