I can take off all the extra junk. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a Street Glide but the price tag is a bit to steep for me. I would enjoy taking a perfectly good Electra or Ultra Glide and stripping it down to what I want.

Depends on your riding style.. EG and UC are about same price



You buy a Street Glide because you like that style!!!!!

It's lowered, makes handling in turns more stable, adjust your shocks and tires air pressure to the weight your toting and let it eat asphalt. The fenders are plain and clean without the parking and marker lights.. has rear fascia that blends into the bags hiding the wide 180 rear tire, don't have all the chrome doodads around bags or fenders...rear plate is under the light bar... has tank filler plate from seat to tank..it's a more sleeker looking motorcycle that's a fashionable bike most want to emulate??

Any things possible... You ain't buying a Harley to save money!

You got me on that one.. I've got my eye on a used 07 SG. It's a little high I think at $11,700 with 64k on it

Ideally a little high... trade in is $9350 versus $12650 retail from dealership..


07 is when HD converted to hydraulic cam tensioner versus spring loaded..

Not sure what part of country you in.. but winter is coming and so is falling prices if people wanna move them rather sit on them they will sell if you dangle cash in their face
