    I don't recall seeing a single negative comment no matter which thread you posted pix of your bike on... in fact I think Tattooo's response above was the first I've read.

    For all intents and purposes your '97 is the same as a '98 or even my 2001 with the only differences being stylistic changes between Custom and Classic models or those sold in California.
