        I assume by soft tail you mean any swing arm frame as opposed just the Harley soft tail style with hidden shocks. For street use, I don't like the fat rear tire. I could be wrong hear but in my mind you don't have enough weight on a chopper to hold that fat tire to the road in various street conditions. Its one thing when you heat a tire up doing burnouts before the start line to heat the tire up, but on the street I think they have a serious traction problem.

        I just went to that chopper handbook site and they don't seem to thrilled with the fat tire bikes either.

          Even less thrilled here. http://www.jockeyjournal.com/ Some of the best bike builders in the world. Not the "as seen on tv" guys. Thats not saying some of the tv guys didnt build some sick bikes. Trevoline, Johnny Chop RIP, etc. Alot of the same faces as on the Handbook.
