Thanx for the kind comments guys....I forgot I even posted this thread....
I wish she was my bike, the chix dig it. It goes ok I guess, but I prefer my Honda's. Its uncomfortable for me, as I set it up for my boss, who's a lot taller. The balls of my feet just touch the forward pegs, so its a little unnerving for me to ride, and it revs so low its like I'm riding a tractor...hehe
The wheels are solid, what a polishing job! I like the solid polished look as it looks like it has no rims. I recently just fixed up the cables to the front, as the front braided line was just too short. I'll ask my boss what size motor it is, I figured it was an S&S from the writing on it. I transplanted it out of the other fatboy he has. He knows his Harleys, but has zero mech knowledge, hence why I built it. The one that was in it previously had a bent crank or something so it shook like mad. I don't really know much about Harleys, I just bolted it together, shopped for the bits out of a big catalog, sprayed it and polished for ages, but spent time on doing things right so it wouldnt fall apart like those guys ones on TV. Lots of blue loctite on this one!
I wish I had all that money to spend on my bike!!!
Down under the construction thing has slowed down a lot, and the boss is selling it. Today a guy looked at it and offered 40k for her. I think it would be nice to see it in a show and shine sometime, or maybe Easyrider mag with a hot nekkid chika all over it......
