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

    Whats the matter? Couldn't afford chrome? Damn Dude, did you have to steal Ray Charles glasses to ride that thing on a sunny day?

    Too funny!! Actually the bike is basically all original including the sheet metal. The history of the bike is, 6 FLH’s 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 70’s 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 it’s capable of going anywhere but is really only ridden when I get the notion. For sure, It’s 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?

    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.

    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.

    rockt,

    You might want to search the galleries over at www.sportster.org . Another good source of Sportster info can be had over at xlforum.net .

    As far as the scrambler thing, Mert Lawwill makes a "street tracker" but it's pricey. http://www.mertlawwill.com/news.htm

    Supertrapp makes 2-2 high pipes, and Storz makes body kits. Add a pair of long shocks, and some knobbies, and there ya go.

    Thanks for the links, AZ.

    Yeah, I guess the Lawwill bike is a good theme to base my idea on. I originally thought of it as strictly a flat-tracker since that's what it's based on, but for dirt roads it would be fine. The Supertrap high pipes look really cool and are regarded highly from a performance perspective, but I'd be worrried about burning myself and/or a passenger and they'd make mounting luggage difficult. Also need to figure out how to get more fuel capacity.

    Can't believe I get to show my HD without hiding my head in a bag! I love my '01 'king, It always seems to have the right gear for the occasion, nice rumble without being too loud and it get my creative juices flowing. I think it's a great complement to the DR...

    Fug the RUB's!! Don't let those credit card bikers keep you off a great steed! It's a great fun ride, there are a lot of cool riders, despite the bad name the poseurs give HD's...go for it!
