    I know a lot of you don't care for the HD bikes....and that's fine, this is my first Harley and Harley build and I just wanted to share it. I got the bike at a good price and it just had trans rebuilt and engine rebuilt, punched over bigger cam new Big S&S carb.......now it isn't a rocket by no means, but its fun, tons of torque to play around with. First pic is what it looked like after I got it home....rode it for the summer like that then did the MADMANN touch and this what I came up with.....:headbang:

    Yeah, nothing like a purple Harley with flames.....:puke:

    It looks much better, I agree. I can see you on that thing!!

    I can hear you now.... sitting at a stop light hitting the 2000 RPM red line, light turns green and you nail it through the first 3 gears and BAM!!!...next thing you know, you're doing 25 MPH!!!! I can see that smart a$$ smile on you're face all the way from here!!

    As long as you like it and enjoy riding it is all that matters!!

    Looks great bro..I dig what you did to it all around..Is that an EVO motor?

    The V twin is a different animal for sure. I am glad I have my Road King to ride and then I can throw a leg over my ZL1 and smile too...

    I'm pretty sure I replied to this but I guess someone decided to delete my post.
    Edit: nevermind, I replied elsewhere. I guess 2-4 hrs of sleep per night is catching up with me...

    Hmmm . . . some poor schmuck comes on here to sell a ZL and he gets nit-picked, low-balled, and ridiculed relentlessly, but NO Harley jokes(?):dontknow:

    :hello: From a rattle can, sponge, brush or did to roll it on. :laughing7: When we was kids in H S we got drunk one night & painted my friends 66 Chevelle SS with oil base black paint with rollers. At about 100 ft & 90 mph it looked good. :laughing7: We did it in the Dairy Queen parking lot with about 30 spectators. It seems to me that I had over 400 posts deleted. I think it was done for saving space on the Server.
