Bikes

This is my bike. I waited 20 years for Harley (Eric) to build this bike. I haven’t had so much fun since I almost had a ’77 XLCR, but that’s another story! Power and handling in an American motorcycle. Bobbed the mirrors, fender, turn signals, and license bracket, and installed BCC lowering kit, plus Drag bars, Super Trapp, BCC ported heads and carb tweak! Go man, go!

 

Can you believe I chopped 8″ off the front end of this classic? Added gas and oil tank mounts, reworked the oil tank to fit, mounted seat and p-pad, saddle bag brackets, fixed broken aluminum front hub and lower leg, chain tensioner system, foot pegs and controls. Al was very happy!

 

This is Rick’s cruiser. He had two complaints about the bike; it was too quiet and Brand X backrest mounts were too #$%^ expensive! We took the stock seat off and installed a BCC Hitch mount on the rear pad. Hidden from view when not in use just pop it in and your passenger is happy on those long hauls!
As far as the exhaust goes, I can’t believe they crammed all that muffler under that motorcycle! The original muffer is actually between the “exhaust pipes” behind the motor. We removed the stock exhaust, took out 46 lbs of muffler, and fabricated new pipes to connect the headers to the “real” exhaust mufflers. It really isn’t a 2-1 its a 2-2 like the old FLH.

 

If you ever get a chance, make the Blessing of the Bikes in Baldwin Michigan usually one week after Mother’s Day. It the closest thing to a “Bike Week” Michigan has to offer. Depending on Michigan weather!, it’s a great ride and a chance to get out on the road. Growing in popularity every year, it draws thousands of riders to the small town of Baldwin.
