2006 softail
I decided get a motor cycle after selling my last one almost 11 years ago and wanted to try my hand at building a custom Harley.

ghostrider69 (bike #1)

Been looking at past months and this month and I have to say that there are many clean rides here.
Year: 2011
Model: FLSTN
Engine: Stock 96"
Trans: 6speed
Exhaust: Samson 39" Cholo Longtails
Seat: Lepera Bare Bones
Accessories: None really
SoftBrake License Plate relocation kit
FLSTS Flying Wheel Derby and points covers.
A little extra chrome here and there and lots more still in the boxes waiting to be put on.

ghostrider69 (bike #2)

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.

A tough one to say the least, alot of real nice rides but Conolan got my vote again.
We never even said a word,
We just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled...
And we rolled...... clean out of sight
