i came accros this article on The Bathtub Diaries blog written by Bill Garlinghouse about the history of FXR... and there is also a super-detail link to it... check it out if you're interested in some history lesson... (thank you Dan-O and Mr. Garlinghouse)
on that link, it was stated that FXR frame is FIVE TIMES stiffer in torsion than average FX or FL frame... wow, i guess that's like a Dyna frame on Viagra..!!
but my favorite quote is this buying tips:
"When buying the FXR, remind the seller that it is the "Ugly" Harley, they are NOT popular, and that the seller is lucky you're even interested in looking at the bike...
there are two type of people who own FXRs... the type who doesn't know the heck they are (in which case the above tactic may work), and the type who do know what they are... in which case they're usually not for sale..."
i guess i'm just lucky...

Roberto Totti of Bologna is one of Italy’s most prolific custom bike builders, and he’s been getting a lot of attention lately on the interwebs. One of his latest motorcycles is the 1508 Hot Rod, inspired by American custom cars from the 1960s. (The 1508 comes from the date the frame was built, 15 August.) The 750cc engine comes from a Triumph T120, with the head apparently turned 180 degrees to maintain pressure in the carburetors

Bors, meet Marni... and yes, she's my FXR... came a long way from Jogjakarta and in to my garage... i'm grining from ear to ear since last night and haven't stop smiling since... gonna start stiping her for the doodads, but the stock fenders, gas tank, and that couch would stay for a while... gonna be using my old factory mini apes just to balance the stock-hideous look... i'm too broke right now to start modifying, so i guess i'll be seeing lots of funny looks upon people's eyes when they see me riding...
