And the story:
Bought this bike new in August of 04 as a Blue and silver Fatboy. 2 years later i bought a 98" big bore kit with CNC heads and 37g gear drive cams from our site sponsor on here, GMR performance. I put the engine kit together myself and had the bike dynotuned at Hardings Harley in Corning NY to the yield of 99hp and 113tq. This past June i bought a custom paint set from Iron Range Customs and put the set on myself.
The bike has currently 38,000 miles on it and has never been back to the dealership for anything(other than dynotuning). I enjoy doing all my own work and maintenance, and i must be doing something right (knock on wood). The bike has been to the Harley Rendezvous, Am-Jam, Thunder in the Cascades, and Easyriders Rodeo Chillicothe several times.
I plan on getting a set of chrome stock Fatboy rims and some apehangers soon.
I present Gloria Jean
She started out as a Sinister Blue beauty that I bought in 04 from the second owner w/ 19,000 miles on her. After a run in with one of Bambi's cousins I decided to change things up a bit. A friend owns a paint shop and they do some really nice work. I wanted something that I wouldn't be afraid to actually ride since I tend to ride year round. Currently has 72,300 miles on the clock.
I removed the tins, sent them to him and began all of the other cosmetic work during last winter. I'm extremely pleased with the end product.
Other than the basic stage 1 work she's pretty much stock engine wise. I have the detachable rear seat and a back rest or the tour pack for overnighters. So far my longest ride was down to Myrtle Beach last year at about 10 hrs.
I've met some of the good folks on this board and hope to meet more over the course.
She has 28,000 miles on her I have ridden in every state on the east coast but 3.
Eng size: 88

And the story:
My name is Dan and I am a chromeaholic. I would like to introduce you to my baby her name is Nessie, short for Loch Ness Monster. I love my baby I have cared for her and made her mine and there is no other like her. She is now about 99% complete…. Yeah right famous last words…
Anyway about Nessie, I wanted bike that 1. Draws attention, actually she craves it and usually gets a crowd around her in any parking lot. 2. Is Different, which happens to be the compliment I get the most, when people see the candy green paint. 3. Is versatile, I can take all of 10 minutes and remove all the detachables and a seat swap and have a different bike and a different look altogether. 4. Make her my own! I have fully succeeded on all of my missions.
