Why does this keep popping up as new?

Check the date.

Because people keep on voting on it.

It's the same with any poll: anyone voting in the poll will bring the thread to the top of the list, just as if they had posted to the thread.

I'm older than dirt in a couple weeks, I'd need to change my poll ranking.

By mu calculations the average age of Ironhead owners will drop by about 10 years in 5 years.

My plans are to get these kids locally instant rep by selling em my ironheads. Won't be cheap though.

They invented words like bobber and battle scooter. I am quite happy to oblige them. At a price.

Still older than dirt. Getting uglier. But she loves me.

Edit: None of this happens till I build,repair, and sell the BMW, Kawi Concours, XS 650 hardtail.

Gotta get rid of the flotsam before the jetsam.

The only real market for Ironheads is in the 60+ age group.

Kids look at Ironheads in the same way they do bowling balls.

If they want a bobber it has to have an Evo engine and heated handlebars. HP doesn't matter but it has to be LOUD. Brakes are optional. (They aren't really sure what they are for)
