Marylou, it's so great to have you posting new info on your bike again! Welcome back! I like the looks of those rearsets. You've done a great job with your bike so far and it shows you have an awesome vision of what you want your Sporty to be. That vision is unlike anyone else's I've seen on this forum, but I like it...A LOT! Keep up the good work!

Ciao Marylou

ottimo lavoro e bella moto
avevo visto in giro sulla rete la tua moto, ma non avrei mai pensato che fossi italiana
non scrivi in nessun forum HD italiano?
da noi abbiamo poca cultura di harley in chiave sportiva, ed è un vero peccato....

ciauuu

Thumbs up Viva d'Italia!

I loved the roads and the hill towns of Tuscany!
My wife and I were in Italy for a month last year.
She has family in Abruzzo. From the family farm it is possible to see the Grand Sasso on one side and the Adriatic on the other.
We spent a week in Rome. That was like living in a Fellini film!
I'd like to return to Italia some day.

ps-- Great looking bike. Now go burn up the Autostrada!

Salut!

Marylou, that color scheme you've got going is fantastic! And the chunky inverted forks, spoiler and match it perfectly. The rearsets are will just make it that much more of a killer bike.

What 2-in-1 are you going for? A compact V&H competition pipe? Or a long upswept type?

Once everything is installed, it'd be great to see some action shots through the Tuscan twisties!

Good luck with it.

I like the bike, the inventive paint scheme, the beautiful rider, and the interesting tail piece that allows you not to cut up the frame. Nice bike all around.
