    Rebuilt the bike last year and powder coated everything except the tins.
    This winter I am fitting a custom rev counter and GPS tracker.

    Currently sorting out the intake leak on my 84 FX. Once that's done I'm off to Beans to get the tanks lacquered. Then it's the oil lines and other bits on the !980 FLH. Really looking forward to getting her on the lift and having a good check over.

    Also, gathering all the parts for my WLC together to put up for sale on Ebay. They're all over the place in boxes and it's taking a long time!

    had to read that twice, thought you'd had your lad painted black

    i'll be doing nothing apart from the usual tinkering and faffing on.

    just spent an hour trying to get a new dishwasher to work, tried everything, water supply good, drainage good, wiring good.
    just about to lose it and 'phone the shop in a tantrum then shut the door and it started. oh how we laughed

    I know of at least one club member who may consider a 45 project Rod. Not myself though, one's enough!

    I did speak to someone, but it didn't work out so thought I may as well stick it on Ebay. If you do know someone they can send me a pm or pass on my number if you like.
