I was headed for HD when the big fenders of an 01 Chief at Sarasota Indian caught my eye.

No regrets, but I would have spent more time riding and waaaaay less time wrenching if I had picked up the Fatboy.

Nice compilation. One wonders how much Arnold had to to with Harley's success story.

Hey I remember you had to get in line & usually pay extra for the privilege

 

of possessing a brand new HD back then.

 

Even most of the used were overpriced & few available which stoked

 

the craft-built small timers to try to flood the market with upgraded S&S powered

 

hand-built sleds.

 

HD made & makes mo' $$ on the clothing & accessory lines than they ever will on scoots.

Shit hasn't changed. Was in an HD dealership with my friend Thomas yesterday to get a new battery for his VRod. A 115 anniversary Fatboy was stickered at over $23k and listed a $1700 dealership mark up right on the tag...which did not include the dealership prep fee.

Speaking of dealerships. Just closed escrow on a nice duplex [fixer upper] in Hermosa beach Kalifornia. Now, when I spend time in Hermosa I'll b close to Bartells [brand X dealership] not to mention an Indian dealership or two.

Niagra (1953) staring Marilyn Monroe, two cops on Indian Chiefs, most likely the last of the Springfield manufacred Chiefs.
