84 Fxrt

Changed this one for at 2000 FXDX, still feels that the FXR was the best handling bike.

Cainpole, The front end is made by GCB Ceriani (Italy) and I think it is the same as marketed by Storz in The USA. I'll post more pics as soon as I get chance. Cheers Steve.

I really love that look. Real beefy up front with that fat tire and inverted forks. I'm using your photo for my computer's desktop wallpaper.

I'm noticing many have done away with the factory rear fender support struts and moved the shock mounting position to that forward hole on the frame. I plan on doing this next winter also. I lowered the rear a fair amount by going with 11 1/2" Sportster Hugger shocks but have a lot of space left over between the wheel and fender for shock bottoming. Moving the mount forward will provide a more solid flat-foot for me.

I also like the looks of the solid wheels shown in a few of the photos here. I've heard all the arguments of wind and such, but I'm thinking an obese rider, or passenger, would provide much more sail than solid wheels, and they are affecting is even more at their higher center of gravity.

The Dane-
Those are some great FXR photos on your website. Lots of hotties too!

Thanx to Ka-Ka for the compliments. Being a Brit I like the look of Exile Cycles and am going slightly that way even tho' I dont have a hardtail. I just spent 12 years riding a hardtail chopper and now appreciate the comfort. Next comes the 200 rear
