This thread is dedicated to all those who want to build a custom ride but dont have the cash to hire some custom shop and a ton of cash laying around. This whole rebuild was done with two hammers a tig welder and 100 dollars worth of sheet metal thats about it. This was my 1989 FXRS Lowrider pre crash. I loved this bike and just couldn't let it die. I was going around a sharp bend in the road on the brakes and I ran over a sewer cap with some sand on it. The front wheel let loose like it was on ice and I went down at about 40 mph. The forward controls put my leg in a bad spot and my left leg went under the bike and the upper shock bolt shattered my lower left leg. The plate screws and bolts it took to put it back together is a whole other thread with of info. So here I am over 5 months on crutches one month on a cane and one month walking with a severe limp I still ain't walking right but getting better. About a month ago I decided I wanted to resurrect the wreckage of my beloved hog.
