They're just all good... tough to beat a rigid for lightness of being.
That Pan is beautifully proportioned.
Thanks for sharing, Kirk.

Yup. The Vice Grip MC guys are mainly concerned with building period correct 60's/70's Choppers... But they ride the piss out of 'em. Love riding with these guys when I'm in the area. Great dudes.

I love the little round air cleaner, as compared to the stock "football." Where do you run the breathers though? Most small round cleaners I've seen, people run the breathers into a little pod filter that hangs underneath. Your look is much cleaner.

Gotta chime in

Ok, Ok, I'm finally out of the closet now---yep I love BMWs, KTMs and now I officially tell the world- I like my HD!

Its a great around town bike, but on a recent local trip (1k in 3 days) I can tell it needs a few improvements-
- Lower bars, closer together
- A seat that places the rider a bit more forward leaning- too much pressure on tailbone as it sets
Not sure about the powdercoated air cleaner cover- kinda visually sets the engine back- may go back to a chrome SS A/C Cover- ideas?

In other words, some 883 bars and built up seat?


Know the old joke about "Why are all Harley parts chromed? So you can find them at the side of the road. Note in pic above: battery cover not found....
Zip ties from now on!
