Default Which VTX motorcycle cruiser should I buy?

I've been shopping for a VTX cruiser for a while and I have it narrowed down to two similarly priced 1300s. Please help me decide by providing reasons and advice from your experience. If its a close call, please state how much of a difference in price would cause you to change your choice. Here are the motorcycle profiles:2003 Honda VTX 1300R RetroRetro Style Spoke Tires14700 milesFoot PadsExtras: windshield, saddlebags, hand grips, crash bars, Custom Paint Job (Raiders'theme), sissybar2004 Honda VTX 1300C ClassicStylish Cast Tires7400 milesFoot PegsExtras: windshield, saddlebags, sissybarI will be using the motorcycle as my primary means of transportation. This means riding to work, all around the Bay Area, and longer road trips. Thanks for your help!

I'd go with the 04 w/7400 miles. Spokes really do required some maintenance, and at nearly 15,000 miles for the 03, I'm willing to bet there has been none. Cast wheels do not flex as much as spoked wheels, but cannot be re-trued if misaligned. You can always get crashbars later. Personally, I prefer floorboards over footpegs, but those to can be purchased later.Plus, no matter how much people love their custom paint jobs, when it comes time to sell, one man's art is another man's graffiti.
