Either a 2006 800VL or 2003 1500 both are around $2800 and in good shape
That's like compareing apples and oranges. If your running the super slab often the 1500 might be the way to go. If your around town and back roads then I'd go with the 800. The 800 will two up nicely around town. FYI, '06 in known as Boulevard C50. "03 1500 is known as a Maurader.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.
