Yes, there are lots of posuer wannabees, but they have also become a media of modern art.
For those of you who, unlike Z, are not wedded to an artless, sterile life, this is the basic plan, celebrate the radical new design of the Sportster introduced in 2004 by combining the styling elements of another watershed year, 1939, with the 2004. Note how close the styling is on the 1939 EL:
So the plan we are hashing around is to change the front fork to a springer, add the 1939 fenders, seat, and the ducktail pipes, which are all available from antique motorcycle parts houses, and presto, a retro. Harley also makes a nice tire/wheel that is pretty much an exact replica of the 1939. Z, if I were you, after discovering the attempt at great art that is at the core of this endeavor, I would slash my wrists. Besides, guys on Harleys simply get more pussy.
