CKC... That is a sweet Dyna. You have it set-up and looking well. Exactly how I would do it. Bet the Thunderheader delivers.

Too funny!! Actually the bike is basically all original including the sheet metal. The history of the bike is, 6 FLHs with sequential engine numbers were ordered for the Riverside police department thru Skip Fordice HD of Riverside CA. in 1969. for the purpose of being used for their drill team. They came with every factory accessory available in 1970 except a side hack. Thru the 70s they were used in every major event and parade including the Rose parade. In 1979, they were auctioned off. I have been the 4th owner for over 14 years. I t has had a full mechanical restoration by myself with the best of everything being used while doing my best to keep an original look. The bike was ridden daily for many years and has been take cross country numerous times. Presently its capable of going anywhere but is really only ridden when I get the notion. For sure, Its one of those things I plan on dying with.

Well, starting this thread a long time ago, an image for '06 from yesterday's ride near Kenosha Pass and South Park in central Colorado. A spur of the Mosquito Range with Bald Mtn. (13,684ft.) on the left and Mt. Guyot (13,370ft.) on the right. Summer cabins of Michigan Hill in the distance. Decent weather for a January ride at 9500ft. eh?

Is this a common thing with Harleys?

All the dirtbike guys are loving their autoclutches. I was thinking they would be a great idea for the V twin customs and regular HDs. The custom guys are always trying to hide stuff so an auto clutch would be perfect.

Rekluse http://www.rekluse.com/store/index.cfm?CID=35 is making an auto clutch for Harley Davidsons. You should be able to ride it like it was your Honda 50.

The auto clutch is pricey but must be great for stop 'n go traffic. I installed HD's kit for reducing the clutch pull (comes stock on '06 models) on my FXST. Makes a huge difference.

Sportster Scrambler

Did Harley ever make a Scrambler version of the Sportster. Anyone ever customize one into a Scrambler? Any pictures?

I know in the old days guys used Sportys off-road and for hill-climbs. I'm thinking of something like the new Triumph Bonneville-based Scrambler,

in Sportster-guise.
