Yes, this is one of those things that is wholly subjective. If mine we're a Classic I'd leave it alone (although this looks kind of nice: http://autos.ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/royalenfield/photos/view/9d5e?b=3&m=s&o=0 ) However, mine is a goofy 'Classic 70's Style' Electra X. It's neither here nor there. I'm hoping there are some examples upon which I can make a decision. Most of the mods I really like are on Classics and they just can't be replicated on the Electra X (without significant mods). The saving grace is that awesome motor that just keeps getting better and better!
You know Matt, I had a look at the British site you posted under the "Clubman" topic showing various versions of the Electra X including the Clubman version and couldn't help feeling how great they looked, contoured side covers, ovum covers and all. They gave a sort of contoured looked that I find pleasing, even if not strictly Classic. But it is subjective, I know.
There are all kinds of flavors. Here's one from our own photo gallery. Not an Electra, but a real clean look:What a beauty!Matt
