I am "Buggin" - Need A New....

Some one just steel my HD so I can pick up something like one of these - I just LOVE the simplicity of these builds as they remind me of the sleek 70s Choppers that i grew up dreaming about.....

I know Gus could build me one in a heartbeat.........and I am a fan of his work

Yeah...If you rode that for an hour on a rustic road with cracks and repaired pothole bumps for an hour you'd need surgery again!

It's like I've told the youngsters that think they invented the current "chopper craze"...This trend will die just like it did in the '70's once the pain of riding hardtails starts to kick in on the twenty something spines as they become thirty something spines!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

Just kicking around ideas and by no means am I looking at a bike like this for long rides - It would be a puts around town on bike and I am not too worried about fads dying as I have loved this style since I was a kid and have tried to get my FXDX as close to it as I can without going balls out chop it up crazy

The bikes are cool. Hate the bars. Never liked Ape Hangers. It would be neat to build one with a Triumph 650 mill in it vs. Yamaha. Something like this would be styling.



+1 on avoiding a hardtail with your back.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
