Edited to make less confusing. And you’re probably right, but I’m having fun as it is with the Daytona. It’s got a bit more power than the dirt bikes I’m used to.

Congrats! That's a heck of a deal!

I was so baffled by the notion of an under-$2k Daytona that I thought you meant you already had a Rocket III... Which was still a weird thing for me to think. I think if I found a Daytona as nice-looking as that under $2k around here my head would probably explode.

It had a rod let go and create a couple extra ventilation holes in the block, so I was able to pick it up for $700. eBay had a $1200 motor with 8000 miles and I was able to sell off a few pieces (stator, clutch, header, etc) from the old motor. So now I’ve got a 18,000mile ‘07 Daytona with an 8,000mile ‘09 motor and it only took me a couple weekends to have it all fixed up. To say I’m happy with how it turned out would be an understatement.

I saw you and the Mrs. on the cover of Cafe Racer with these two bikes. Congratulations. Well deserved.

Best part is the motor can be a spare for my race bike.  smiley
