frankman is an unknown quantity at this point
Default $4000 Winter Purchase Project Twice Dumped Nightster Finished

Purchased in December was dumped on both sides rash on pipes, signals, bar ends, clutch cover, mirrors, chipped up battery cover, both hand and foot controls, left to sit and decay with 5K miles. A lot of hours in cold dark garage and $2000 later, 95
% finished and I have added another sportster to the Heard. I could no longer purchase a Patriot Defender 2 into 1 so I tried a Firebrand 52, What do you think? Before and after pics.
