Default Carb + Rubbermount = Collector's Item?

Carb'd Rubbermounts are/were only made for 3 years right? Do you think the carb'd rubbermounts will be collector's bikes?

Yeah, I think they will double in value within the next 10 years since EFI came out...
I'll sell you my '06 1200C for $15,000... you can turn around and make a KILLER profit in a few years.

No doubt there'll be some gullible fools that'll believe that something that only had many thousands is unique........

I agree, to have any real collector value something must be rare and hard to find.
Rare Harley= stock Harley. I doubt many rubbermounts will survive in that form. I know mine sure won't!

The 2004 models are all by themselves as any year before or after are different.

That's true and if someone has a 3/4 inch axle fetish maybe they'll pay more for an '04 than an '05 .
