another piece of valuable info from the geriatric crowd: these actually DO exist.werwrwe.jpg
hey cody: that pic of you on the sportster based chopper is pretty darn cool and super period-correct. never saw or heard of a "slim" in the new H-D lineup but looks like a great bike and a very nice ride. happy you found what you were looking for. regarding women/the aging process/home serenity/riding.....age 63 has taught me many valuable lessons one of which is the following: regardless of how fond you are of any particular bike....if "Queen-Bee" isn't happy on the back of it shop for something that she IS happy perched upon. it's a small price to pay to keep the Queen happy and divorce lawyers at bay.

My wife stopped riding when the kids were born, they're both grown and moved out now and I'm happy to say, she still doesn't want to ride. Especially after this last accident. I'm good with it, I get to do my thing !
I would very happily ride with my wife, but she would have to be on her own bike. I can't stand having a passenger. Ever.
Edit: And NO helmet comms!!!!!
Thanks John! For the advice and the compliments on the sportster. Had a springer on it and still had shocks when dad bought it for me. My dad and I built it together. He offered to give me the bike when I graduated from tech school, but with no place to keep the bike and too much ignorant(young) pride to let him just give it to me for free I told him that since I couldn't afford it he could sell it if he wanted. Regret it a bit,but that old hoopty is what steered me towards buell (ya know something that stops and turns instead lol). Him and I still talk about building another ironhead someday.
And cooter absolutely no helmet comms.! Plus loud pipes save marriages! (Note the baffles are taken out of those short shots)
I was a spoiled 17 yr old for sure (didnt realize it at the time). second pic is me and the gf(now the wife) in sturgis.... i had GOOD bad parents lol. of course could've had more fun without my parents with me
Looks like a legit front end. Fats? God rest him....
Those are some serious flashback pics Buelly
that why i have the v rod, for the gf. otherwise i would have sold it. the ex took the blast i put back together. at least my son will ride it.
