Uberstorm is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Uk rider first ironhead ownership

HI, just jumped on this forum. seems to where all the people in the know are at Rode harleys as well as a pleathora of other bikes and built a lot of show bikes, over the years. Daytona bike week / octoberfest addict for many many years, rode the 66, all across, starting off in chicago in minus 15, and 3 weeks later flip flops through death valley on a fat boy, but never actually owned a harley. Wife says to pick a bike to keep, so ive got myself a 1979 ironhead. Plans im implimenting, fat boy rear, 5 inch rear stretch, remove the layers of hammerite and satin black, full electrical relocation, apes etc, nothing too crazy, for me. , thats me then, so glad im in good company.

A warm welcome from France!


You need to use a 3rd party hosting site, but build pics would be great.

A Sportster is like no other motorcycle..including several other HD models. Congratulations. Take my advice...NEVER sell it no matter what. There's always another way to come up w/ some quick cash.
