Well lets see, my first bike was a Honda XR75 1976 I think. I was 13 I think. We were fortunate growing up to have access to large amounts of undeveloped land, all built up now, this was in the late 70's. First street bike was a 1978 Yamaha RD400E. It had extensive engine work, expansion chambers, radial heads, etc. It was really fast for a 400. It suprised a lot of 750 and 1000's back then, 1985. So I went through numerous *** crotch rockets over the years. As the performance increased the comfort level decreased. I also only enjoyed them at high rates of speed. So with the help of a friend, long time Harley mechanic and outstanding tattoo artist, I have started to build my own Harley based bike. Its going to be styled after an early 70's FLH.
