So, the wife bought a 750 shadow at the same time I bought my X back in 07 (my x was a leftover 06) and last fall she sold it back to the dealer, she decided it was too small, not fun to ride and never rode it, she broke even on it, no big deal. Now spring is springing and she has decided she wants another bike, as finances go we can't afford her a new bike, but our local dealer has a 2004 1300c with 4300 miles on it, and a few extras, right at her price range of $5000.
Question is: I'm very familiar with the VTX 1300c, been here since I bought mine in 2007, but I know what I've done to mine and obviously I've never bought a used one before, I'm going to go test ride this for the wife tonight or tomorrow, so could you guys maybe give me a little input on what to look for? I know about the steering head and tires and all the basic things like check the oil or does it have any dents or anything blatently wrong, but is there something else deeper I should be watching for?
also can some of you more knowledgeable folks enlighten me as to the differences if any between an 04 and an 06, both are black c models, hopefully we add this to the stable and we'll bee a 2 X household
