My Bikes

I'm into older Harley's (1983 FXSB in the foreground; 1987 FXR in the background)



The 1983 after a little winter rehab:

I totally agree, but try telling that to a dealership....they won't even work on them anymore (I do my own work anyway....). Besides, I said "older", not "old".

Thank you. I've spent the last several years fixing them up (they weren't in bad shape, just not "loved").

Thank you.

The Evo is nice also but nothing like a shovel. I have a 2007 deluxe and it is a nice bike but it just doesn't produce that sound a shovel does.

This is my son's. From the ugly blue to the bobber. He did all of the work hiself.

Your son did VERY well!!!!! The two of you should consider joining Shovelhead.US . We're a very close knit group and can offer a lot of help, if needed. Having a shovel is definitely a plus, but not an absolute.
