I knew that... because he told me.

He thought it might look good on the '68 Sportster (his "living room bike"), so he'd brought it in to see how it fit/looked.

Not me. My XS11 was a fat pig compared to the Miniceptor. I regretted selling that bike when the kids were babies. Good thing I bought one and restored it 2 years ago.

$750 paid, tons of smiles & quite a few miles in the course of ownership.

I really do wish I hadn't sold it.
