Hey,
been lurking for ages.
Started off as a kid with a model FLH genny.
from there went to 2nd hand book shops to get x rated easy rider, choppers (70s) and super cycle (tits) ...filthy kid!!

At 15 got a Haynes FLH manual. Left school lived a life of peasantry then scored a SHOVEL FLH , ripped it apart and built it the way I wanted, probably never sell it.

I havent been in a bike shop since the 90s ,all the real shops have gone and I dont like dealerships at all, theyre not slightly interested in shovels.
they sell $70 K bikes for chrissakes!

Swap meets rule!
