Well it is not new it is 13 yrs old, but it has only done 24,000 miles ,and it has the full service history, it is a 1300 Fiesta and looks as new apart from one small rust spot on the door post, the last owner had it serviced every time it went in for an MOT..

Wow, a 1300? My truck is a 1998 and I thought that was old!

My old Evo-powered Wide-glide was a 1340. Some things really last.

Andre, that is almost new in my book, and even if i were richer than i am, i would never buy a NEW car, it is akin to throwing a grand down the drain.

Yes, those Harlies were hewn from solid blocks of iron and aluminum.

I know, that was my idea too. However right now I have NATO (tax free) privileges which will disappear next year. I will never buy a new car again.

I always buy used. The only exceptions in the past 25 years or so have been my '85 Evo-powered Fat Bob, and my 2005 Twin-cam Softail. Some people really abuse bikes, and Harleys hold their values well, so I've taken the opportunity to buy a couple of them new so that I can treat them properly and make them last.
