Thought I would introduce myself.. I am new to Harleys I have been riding on and off for the past 45 years but have never owned a Harley. I own a stable full of old Japanese Vintage stuff from the early to mid 70's which is what I rode mostly when I was young with a few Triumph's and BSA's thrown in. I purchased a 2010 FXD with 7000 miles that needs some love. I have already begun the process of bringing her back to NICE. I will post pic' soon. I am looking forward to learning from this site and riding my new to me Harley!

I know what you are saying, some people are really rough on equipment.
You will have it fixed back up in no time :)

Nice going! That bike deserves better. And after you've brought her back, she'll repay you over and over.

Welcome to the forum! There's a tremendous amount of knowledge here.

I've saved many bikes, ATV's from an early demise....nothing better than bringing back to life something some A$$hat under appreciated.

Amen on resurrecting older bikes. I snapped up a 1980 Honda CB200. "It doesn't run, just get it out of here" is music to my ears. Clean out the carb, swap the plugs, fresh gas, kick her and go!!! Little elbow grease and you have something nice.
