This is THE BEST Sportster Resource!

Take a minute and please put at least your state/country in the LOCATION FIELD of your profile so we can better help you when you need it - Your climate, temps & altitude can make a difference to suggested fixes... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts so you need to use the LOCATION FIELD)...

CLICK HERE - then scroll down to 'Additional Information' and look for the field labeled 'LOCATION' - put your information in there - It will then show on each post you make... Look for this:


Post a PICTURE of your ride... Host the image on a photo website (but not photobucket.com), get the link with the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included & paste that directly into your posting (If you don't have the "[IMG][/IMG] tags" included, then use the Image Insert icon along with the web address of the image)...

There are various sections to the XLForum - You can pick a section that is related to your problem/info, open that section and read the sticky threads on the first page - Then post your comment in an existing thread or create a new one to get information for your specific question... For new threads, make the title specific to your problem or info...

This is the index of sections: http://xlforum.net/forums/index.php
Be sure to read some/many of the FAQ/HowTo threads here:
http://xlforum.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16

The Sportsterpedia has a lot of technical info to review:

Thanks everyone, my garage may look large but I can assure you its deceiving in the photos, once the boat comes home I will be out of space. Never though I would go this far with my 1st bike but it sure is cool to build something unique.

Here are your pics.

You needed to copy the embed code from ImgBB, and paste that into your post.

Thanks for the photo repost, could you explain what you did? Did I just use the wrong code from ImageBB?

Which code did you use? I just copied the 'BBCode - Full Image' embed code.
