I just rode a new cvo softail convertible with a 110 cu in. The bike seems to pull really hard, much more than the 96 I had. How will if fare against my muscle in a quarter mile? My muscle is stock. Very nice ride, but should be at 30 grand!

Indeed the V will smoke it no questions asked. I have a Softail Deluxe and love it, when I saw that CVO convertible I orgasmed severely... What a beautiful elegant bike!!!!:notworth::notworth::notworth:

What did that nitemare sell for? $30k?
Probably... :hidesbeh:

Nice as it is I'm not a big fan of that one except for the wheels, they're pretty cool. The one that kills me is this one, definitely no justice on pics as it is in person

Don't know about the epa 110 but I really have to wonder if my light fxstc would smoke a rod. The 120ci is some serious engine. Having ridden the newer 2012s I went looking for the differences. Down low my softail would smoke it. Once the rod hits 5k the pull was equal or better. Really hard to say but I feel it would be damn close in the quarter. Torque in the 120ci is relentless. The big difference I felt was way smoother ride on the rod but much more heavy on corners and switchbacks compared to the fxstc.

I've loved the "softail" style HDs since I bought this one new back in 1984. Selling price was $8500. And more than once I would get on it and run it out of gas before thinking about stopping.

I sometimes think I should build one with a few extra cubes and a 6 speed for long rides.

I put a set of low rider wheels and a little taller rear tire on it and that thing rode and handled pretty good.

Both tires were Dunlops but only the rear came with the white letters. I used a paint marker to make the front match.
