    Which one would you guys go with? I am leaning towards a Night Train, because of the lower cost and I really like the blacked out motor, but wanted to hear what you guys thought.

    Night Train. I met a guy in Arizona at Motorcycle Mechanics Institute that had a Night Train. He brought it in, spent some time tweaking the stock motor on a dyno, and really unleashed some power, with minor mods and adjustments. That motorcycle looks different (has its own style), lighter than a Duece, and it was fast!

    Not saying you can't do the same thing to a Duece, I guess I just like the Night Train's better, and if I was in your shoes, that's what I'd pick. To me, Duece's are kinda Jap looking.

    Just got back from looking at the Night Train, and thats what I am getting (assuming my loan goes through). It is a 2002, 5800 miles, got it for $14500 with a good amount of chrome parts and a lowering shock. I think I got a pretty good deal on my first Harley. Night Train

    The Duece is a nice bike. My mom rides a '01 duece that is stroked to 96". It is fuel injected with alot of Screaming eagle parts. Has something like 105 rear wheel HP's.

    Thing is pretty fast.

    My dad rides a 113" '04 Swift Chopper. Thing is pretty sick. I am not into riding much but they are both really nice scoots.
