Wrong front fender. The model is called "California Titanium".

Anyone looking at this bike should also ask for documentation that the hydraulic cam recall was done.

The Calis are a nice ride.

Yeah. Move the pegs back another 8"-12" and raise the rider's seat about 6" and they'd have something.

It's a big block, California Titanium. Hydraulic lifter engine.

I agree with the R1200R. A friend just picked up a HD Road King and we've ridden a bunch of leisurely cruises since he got it. I feel like I should get a cruiser too, hence the r12r. More power, 300lbs lighter, more fun!

Those things were like hen's teeth back in the day. Can't imagine trying to keep one on the road nowadays.
Good luck with all that. I understand chasing the weird.
