not a hardtail, I think it's a yamah Vstar 650 (used to have one), no harly's are shaft driven, and the hard tails are a rigid frame, that bike has a hidden rear shock up under the seat

think so, looks like it to me from the tank and the shaft and the rear swing arm

edit: I am positive that is a V Star, the cap on the gear box and the rear drum brake, V Star 650 I am sure

yup, i read the post above. I know its a soft tail, you can tell just by looking at the frame.

My comment was because springer seats usually find themselves on hard tails, not soft tails.

"hard tail" and "soft tail" don't necessarily refer to HD... they're more commonly used to refer to the frame of a bike and whether there's a rear spring/shock (soft tail) or it's rigid (hard tail)

i bought a custom frame when i lived in cali, never got the money to finish it, kinda rusty now, but i was gonna put a busa motor in it. then you don't have to worry about the primary drive, the seperate transmission, the oil tank... and you get 155 hp and a smoooooth ride. but everyone i talked to said that motor would break the frame and i ran out of money to try it. some harley owners told me not to becasue it wouldn't be a true custom because it'd be metric or wouldn't have the "right look"

at harley owners who "customize" their bike by buying genuine HD parts from the dealer talking about "true customs" hahahahaha

and what about all of the choppers i've seen that used the old dohc honda cb750 I-4 engine? I think the busa powered chopper sounds pretty cool
