New to forum. New to harleys. I'm Steve. I'm from central California. I work in the oilfields as an engine/compressor/pump mechanic. I built an xs2 650 bobber 2 years ago. I love my little bike, but the sound wasn't right and it was a constant struggle keeping up with 30 year old parts acting silly (and it wasn't an American bike, and just not a Harley) so I recently bought a 2000 heritage softail on a Kraft tech frame with a rev tech 110" and 5 speed tranny. I like working on engines and have already run in to some problems with this bike, but look forward to modding the look and working on this bike for fun and not out of "need" to keep the darn thing on the road.
