Buy­ing used? Go Har­ley

MCN - - LIFE ON BIKES - Mark Newby, email

I’ve just bought a great used bike. It came with no cam­chain wor­ries to trou­ble me be­cause it has a pushrod OHV en­gine with main­te­nance­free hy­draulic tap­pets. Nor does it have any fancy gad­gets to ei­ther dis­tract me while rid­ing or go wrong at some point. More­over, it has belt drive so there are no nasty oily chains or worn sprock­ets to main­tain and re­place. Sure, it isn’t fast and nei­ther is it nim­ble or per­haps to ev­ery­one’s taste, but it sounds great, can be main­tained at home and de­liv­ers good mpg too. Yep, my Har­ley Sport­ster has proved to be a great used buy.
