I still like it at first glance though.

That's right,it's a big twin and not unit construction so hardley an XR type of bike IMHO.
I still think Mert's XR1200 is the best and truest modern XR.

Mert's bike is OK but it sure got fat hangin' the oil tank out there to clear the wacky rear suspension. The price is a bit unreal,too. For less you could buy a Champion frame and outfit it with a Sundance XR motor.

roadster, where are you going to get a new Champion frame? I thought they quit making those a long time ago.

Default New XR

I love it, even though it does make me feel old

Makes it a 1,000% easier to say "Harley's ROCK".... and really mean it.
