Got The Pig Home

Well, as I mentioned before the white stuff began to fall back in Nov (I think) that I was going to change up the look of the Harley a bit - Well, I brought her home today and thanks to Andy (Bek) for coming through for me - The kindness of the folks on this board never ceases to amaze me - Bek, to you it prob meant nothing but to me, it meant a ton - Thanks again Bro for picking me up at the Metra station and dropping me off @ Heritage

Here she is and here is what I had done over the winter:

- White Wall Tires
- Gators For The Forks
- Solo Seat
- Exhaust Wrap
- Routine Engine Maint Work - Tech said she is spot on, clean and healthy

I know the White Walls may not be everyones cup of tea but I LOVE the way the bike turned out and it felt good to be back on 'er today - Just got home from a nice little (3) hour tour, a (3) hour tour

I was just going through all the old pics - Got it in '08 and it is a '99 - Original owner bought it from Heritage and traded it in on a Sporty for his wife in '07

1st pic is what it looked like when I bought it - 2nd is what it looked like when I changed a few things and rode it home - 3rd pic after the heat shields and 3 ft bitch bar - 4th pic is with Z Bars and a few other changes - 5th pic is today

Have you considered getting the pipes ceramic coated matte black? I dig the color of the wrap but would look more HD expensive w/o the wrap and I love the black.

Just a thought, either way you'll pull 18 y.o. wool like a boss with that bike.
