newbie from Gulf Shores

Post by 72shovelhead on Tue Sep 20, 2011 3:42 pm

Just came across this site and figured it would be a good place to hook up for rides etc, down in South Baldwin county. Currently rebuilding my top end on the 1972 FLH trying to get ready for fall riding.

Welcome to the forum. Keep checking back. Sometimes it's a last minute ride, so be sure to check in on Friday Nights through Sunday mornings for rides posted by us last minute guys.

Dragon, thank you for posting the photos for the members to see. That's pretty much how see will stay looking with the exception of new shocks and a few minor details. I will be having the leather saddlebags refurbished soon and cleaning up the windscreen for cold wet winter day later in the year. Plan to have the bike back on the road next week.Actually I realized she had been sitting since 2004 while I was building the 1985 EVO custom I sold last summer.
Thanks again to everyone for the welcome,looking forward to the chance to ride with members of the group when possible.

Thanks, everyone I am starting tomorrow to put the FLH back together new manley street valves, new K & B performance pistons all machine work completed with jugs punched .60 over, heads rework completed. Also replaced the side covers with vented ones since I replaced the primo belt due to breakage from age/wear.

Thanks guys & gals better invites than V-twin or HD rider forums i have/am own.. plus added bonus of local riders to get to know and ride with looking forward to meeting on a ride sometime soon. I am getting close to having her back together , should be complete with exception of cleaning out the inside of the fuel tanks and resealing them this weekend.
