Street Bob or Softail Slim?

I am thinking about buying a used Street Bob or Softail Slim. They are close in price range for a used bike. The Street Bob has a million parts for customizing but some tell me to go with the Softail Slim for the modern suspension. Any thoughts, pros/ conns on this topic?

Thanks for the heads up but I need to sell my current bike before I buy another.

Both are nice bikes but all Softails have the shocks under the frame and is harder to change the oil. Remember that with those models you change the oil in 3 areas. The screw for the transmission is on the middle of the shocks and is tricky to reach it. at least for me because I dont have a bike lift.

It was a for me and even when I bought a cheap lift from Harbor Freight, I still had a hard time getting in there.
