Late again, if I keep this up Springer is gonna cut my pay in

We have a really great turnout this month, but now we've got a problem that I've not experienced yet...too many entries. There is a limit on Poll Questions of 10 entries, so my apologies to ghostrider69 and rickss69. These are "re-posts", so I'll hold them for next month.

Here we go...


My 2004 Fatboy


There's no ride like a Glide.


What The Hell ..


I would like to submit my '48 Indian Chief. I just got it back last week from paint. I have had the bike a couple of years and got it from a 78 yr old who had inherited it from his brother. It had been in the same family since the mid sixties. When he inherited the bike it was all together but quite a mess. But the bike was mostly original and still had the correct matching engine for the frame. His son-in-law, who is an aircraft mechanic, completely stripped the bike and rebuilt it from the ground up. Mechanically, it was quite sound when I got it. Asthetically it was kinda ugly. I set out to take the old Chief to the next level. Black Billy Bikes in Mesa, AZ did the paint.and bodywork. I added the correct (original 1948) bars and a different (solo) seat. I also purchased the fender tips and scripts for the tank from Starklite in CA which were missing when I got it. It also now has an electronic ignition module inside the original distributor. I just got it back last friday with the fresh paint and rode it home. Here are some pictures:
