"1994 HD 1340 BOAT-TAIL REPLICA" ['RICCARDO TOSI' POOTUBE] . . . . I'M PRETTY FOND OF SAYING 'JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD', IN THIS CASE HOWEVER, IT'S ALL THE REASON YOU NEED . . . . WHO THE FUCK WOULD EVEN THINK OF DOING A BLOCKHEAD REPLICA OF ONE OF THE MOST MALIGNED MODELS EVER TO ROLL OUT OF THE MOTOR COMPANY'S DOORS . . . . RICCARDO TOSI, THAT'S WHO, METHINKS IT'S FREAKIN FABULOUS !!!
Willy G's acid dipped, Sportster inspired Super Duper Glide was a model most folk had a good laugh at when it hit the showroom floors in 1971, most of the boat tails were ditched almost immediately in an effort to take the radical side out of the Xperimental designation, as a result, they're pretty much rare as rocking horse shit today, although likely a little more loved than forty years ago . . . . don't know about you guys but I've never encountered an attempt at a replica, let alone on a Evo platform, at any point in the past until my eyes collided with this brilliantly conceived look-a-like last night in the hours after midnight, old mate Riccy Riccardo Tosi has done a killer job of realizing what is obviously a bike that holds a special place in his oddball heart and for me, that's the only thing that matters, sometimes just because you can is the only reason worth a squirt of Willy G's wee-wee !!!
