Hey great to be a member of the journal I currently own and ride a 1968 xlch ironhead sportster I wanted this bike for many years and knew the way I wanted it to look. I have some mechanical skills developed with small engines mostly and my own vehicles. I learned to weld in high school 25 years ago but have not used the skill since. I love old bikes personally and prefer them over the more modern bikes sportsters mainly are my favorite. I am currently gathering parts for a new project that I intend to do on my own with my son I am devoting my free time to this and developing the skill to accomplish this task. I am a veteren of the gulf war I served with 2 nd marine division as a navy corpsmen and have worked in the medical field for 24 years it pays the bills. Mechanically I have taken courses on small engine repair and the shade tree method I own a lot of hanes manuels for the future I am connecting with people that can help me in the areas I am deficient mechanically I am practicing my welding and metal work along with body work and painting. It took 2 years to put the last bike together and I am still chasing bugs with help from good people again I am glad to be apart of this community and look forward to socializing with other like minded people.
