Default Axe's Harley History K/XL, FL, & Choppers vids

Howdy, All!

Here's Part 1 of the series of my Harley ownership experience about K/Sportsters. Bad luck for guys that bought my dad's bikes, customization I did on his and mine and just the fun I've had on them so far!

Part 2 will be the FLH experience of constant engine grenades, repairs, upgrades, and adventures.

Then I'll post a 2 part series on the choppers I build while I owned Y Chrome Customs. 10 ground up custom builds total with 5 in each video.

Enjoy, and feel free to post any questions or comments!

Also, the youtube icon didn't seem to work right. clicking the pic below seems like it takes me to the youtube vid, but just in case, here's the youtube link itself.

Here's part 2 on the shovelhead FLH. i've tried to process out the echo as best the computer will do. Unfortunately didn't get a lot of pics with this bike, and no bikini model pics. The chopper ones will make up for it, promise!

Also why I try to do most work myself as I can screw it up cheaper than some mechanics I have paid can!

i hear that. so aggravating that i could've done it myself and had it correct. it's frustrating enough having to deal with shops, and there are some really good ones, but when you have monkeys banging on the bike with hammers, can be infuriating!

Here's part 1 of the chopper builds, much more pics, including the bikini model shots.
