Lightbulb How long have you had your Iron Head?

I was just wondering how long some of you have owned your bike. I bought mine used in 83, and have now had it for 23 years. Anybody have theirs longer?

About 8 weeks. 25 years ago I had a 51' Panhead....then didn't have a bike until now so I'm really looking forward to it (as soon as the cold weather breaks)

I bought my 1980 in the late fall of 2004. Then i got rid of my Evo. Ya, i kept the good bike. The real biker's bike, eh. Looks pretty. Shakes. Sound soooo good. Eat your hearts out the rest of you [heh heh].
