Segment: Custom/Cruiser

Some say that the 2001 Shadow Sabre looks evil.

We'd rather say it looks exactly how a roadster should look: ample shapes, generous, low seating for two, chromed parts and deeply valanced fenders, massive wheels and a ton of pure street attitude.

The liquid cooling makes it suitable for city errands during hot days, but it's the longer getaways the 2001 Shadow Sabre is longing for. Plenty of customization options are available, too.
