I had the 883 back in the late 80's and enjoyed it.  I think it was the last year of the 4 speed and chain drive but had the Evolution engine.  I never had any problem with it and I rode it kind of hard.  The frame of the 883 was just to small for me and after I took it on a long ride for 5 days I just knew I couldn't keep it, since it was just too uncomfortable for the interstate.  But the 883 just isn't an interstate bike IMO.  I know many people don't like Harleys for some reason but I think they are a good company.  I'm glad it came back as an American company as well.  I was at the Springfield (Illinois) Mile with a friend and I noticed that many people were asking the guy behind me to sign their program.  I finally looked around and noticed it was Willie G. Davidson.  So I asked him if he ever got tired of signing autographs and he said "never".  We talked for about 20 mins (while watching the races) and he was a very nice person and never refused to sign an autograph, and he always did it with a smile.
