n.e.confederate wants to know Dino or Syn?
OK, here's mine. '02 Road King, 95", 9.7:1, ported heads, S&S 510 cams, PCIII, and a few other mods, home built. This winter will see 10.6:1, 585 cams and S&S VFI closed loop fool infection, all done in my basement shop. Custom paint is the result of a crash last summer. Up til then I did all work on this bike myself but had my local hot rod shop patch it back up while I was being patched up. That crash damaged every piece of sheet metal or fiberglass except the rear fender and the right side cover! I found the air brush guy, I designed the paint scheme but had the local body shop repair the dents, scrapes, etc, shoot the color and clear, while another local guy did the airbrushed flames. I put half moon shaker boards on it, Pan tank emblems and round mirrors to give it a "Pan flavor". This bike has over 75,000 miles on it, I ride the wheels off it! What do y'all think??

The Bike:
2000 Softail 'Fatboy' with hard bag mounts and rear LED taillight by Cycle Visions.
95" Kit, J&E Forged Pistons, R&R Stage IV heads, milled to 11:1, Comp-Release buttons, Andrews 60 gear driven Camshafts, Feuling billet cam plate and oil pump, T-P Performance Billet Rocker Boxes, S&S Roller Rockers, Baker Fire Starter Starter with Coarse Starting Gears, 6 speed gearbox, true dual exhaust, Crane lifters and Dyna Ignition...

The Story:
Previous owner gets between a girl and an abusive boyfriend, finding himself on the wrong end of a knife.. The assailant managed to cut the one of the previous owners major arteries, near killing him. Long story a little shorter.. the owner came out okay, but due to blood-loss he lost some of his vision and some of the use of one of his hands / arms.. He continued to ride.. but crashed several times.. His Indy repaired the machine as asked but did so reluctantly, fearing he would one day lose his friend to an accident.
He again crashed, and this time took the advise of his Indy and hung it up.. He brought the title.. The Indy placed an ad on Craigslist, without picture, just a brief description.. and a low price, not wanting to profit due to his friends misfortune.. I called him within an hour of the ad hitting.. and knew this was a bike i'd need to see..
There was damage to the primary cover, clutch basket, pressure plate, saddle bag, floorboard, fender and some other dings and scratches.. There was no negotiating.. it was what it was..
I did the bodywork, sprayed the base and clear.. and repaired the mechanicals.. but heard a noise.. and found the inner cam chain shoe to be broken, and replaced the chains in favor for a gearset, but kept the same grind, added the feuling cam plate, oil pump, TP rocker boxes, roller rockers and lifters.. Most all the parts other than the cam stuff i found used, either on this forum or ebay to keep the costs down..
When i started the wrenching, i was impressed with the attention to detail the and quality of workmanship i found throughout the machine.. and called the Indy and told him so..

I am pretty much new to this site, why not post some picks too. Here is my 2011 Custom Chopper I built myself. What is included…Ultima El Bruto 113" with driveline package, 6 Speed, 2" primary. Krafttech Rigid Frame: 34 Rake, Up Stretch is: 0", Back Bone Stretch 2". 250 Dunlop Rear, 21" Front wheel. I installed baffles in my LAF pipes. I had to cut the ends to install them, hence why I have the tips. Still loud, but you can still ride without earplugs. Comes with Turn signals, Speedo, Indicator lights, Horn, High Beam and Hazards. It took me 2 years to finish. I spent about 2 month’s total time working on her of those 2 years. I have a family and having extra time is hard to come by. When I finally finished the bike, added fuel, rolled her out of the garage and started her; the look on their faces was priceless. Made it all worth it.
