When we deal with choppers, we always have to look at the aesthetics, after all we're wanting to make a beautiful machine.

One of the parts about some choppers that I don't like at all is the strange open space between the top of the engine and the tank and frame. I like the form following the function, and there really isn't a function for that gap. This model and some others have that gap that needs filled with something.

More engine maybe? Booyeah!

Good that they decided to maintain its main features including its slickness because these are the things that define the chopper motorcycles. The price is still quite high though despite it being lowered down.
