Started out with my best friend buying a buy back in October so naturally I had to as well. Not a huge bike fan but the minimalistic / bobber look has always caught my eye. Went to the local dealer and this thing caught my eye. Better yet it was "used" with 34 miles on it. The price was a steal so figured why not. Its a fun little bike to ride around town.

Harley Davidson forty-eight
1200cc v-twin
5 spd trans
olive gold tank

Of course I couldn't keep it stock....

- Front fender delete
- Black rocker box covers
- Vance & Hines short shot pipes
- Harley drag bar
- Harley spring seat
- Harley black head light bezel
- Kinetic 2.5 tank lift
- Kinetic coil and ignition relocation

Pics are in order from old to current:

I'm not a Harley guy either, but that is very nice.

I was sitting on something similar at Woodstock two weeks ago. Nice bike, looks like a lot of fun.

I'd bet money that was me.

Too bad you aren't doing powder coat anymore.. I'd have a bunch of little projects for you.

I'm hoping when my wife gets a new bike, she goes with one of these. She likes them and we have found a few she was really diggin' last season.
