Default H-d Fxr

I found this beauty at my buddy's shop in Encinitas. It's a 1990 FXR. It's very clean. Mostly stock. S&S carb, mid-glide forks and upgraded brake rotors, Bub exhaust. The paint is tastefully done.

The owner will sell it for 12 grand. So much for those falling Evo prices!

Sorry for the crappy picture. I took it with my phone.

Happy birthday, Buz. For a second, I thought you were announcing your self bought gift.

It's tempting and I really like FXRs, but 3 bikes in the garage(4 if you count the Cuddymobile) is enough for now.

Selling it for $12 k is fine, finding someone to pay that much maybe an issue............

Happy B'Day Buzz

I'm still having difficulty in understanding why someone would pay $12K for an 18 year old Evo when a 2008 TC96 FX is only $11,995. But then I don't understand reality TV either.

'Cuz in two years, that '90 will be a Classic, whereas the '08 model is just some made-O'-tin POS...........

BTW - Happy Burfday, Buz!

Well dude, they don't make 'em anymore!

I just cruised by the Stealership today and they had zero 1125r Buells.

...you're another year old today. We'll have some pie and sandwitches, and chocolate ice creme too, we'll sing and play, the day away, and one more thing I'm gonna do...

I'l clean all the sparkplugs on your two strokes too, and when I do a wish I'll make, I'll blow out the spark plugs on your birthday cake, you're another year old today!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! YOU'RE ANOTHER YEAR OLD TODAY!

(as you can see I've been hanging around the still again...hic..)
