    Is a 750 Street worth having?

    Hi all,
    My mate is going to look at a Street for sale on Wednesday afternoon. He’s had a couple of Evo big twins years ago but wasn’t too keen.
    He’s asked my opinion on the Street but apart from the fact I don’t really like the look of them I can’t tell him anything about them.
    Are there any particular things he should look out for, and are there any particular problems with them? Forewarned is forearmed as they say.

    Cheers, Dave.
    If I want your opinion, i’ll remove the duct tape.

    One man's meat is another man's poison. If your mate likes the look and after a test ride likes the experience then he should go for it. They are cheap and lightweight, economical to run (for a Harley) and should handle ok. Personally, for me it's too small, a diet coke version of a Harley and very bland, but I have seen on the web some great looking customised flat tracker versions.

    Well i got to sit on a Street Rod this Saturday whilst in Chester HD picking up gaskets and fasteners and thought it was a cracking thing (especially for someone with a fucked hip). I am 6' and thought it felt ok. Not sure why there isn't a rev counter on it unless its in the small digital bit where mileage would normally appear. Yes they dont have a good sound, and they appear to sound even worse with the aftermarket can on (after watching some Youtube clips) but looks like it should handle well. Hope your mate picked one up as they look like fun.
    Chester HD had offers on this weekend and the Street Rod was reduced to 6200 GBP from 7000 GBP. I reckon its a good buy and of course because they dont sell well, if your mate hates it then he can park it up in the garage for 40 years and then sell it for a fortune as all those weird and wonderful oddities that people thought were shit, 40 years are now worth bucks. Cant go wrong hey

    Sat on one at Reading H-D on Saturday and the only criticism was your heel on the right side actually rests on a rubber block on the exhaust and feels a bit odd compared to the Left one which is a standard footpeg.

    I would suggest a test ride before you part with cash instead of a Sportster noting the latter will probably retain it's resale value better.
