Defiantly test drive it

Look under it for bad rust

Take it to a shop and have them inspect it cost money, but could be worth it in the long run

Oh I wanted map lights...the stock light was just a light...no switches or anything.

Not quite sure what you mean by that being a Harley thing...

Default The Harley Thing

I ride a Harley and generally, harleys are very personalixed by their owners. I didn't realize Ranger owners were so into customizing. Thanks for the new info.
