I like all the varieties of sportsters. You can change them to any style! Right now I've been setting up for "cafe'/streetfighter" cuz it fits my body.

As I mature maybe the "post-apocolytic" style, whateverthefck that means

Hi Erik.

I am stuck between street fighter and Caf`e.

That's my opinion too. But my own 1200C has too much chrome

I like the Bobber style at this point, I may change my mind in the future. It just has that, I worked on this thing myself and stripped the factory looking stuff off to make it look like my own style thing going on. I haven't seen a sportster I don't like yet though.

Looks like mine don't fit into any of the one's listed on the poll

Stock -ah no
bobber - no
cafe- not likely
touring- LOL
street fighter - long way from it

Wheres the custom look on the poll? I like all styles of sportys some just choose different looks and different styles, but hey thats the fun of it.
