A little history, my wifes grandfather owned the junkyard where the first 5 episodes were shot for the Dukes of Hazzard in Conyers Ga.

She remembers seeing them drive the car up and down the road shoot scenes.

Have to learn how to respect tham all. It's us against them. We don't turn away anyone at our shop. They have their problems like anyone else.

The one thing I dislike is people being close minded on either side.

I try and educated the HD riders just like the metric riders.

It's funny I get snubbed if I ride my HONDA ST1300 by HD guys and I get snubbed by the metric guys when I ride my Electra Glide.

Dang I can't win for nothing.

Here's a little Panhead we built about 3 years ago.

1955 motor, HD rigid frame, 4 speed transmission, kick start, beer keg oil tank, spring front end, custom pipes.

Went and test road a vrod... bought a VTX1800 for half the price... way more power and torque and a more comfortable ride.... went and test road a buell XB12Scg was SEVERELY let down by its lack of power ... bought a honda 919 for half the price and got a more comfortable better performing ride.

But hey to each his own.... just dont say im ignorant, i respect all motorcycle riders... but the ones who think HD's are better than anything else are by far the most ignorant.


EDIT - My original post was nothing against the bike... i think its pretty sweet, love the general and the dukes.. i was just continuing a tradition of pointing out the POS harleys haha.

You have made the same ignorant remark in more than one thread over the past few weeks. And, now you are attempting to defned yourself with I rode one or two and then bought something better for half the price. Congratulations, you rode a V-Rod and one Buell. Now you are an expert!

The RC is half the price of a 998, therefore, the Duc is a POS in your arguement? I think the Speed Triple is a far superior bike than the 919 for only a few dollars more, but I don't think the 919 is POS ...

i yi yi... dude its called A JOKE! chill out... im not saying that because the vtx and 919 were less than the harley equivalent that they are now better and stems into every other bike comparison... im just saying thats one of the reasons why i bought them less money for a better product... god damn someone must have a harley in their garage and is trying to justify it being there even though it leaks oil all over his perfect garage floor

If you truly respected them, you would not have made the comment in the first place. If you want to continue a trend of putting others down for the bike they ride, how do you expect them to ever hold you up if/when the time comes for it?

We've all done it to get a rise or laugh from others but I, for one, am trying to get past all that petty nonsense. We're all riders sharing the same joys of freedom that piloting a motorcycle provides. Scroll to the top of this page and take a gander... That you ride is more important than WHAT you ride.

Nice work, I don't think anyone would argue the fact that you did good on that one!

Its a shame when a thread gets hi-jacked and turned into a metric vs. HD debate and at the top of the screen, it says:

"That you ride is more important than what you ride"

Remember it's us against them!

Wanna see more.

1973 FLH original paint, double white wall tires, just sit back and cruise.

Runs like a top. My brother rode it on two trips last year round trip on each about 800 miles. We call it Barney.

You have my ST in the corner.

We should talk. I've had an interesting project in mind for years now. I want to make a 1940's copy of my modern day Springer, but using new parts from V-Twin or other sources. Same color scheme, look, etc. But, traditional retro look using reliable parts.

A fairly simple project with minimal to no fabrication, more of a fit and build.

It's all there. Drag just came out with thier old book this year lots of good parts in it also. Real easy to get parts it's just making sure everything fits.

They do it on TV in 30 minutes heck how hard can it be.

Exactly ...

I've done a few projects with Dee Smith (the original Paulie Jr. from OCC). And, one with WarEagle. You may be familiar with them. Worked with R&R on the first 147ci engine and prior to them H&L.

I don't know Dee but I know R&R they build some wicked stuff. We have a friend that built a monster last year and sent some thnigs to them. I remember when first come out with that motor. People could not believe that they built one that big.

It's funny I used to sell rollers on ebay when it was hot and the TV thing was jumping. People think heck I can build a bike...duh. It's not hard but you have to have certain things and skills/tools to make it happen.

V-twin has some really good looking OEM style frames. We have a friend that builds some shovel and pan stuff out of those. You almost can't tell the difference except the welds are better.

We may be selling the 01 bike and moving to something else. We already have another set of pan cases and a set of flathead cases. The next one is going to be real cool and different for sure.

What do you mean? It doesn't just bolt together?

It is funny when every guy that has a socket set thinks they are a builder. I think it is more the male ego or testosterone. I'm feeling a bit more old school and mellow these days. Did the monster engines, 300 back tire, single-side, juice, etc. Almost did a W, but lack of time killed that. Now, I'm heading toward classic panheads and knuckles with modern tech and reliability. Maybe a Ural 2-wheel sidecar. A CBX. Time is a constraint these days, therefore, either I buy something in great shape for a small fortune or build to my specs for not much more.

Panheads and Flatside shovels are hot. They have been picking up steam.

Knucks are just thru the roof. We were looking for a Knuck for a while but settled on a 1964 Pan almost all original. Has been painted but real original.

We keep an ear out for all of these because they make the most money.. We always buy a good one and sell one thats not so good. Just gotta keep upgrading. Here is a shot of the 1964.

I always find it hilarious when a metric rider removes all their badges, name plates, etc. Why? Be happy with what you have ...

As a born and raised Southerner, always have a soft spot for the General. As for the backwards you lady, she is probably looking for a vanity mirror. Were in Lawrenceville are you at?

Pretty sure they do it so it looks like a really really quick Harley!

It's a poor mans Screaming Eagle kit - just remove labels and ride.

Heck no leave it the way it is. I'm going to do a Youtube on it soon and post it. I'll let you know when I get it up.

i find it hilarious that harley owners have to put the brand name all over everything they own...... including tattooing it on their bodies... the skank that rides on the back of their above said harley... their jacket... their trucks... their cars... coffee cups....

they are keeping that p.o.s company in business just from the merchandising alone.....

what tragic fashion victims.... *(or total leather queens who have not completely come out the closet)....not that there is anything wrong with that...

I removed the badges from my wifes Windstar because it made a huge difference in how it looked.

No more Windstar or model designation on the back, it looks 1000% better.

And I've done the same to many other vehicles, for me, it is not the brand, but the asthetics.

Left them all on the 944, seems like someone actually spend some time making sure they looked right -

On a similar note, it did not used to be totally uncommon to swap badges - GS/KZ1000/1100 and GS/KZ750/650 side cover emblems were many times direct replacements for each other - more than one incredibly quick 750's roaming around in the olden days.

What I really think is fun are the "turbo" and other emblems added to vehicles that are not "turbo" or "R" models, but hey, whatever!

Back on topic, a lot of people used to paint over the Harley emblem, custom personalized paint jobs, back in the day when it was more about the rider than the brand.......

From the sound of it, the motorcycling brotherhood is divided, broken, and not what it once was.

At least for some.......
