New Owner

I went to the Harley shop in Hudsonville MI. and am now an expectant owner of a 2013 slim. They even called the factory for a vin. Excited and aprehensive as I have never bought a bike that expensive before. I think that the last new bike I bought was an 86 VT700c. cost $5,000. Also never owned a big bore twin before. But this is going to be the best build I have ever done. No the shop isn't going to put any of the accessories on that I have ordered for this bike. Trust me that put a knot in their panties. I guess they have never had a new customer walk in and pay cash for a bike and accessories and not have a $3000 service dept bill. After all I've got about 45yrs motorcycle expierence behind me why would I let them do it. Oh ya rode in on my naked 83 hotrod wing that I didn't trade in, I think I may have made their heads explode. That was the part that was the most fun.
You can see my hot rod wing here.

First off is the wire spoke wheels, going to 9spoke chrome 16" mags wrapped with Dunlop Raise white letter tires. Then it's time to get rid of the cheesy floor boards and put on pegs and controls. 2" rear drop. 14"x14" windvest. LED lights all round including Kuri LED headlight (bullet style chrome), Rear fender LED edge light. Fatboy chrome fork bib, and consol. Corbin gunslinger seat and short chrome backrest & rack (gotta have some place to strap a 30pk to bring home) with a LED light on the bar, and a Hypercharger air filter system. Other than that not much.

Photos will be posted of the build.
