Tomorrow is a New Year…

But today the last day of 2015 I sold my Harley Shovelhead. As much as I enjoyed owning and riding this bike, it just seemed to be one of those bikes that spent as much time in the shop as it did out on the road. So a hard decision had to be made, and I put it up for sale, and today it went to a new home.

Local MAG Show…

It was our local MAG show today (motorcycle action group) so as the sun was making a rare appearance, I opened the lockup, and pulled out the 75 Harley FLH for a run through the back roads of town and then out into the local countryside, heading for the rugby club where the show was to be held, the old 1200 V-twin thumping away.

This was to be my first trip out on the shovel, and what a strange fun bike it is, loads of torque but not the quickest bike on the road, which is a relief, as the brakes weren’t built for speed, but then I guess neither was I.

2015 already, how did that happen?

This weekend I finally managed to find some time for myself, and so dragged the Harley from the shed, and set too getting it ready for the summer, if we get one of course?

So what did I do? new rear shocks to replace the broken ones that were on the bike, NOS twin seat, vintage tank badges, new tank caps, billet points cover, and I removed the pannier frames for powder coating.

Looking pretty sharp don’t you think?
