Sad Day - The HD Has Gone On Vacation

Heritage Harley just picked her up - God I love that bike - Been sitting in my Garage for over 2 months of not being ridden, in the cold, fired right up

Now, I have a few months ahead of my for planning on what i want to do to her over the Winter - Rims are always the first thing to come to mind - Exhaust too but I have grown to like my old school exhaust as it matches the theme of the bike

I think I am going to do some seat work - Full double seat all the way up the Bitch Bar

Take a look and make any suggestions - Please, no stupid shit either (i am gonna get flamed for adding that)

I have toyed with the Solo Seat idea and losing the bitch bar which would allow me to do a whole bunch of stuff with the rear - BUT, I like having the 2 up option as I have tooooo many females that like riding on this bike - They LOVE having the bar to lean back on - If I can make that even more comfy, it is a win win

I have to confess, I did a search on google images and there were a few single seat bobbers I would like to see in person because they looked like they offered a comfy ride and fun to scoot around on locally. As for hauling around females just spring for a limo and let them admire you from behind. That's how a true pimp would go.

All this talk about a cafe' you'll spend more at HD on some wheels than the whole old school rebuild.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

I would have to unload this bike before I could go Cafe - I don't have room for (4) bikes - HD Street - KX Dirt - Husky Supermoto - No room for the Cafe Bike

No, I was referring to the ones I saw on google images. I actually spent a bit of time browsing and heard myself make the Hmmm noise for a few. I have always taken the minimalist route and some builders out there are starting to do the same. Not that I would give someone else $$$ to take parts off for me, but it is something I might add to my ToDo list for future ownerships. Oh yeah and those rims are BadAss.

The bad part is I am super busy at work. I'm just getting back at him from leaving that scooter at my house.

So yes I'm having a ball. I think I will continue this for the next few hours or so. Any requests?
