My choices are.
Virago 125
Intruder 125
Marauder 125

    My hubbie has a Dragstar Classic 1100. Gorgeous bike although we've had it converted to a trike

    Yep they are that. Unfortunately im 5'6'' and those b**tards are massive. Hence the reason for the 125 version which in itself is a lovely little toy.

    You got pics of the trike?

    The guys did a great job. We spent approx £5k having it done as we didn't want it to look cheap and crap. It's a real headturner and the guy even put on Harley exhausts so you can hear it coming from miles away.

    This is his site http://www.wackeystrikes.co.uk/

    He enjoyed doing it because my hubbie just told him to get the best and build it as if it was for him and if he needed more money to let us know. Fortunately he didn't but he said it was great having so much to play with as he hated doing them on a budget. He even brought it all the way up from Devon for us too.

    None of the above.

    If I were to get a 125 Cruiser it would most likely be the Honda Shadow VT125C. Purely because it's a Honda.

    Just because one can't understand a concept, doesn't mean that it is wrong.
