ghostrider69 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Year: 2009
Model: Dyna StreetBob
Eng size: 96"
Transmission: 6speed
Pipes: V&H Big Radius
Seat: Stock
Wheels: Rear is stock and front is from a WideGlide.
Accessories: Chrome chrome chrome
And the story: I bought this bike and thought I was going to like it but quickly realized it wasn't what I wanted so slowly transformed it into something a little more presentable. I modded a Milwaukee Iron rear fender to fit between the fender struts. Sprayed it with metallic silver and metallic red scallops pinstriped in black. Installed a set of WideGlide style 3 degree trees and a set of Wild1 16" Chubby apes with chrome controls and braided cables. I installed a WideGlide 21x2.15 front wheel and turned a set of spacers for it. The forwards on a Dyna are a little more of a reach than a Softail so I fabbed up a set of kick back plates for the forwards and cut down the brake rod which brought the controls back 1 3/4". I replaced all of the covers I could easily replace with chrome covers. Illuminating the way is a Cobra ll headlight.

I guess everyone thinks their bike is the "Real One". You just gotta ride what turns you on. It's different for everyone.

I think you glad you understood I was joking about my own attitude. That's what makes horse races, they say. I don't put down anybody's ride. I don't care how perfect and complete a builder may think his bike is, if he sells it to my kind of people they will have to change it up a bit ( even if they have to change it back later)
.The technology has advanced so fast it seems, to avoid being left behind as an old ignoramous, I actuallly have to make an effort to explore the new things I need to know and understand . Worse than just inertia, I sometimes think I am spring loaded against NEW. The longer our new friends ride the more they will come to understand the difference between a bike they built (at least substantially built) and one they purchased. Not a put down at all just an invitation to broaden their enjoyment, like the one I was given over 55 years ago.
