It's a possibility. I'm still working out the kinks, but my current plan is based around the G-5 because the parts are already available. Also, I'm kickstart-crazy. As usual, though, the best course of action seems to be to watch, and wait patiently....but I want one nooooooooooow!EDIT: Also, there's just something about the proportions of the C-5 that offends me. I don't know for certain what it is, and it probably doesn't make any real sense, but my gut instinct is to go for the G-5.
Rusty is the DL version the same as the E-5 version that was the query of this thread?

Rusty, you need to read the very first post of this thread to understand my question. Exiledcarpenter referred to the European market UCE as an E-5. Blltrdr
Here's the rundown as I understand it:Both the U.S. and the U.K. get the C-5 model. Same colors, same frame, same fenders.The G-5 Bullet is a U.S. exclusive. It uses an old Electra frame with a 350 front mudguard and a pinstriped paint job. This also comes in a Deluxe version that has a chrome side cover, tank, and fenders. The fenders are still the larger 350 size.The E-5 Bullet is a U.K. exclusive. This one, like the G-5, shares the Electra frame, but it doesn't bother with any Bullet Classic styling cues. It has the Electra's paint jobs, fenders, etc. Everything is the same as on the Electra model except for the motor, which is, of course, the kicker UCE model. This, like the G-5, comes with a Deluxe version, which is exactly the same as a G-5 Deluxe, but with an all-chrome engine block and a skinner front mudguard (still chrome).As far as I know, that's all five of this year's models, minus the conversion kits. The C-5, two G-5's, and two E-5's, the latter four of which all share the same frame.
