Yea thanks just got it I always wanted a Harley but 18 years ago I needed a street bike and a dirt bike but couldn't afford a Harley and a dirt bike so bought a Nomad 1500 and a WR 450 and finally decided to get that Harley. Hope the weather takes a turn would like to get out on it before winter sets in for good.
Not a real bike...my brother and I built this for a friend (260+ hrs). He wanted something small and easy to move around for trade shows he goes to...he has a powder coating paint company [if you couldn't already tell]. All we got was a frame, two wheels, forks/handle bars and a motor from him...even cut the kick stand off and welded it on the wrong side for ****s and giggles.
Went to motorcycle show last night. Not as busy as I thought it would be. Lots of modern retro bikes showing up from the big manufacturers. Full load touring bikes are disappearing for sport touring models.
Brother and I spent probably four hours each trying to ride the last one. Welded the adjustable stoppers on the forks to limit the turning....nothing natural about riding it. Throws you in an arse end spin you can't get out of. Got a little better with a couple of pops, maybe a little more relaxed lol. That's why that one didn't get a paint job, thought we may just pitch it. Kids are all grown up, no one rides them any more.
