So!! What your saying is not to show up for a ride with ape hangers on my TBS??? Would I be stoned and my bike set on fire?
Haveing been around the motorcycle scene since 1958, beleive me I have seen it all, and I do mean all, choppers, mild to wild..Bobbers, mild to wild!! if you look at all of Harleys dyna's most of them are direct copies of what the custom, chopper folks did back in the 60s and 70s some were cool, some were junk..I personally never did own a chopper in the true sence, but I did build a couple of custom bikes, one for my wife with a hardtail frame with a Harley XA springer front end, she loved it, I rode a custom 71 superglide at the time, well almost it was a 62 panhead with a sporty front end, stock 3 gal tanks with a reversed front fender for the rear..I suppose it is all in the eye of the beholder, some like them, some don't...
I was just kidding about apes on my TBS. :-D But I must say, I have done some custom work to it. took off the after thought Lic. plate lite and put a custom plate holder on there with lights in it, change risers and bars, got different seats for it, all little things to make it my own. I like it, perhaps you will not?? what is it they say, "to each his/her own"
I think a speedmaster with about 8 inch apes on it would be a good improvement in the looks dept. and maybe even in the rideing comfort?? maybe someday I will find out. :???:
so many roads--so little time
