there were more customs in the showrooms in those days, hence more sales. i think the market was more for chrome than dual discs. i haven't researched the production numbers for '04-06, but i'm sure they made (and sold) more stylish bikes than the more functional r's.

I made it a point to get a rubber mount with a Carb. So many parts added on a FI 2007 & up. I like the idea of a simple timing only computer and no fuel pump to fail.;

• New air cleaner cover
• Brake calipers, master cylinder, switch housings and handgrips replaced, now exclusive to Sportster models.

Its running about what I thought:
883 ( 897 total)
1200 (1,366 total)

More balanced between the 883 models and a clear bias to the Custom for the 1200 bikes.

Much better look than your previous pic. I like that you kept the blinkers on the bars!
