Turns out you can make a boat tail into an off roader:

and, one of our own getting props as the builder:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Harley...frcectupt=true


I do, however, love how the seller describes this as an excellent handling and riding bike; but then also notes it has very few break in miles.

I've never quite understood that philosophy, but used to build bikes like this for guys regularly. The story was always similar to this one.

"I used to be a racer and want the baddest bike you can build for the street -- I don't care what it costs."

Deliver the bike, pick up the last check, and a year later see if for sale in the paper (well, online today). Miles would rarely be past 500.

Some folks like to ride, some folks like to dream about riding.

Guys really hung up on that fender... Interesting that the entire description is about the rear fender, and lifted word-for-word from here: http://www.nationalmcmuseum.org/1971...xlh-boat-tail/
