May 2012 ROTM Poll - VOTE HERE

Wow, awesome turnout this month. Thanks for all these entries but it's going to make deciding on the winner very difficult. Let's get going!


Hi all ,
some pics of me & my 1978 XLCR. Don't see many of these around here in the U.K. This is my 2nd XLCR, I've always ridden Harleys, from the mid-70's when I had one of the AMF 2 stroke SS125's, through to a Dyna Glide, 2 Fatboys, & an Electra Glide Ultra Classic. I've always loved the XLCR, from seeing pics in a book here in the UK called Super Bikes of the 70's when I was a teenager. That book had things in it such as the Honda CB750, Kawasaki's Z900, Moto Guzzi Le Mans, Laverda Jota & such like, but the book always fell open at the XLCR pages, and I loved it.
This 2nd XLCR was bought by me last Sept., it had been standing a while & hadn't run, it looked quite sorry for itself & needed a bit of TLC. I got it home, & over this Winter I gave it a real good going over, changed all fluids & ignition parts, new brake parts, fuel system parts, fork lowers polished, exhaust re-coated. Paintwork could do with a little attention here & there, but I'll leave that until this riding season is over. I love riding it, and it always draws a crowd when parked up, even if most folk don't know what it is: "That can't be a Harley....... can it??"
Hope you enjoy the pics,


This is my 2011 Streetglide
I call it Black Sabbath, the paint was done by Bad Ass Paint. It has the 103 ci with stage 1, hydraulic clutch, 250 watt J&M amp with 7 1/4 roccker speakers. It's one of the best rides I've ever driven.


My 2001 XL1200S, 18" rear wheel, rearsets and Supertrapp 2:2 XR pipes, Avon Distanzia tires.


My 05 Wide Glide...Well actually a Wide Fat Super Glide
I have the Super Glide tank and console, Fat Bob headlight and pipes, Hawg Halters 4 degree trees, 2" extended forks and Supreme Legends extended controls. I have made several of my own parts, such as the 2-1 exhaust, AC and Derby covers, fork brace, handlebars and all work has been done by myself, with occasional help from friends when an extra set of hands were needed.
Over the winter I had to completely rebuild her due to an unexpected encounter with a deer over Thanksgiving weekend. My son flew in to give me a hand, was great wrenching with him again.

Here are a few pics, you can see more on my site:

The bike was in good shape when I bought it, but it needed a little attention in a few areas. I decided to tear the whole thing apart. Itís pretty awesome now. I canít imagine ever selling it.

Thanks for looking!

FXRS Carrera wants to know Dino or Syn?
Man I like mrjbinok ride since its old school and those parts are hard to find. I like the way he took it from stock and tricked it out. Furthermore, it rides for the Patriot Riders which is a great cause! I vote for.........mrjbinok

Wow! Thanks all, I'll sink a beer or two tonight in celebration, and I'll give the XLCR a good thrash around the country lanes at the weekend! Cheers! FBB
