    I was trying to be nice and helpful to avoid future issues for this seller and messaged him and told him his bike was one of the new 2004 reproductions... :confused: He wasnt too appreciative and insisted that he's had this bike for 25 years...o_O You guys tell me if Im wrong..

    I'd say it's a 98/99

    ... 98-99's were more accurate ... (wrong radius and yolk on the front springer for example) .... This one is newer ...

    What gives it away is the sticker on the top tube that says made in Taiwan:) definitely a repop.

    Please don't make me feel older...three of my friends have gotten the "ball and chain" this week and it's only Tuesday!

    You're right though...it's been 20 years. Scary to think that very soon these reproductions will be vintage also!!

    You can't fix stupid, so there is no point trying.
