Does it come with simulated oil leaks? Oh, and no hand shifter=fail.

So much easier to get off the trailer, to park on the side of the road at Sturgis.

But whyyyyy. for 600$? a plastic harley... lol. I can see where this would come in handy if you owned a motorcycle shop and you wanted to put this on a sign post etc.. but as a model? . Ill stick with these 14$ 1:12 scale models:

I thought it was going to be one of those deals like the Corvette that ran into a field and someone died in it, and they can't get the smell out....

Indeed! I found these on ebay a few years ago. I need to get back to working on them. I think they are all DRZ400E models (out of the box) but I was going to make an S, SM, and ZA model (ZA) for zombie apocalypse. It will have weapons and such all over it. Started painstakingly soldering 1mm blinking LED's for the turn signals and a white LED for the headlight. Going to add small pieces of wire as the brake and clutch cables etc.. for realism. as well as other hoses. Should look cool when done and in a case.
