There is a Dyna, maybe a cvo dyna? that first used a fender/tail-light set-up exactly like the V-Rod. He could have saved all that rear-end work. It also was first to use the nacelle.

Are you thinking of the Softail Deuce? Different chassis.

Not sure, but the tail end was just like a V with struts. It's a nice look. Ya, different swimgarm for sure for sure but knowing HD and their penchant to rehash, the strut set-up could be very similar on all.

I love it! Knowing what the T Sport rode like and knowing what Buell wheels and the inverted front end do to a Vrod I'm guessing it would be closer to Buell handling than that of a Dyna. Then again I recently gave some crotch rocked boys a lesson on the Fat Bob!

It's still an abortion, no matter how you dress it up.
