OK this is it, event #9 on the way to selecting the V-Twin Forums Ride Of The Year for 2017.

This even is the Run Off of the scooters that placed 2nd during the 8 previous events. The winner will move on to the ROTY event, the rest get to step off.

So you've seen them all before, now it's time to choose one to move forward, lets get to voting.

Them what has broken photo links will need to pm new working links to me. Or go with the photos I provided.



lets start this off right.

1990 FXRP-F
stock motor
stock tranny
pretty much stock everything

I changed the bars and risers, low windshield, and put a 2 into 1 on it. Never had a rp before and this was the second one i bought in one week.



1972 Sportster
Year 1972
Model Sportster
Motor 1000cc
Transmission 4 Spd
Pipes Khrome Werks
Seat Unknown Solo
Wheels stock rims powder coated black with stainless steel spokes and Dunlop tires

i bought this as a winter project and told the wife would fix it up and sell and now she knows I'm not selling��. The bike was not running when I picked it up and it had 24320 miles on it. Just finished this project, has been a 2 year project. Had the frame black powder coated along with everything that was chrome is now powder coated black. Sent out the cam case and primary case powder coated flat wrinkle black. Used the stock handlebars. Picked up the battery today and looking forward to hearing it run this weekend. Always a great feeling when you complete a project and look back at it.



Well ...I'll throw my helmet in the ring.
Eng size:88ci Twin Cam W/Big Sucker AC and Power Commander V
Transmission:5 sp
Pipes:Rinehart Slip-on's
Seat:Mustang Vintage Wide Solo w/ removable backrest
Bags: Boss Bags
HD Quick Release Windshield
And the story goes something like this: Back in the summer of 2005, after not riding for about 30 years, I called my wife one afternoon from work. I asked her if she could get off from work early. She wanted to know what was going on. So I said, "Well, I was thinking about stopping by the Harley dealership." We had been talking about bikes and how both she and I used to ride many years ago. So she said, "Why do I have to leave work early? We can go by tomorrow( Saturday) to look at bikes." I answered, Well you had better be there at 4 o'clock." And then I just hung up the phone.
Well she was there by 4 o'clock and as the say the rest is history. I asked her which one she liked and she said " I love that Pearl White Sportster over there." I said," Ok, that is a nice looking one." We walked around a little and she asked me which one I liked. Blue being my favorite color I walked over to the Low Rider and said, "Well this one sure is nice." Then she said, "Wouldn't it be nice to have our own bikes and go riding on the weekends." I answered, " Yep, sure would." I motioned to one of the salesmen and said as I pulled out my check book, "We will take this blue one and the Sporty over there." For the first time my wife was speechless.
The next day we picked up both her Sporty XL1200 Custom and my Low Rider.



OK , let the good luck roll!

My 1997 FLHPi , ex-Police Roadking.

Bought on Ebay a few years back. Didn't look so good at the time. Motor is basically stock 80 cu.in. Evo , except for;

Andrews EV-27 cam
V&H Big Shot Tru-Duals w/fishtails
Dyno-jetted Keihin CV-40 replacing the stock M-M FI
Dyna 2000i ignition
HD Badlander solo seat (have P-pad)
braided brake lines
fresh sneakers , black powder-coated wheels and floating rotors are waiting to be installed

I did some remodeling to add docking brackets so I could use Tour-Pak , rack , passenger backrest , whatever.



Here's mine then ......

Year, 2017 just finished last night !
Model, Custom Bobber
Engine Size, 93" S&S P-series Panhead with Morris magneto ignition.
Transmission, 6-speed Trikshift & 2" BDL belt drive.
Pipes, One-off OJZ pipes with PipeWerx end cans.
Seat, Rich Phillips
Wheels, Rear - 18" 240, Front - 21" spool wheel

Bought the first bit ten years ago after seeing a picture one of my friends showed me of a Youngs Choppers bobber. Engine is a S&S P-series 93" Panhead powder coated & rebuilt by Accurate Engineering. Frame is by Fenland Choppers over here in the UK as is the oil tank/battery box. Fuel tank & under-seat cover are one-offs as is the rear mudguard. Paint is by Joeby Airbrush Art, again here in the UK. Front & rear calipers & switchgear is by Performance Machine. Front disc took some making, a friend to draw it on CAD, a local firm to laser cut it out, 410 stainless steel from the good old USA, heat treated by a local firm & surface ground by an aerospace engineering firm who's boss is into bikes !!




Year: 1993

Model: FXRT

Eng size: 80 CID

Transmission(5sp, 6sp etc): 5

Pipes: White Brothers E-Pipe 2-1

Seat: Mustang Wide Touring

Wheels: Stock Moco

And the story: Bought it in '04 in South Carolina. Brought it home to Oklahoma. Crashed it in '06. Part of the rebuild was changing it from black to white.

It has what some call Stage 2 engine mods- EV-27 cam, WB 2-1 pipes, modded CV, and Wiseco 10:1 pistons. I put an S&S carb on it but went back to the CV.

I've added fog/driving lights, LED headlight, rear LED stop/signal light strip (to augment, not replace, stock lights), Clearview windshield, my brother's FL crashguard, and a butt-ugly home-made forward brake pedal that works great for me.

edit--- I forgot, it also has a SE fork brace and a SEAC.




There it is, six scooters. 1 moves on, and 5 step off. This time around, you get 25 days to sell them votes. So choose wisely and don't spend em cheap.

Which one will it be?

I have voted for the white bike with the funky faring. Don’t see many of those.
Rare as hen’s teeth it seems.

I was paid double what I asked.

So you charged two of us double?

Not seeing double at the time.

Congrats Cat.
Good luck moving on.
