New to this forum

I just want to introduce myself, I am a motorcycle enthusiast I pretty much love them all. Lol. I used to only ride rockets, I used to own a shop specifically catering to that. One day a friend of mine had me change tires on his 01 fat boy, he said ride it let me know what you think, me i said I have to because I need to scrub in your tires. Long story short I put about 200 miles on his bike. Lol. Next day I bought a 2001 night train rode it for two months and decided to completely change it, customize it I guess. I did this it looked awesome but my 88 ci lacked power, for me anyway so I sold it and decided I'm gonna build a bike. I built a little rigid used bits and pieces of crotch rockets I had laying around. Then I had to make it powerful so I bought a 1997 evo blown up, took it apart couldn't find a problem with it, at this time I went to a local Chopper shop (Broadway Choppers, Schenectady NY) Lee is the owner told him what I was looking to do and I needed more power. He did the heads, 10 over bore, Andrews cam, forged flywheels, Jim's bearings. It was awesome. So me being me I sold it, for a 06 street bob which lee also built. 106 ci, screaming eagle flies, heads done, auto tune ignition, v&h 2 into 1,pro clutch, Andrews special. Ground cams, and tons more. So now I have introduced myself I have some upgrades I'm doing this winter,switchback wheels and brake upgrade. Btw fab Kevin makes some serious brake adaptors. So any info on that stuff is appreciated. Here are a few pics of my bikes. Anyway that me and I'm happy to be a part of this community. Thanks DanImageUploadedByMO Free1354644120.214196.jpgImageUploadedByMO Free1354644134.506956.jpg
