Cox's Harley Davidson Testimonial

Contacted you on a heritage classic Cox's had listed. And mentioned I was really looking for a FLHPI, but they can be hard to find. Dan stated they had a 2005 FLHPI that been a trade in and had not been listed yet. Dan sent me some pictures and the deal was done. Everyone was very helpful from sales,service and delivery. Taking the time to explain the differences from my previous 1988 FLHP to the 2005 FLHPI. I have highly recommended Cox's to friend's. While not the closest dealer to Ft Bragg, it was better to make the trip and have this positive experience, riding away happy.
