  • '05 Sportser 1200C Is a Great Bike

    Nov 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of power, very sporty, great 'round town bike, exceptional quality
    Cons: Expensive, firm seat

    Summary: I bought my 1200C last April after about a year of procrastinating about getting back on a bike. It had been 25 years since my motorcycle days of yesteryear. I knew I wanted a Harley but every model other than the Sporty just looked too big and ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Harley resale value, good looks, small gas tank, HOG
    Cons: Vibration, seat, oil leak, small gas tank, accessories expensive, air cooled

    Summary: My bike is actually a 100th anniversary two tone 1200 custom. After being out of the motorcycle world for 12 years I dived back in with the best motorcycle available (so I thought). Previous motorcycle was a Honda Shadow 700 and I wanted the ... read more

  • Great Starter Bike

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Handles well and gives the raw feeling of riding a true vintage motorcycle.
    Cons: The comfort level of the bike is quite rough and hard. Engine quality is suspect.

    Summary: I spent a considerable amount of time on my '01 1200 Custom. I have made almost every external and fuel system/exhaust system upgrade possible. The bike is fun to ride and give a true down-to-earth motorcycle feeling. The bike has a classic design and ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, Beautiful, Great Handling
    Cons: Vibrates like a paintmixer on LSD at Interstate speeds

    Summary: I have been riding motorcycles since I was a child, and this is my first Harley. I bought this one used, but in great condition. It is powerful in stock condition (however, when I bought the bike it already had Screamin' Eagle pipes). Also, I use it ... read more

    Pros: Lot's of chrome!Comfortable forward controls,maneuverable,unmistakable sportster styling.
    Cons: No tach or fuel gauge,mirrors vibrate too much,stock engine too restricted.

    Summary: I was pretty much set on a Harley from the start but checked everything else out first.I was having trouble justifying even $10,000 on a motorcycle let alone $40,000 for a big block chevy Boss Hoss.So I settled on the only Harley I could afford to make ... read more

    Pros: Great looks, Fun to ride, Forgiving for new riders
    Cons: Pricey, lack of a tachometer, some vibration between 65 and 70 mph.

    Summary: I am a brand new rider. I decided to learn this year as part of a mid life crisis. Just turned 50. A friend of mine said you have to get a Harley. Since I didn't know any better, I went out and bought a Harley. Since I had never ridden before I ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid feel, plenty of power, great sound....It's a Harley!
    Cons: Lots of vibration around 70MPH. The clear coat paint leaves lots of swirl marks.

    Summary: The Harley 2001 XL 1200 Custom is a beautiful bike. Mine is vivid black, and it looks great. But remember, swirl marks are easier to see on dark colors. To get that deep Harley sound, I replaced the stock pipes with Screaming Eagles...ka-thump. Since ... read more

    Pros: Looks, sound, quality of construction.
    Cons: Vibration, oil blow by, hard seat.  Deal with it.

    Summary: Bought a 2003 XL Custom in Black and Silver last year after many years without a cycle.  This thing has as much chrome as can be added plus a tank bra and an AME Chopper Kit with 13 degree rake.  Oh, did I mention drag pipes.  The power, ... read more
