Looking pros and cons of 03-1500 Classic

If anybody owns one of these carbed 03's, I'd like to know what you think of the bike in general, good or bad. I am a couple of days away from buying one with 5400 miles (9000 kilometers) Agreed price = $6000.00 :biggrin:

I have one and am very pleased with it. I have no issue with having a carburetor and in fact since you only have one carb its easy(and cheap) to dial in to any exhaust and intake mods you may want to make. I have about 20,000 miles on mine and it has been a good reliable bike. Plus if its the red/silver model its the best looking of all the 1500 classics ever made! I guess thats just my opinion!LOL
did you catch my edit...what color is it?
It is a good bike but the price is very far out of line. If you are patient you should be able to find a 1600, fully equipped for much less. My fully loaded '04 with 6200 miles was was $5,500. It is far superior to the 1500. Either way you won't lose, I just believe the price is very high for an '03.
I agree the price may be a little high, but the "far superior" part made me laugh. They are two different bikes. If you want mags, fuel injection, two disc up front, and 50 extra pounds get a 1600. But if you like the classic look of spokes(I do) go ahead and get the 1500.
Deep...as much fun as it is to discuss the differences between a 15 and 1600 it really has nothing to do with the original question:)
