LowRiderCustom wants to know Dino or Syn?

It had a couple of extras, but I added a removable windshield and a sissy bar backrest/luggage rack. Those few things added almost 1 g to the price - still a lot less than new. You'd have a hard time convincing me that a new regular - line bike, with the extras I'd want, is worth it.

The CVO's, on the other hand, might make sense if you must have new and want some serious upgrades that would cost you more than buying the CVO.
I bought a nice Mustang seat and a HD sissy bar/backrest on ebay for about $200 for both items. So it's possible to add a lot of extras without breaking the wallet if you shop other than HD dealers for the items.
