New Member from Prattville

Post by Guest on Thu Jul 01, 2010 9:47 pm

Hello from Prattville. I have a 1980 FXE. Actually it is the boy's bike but he left it here last winter because he lives in Missouri and he figured I could get more riding here than he could there. I really think he left it because he knows it couldn't sit under the carport with out me working on it. I put him in a new clutch and steels, aluminum releasing disk, new primary chain and comp sprocket, HB-125 hydraulic primary chain tensioner, LBV drive chain tensioner, new starter solenoid and boot, SS oil lines, CV carb and VOES, Twin Tech single fire electronic ignition, and figured out his irritating rattle. When he came home this past May for a few weeks, he said the difference in the bike before and after my work was like night and day. He paid for most of the stuff, but the clutch and primary parts were my birthday present to him. Never worked on a Harley before, much less a Shovelhead but the guys over at Shovelhead USA forum helped me through all the work. Anyway, he bought a 2010 Street Slide while he was here in May and my Father's Day present was that the bike was mine until I buy my own. Told him that I don't need to buy one now, already got one. And no, you guys can't leave your bikes under my carport like he did.
Here's some pictures.



And the boy's new bike



Old and new

Thanks and Yeah, I enjoy working on them too. If you own a Shovel and ain't rich, you will learn to wrench.

Well hell (can I say hell here?) now I can see that some of you guys are going to be like those old hard asses at Shovelhead forum. That's alright though, I been getting my own beer and whiskey for 40 years now (started young). I'll even get you one while I'm up.

Yep, Hawg's forum and Shovelhead forum. Both great forums. You almost have to use bad language there to fit in. I can communicate either way. I'm bilingual that way.

Sure did. Matter of fact, I just looked and it was your post that I saw.

We have put together a new forum for local riders in Southern Alabama. I know there are a few rider's in here that live in the area. The sole purpose of this forum is for rider's to meet local's in thier own neck of the wood's. We will be having a BIKE SHOW on 7/31/2010 in Gulf Shores, Al. All proceed's will benifit the Animal Rescue and Animal Oil Clean-up on the Gulf Coast. Come on over and check us out.

Thanks,

Hayweed

That was it. I was glad Hawg let me put that on there. I know there are a couple of guys on his forum that live in mobile. I haven't heard from them but have talked to two others that I didn't even know was in this area.

Go into your profile. When you set it up there is a section that will ask you a 1000 questions. Near the bottom it will say " always atach signiture ". Check yes.

Okay, one more stupid question. How do you change the color on your signature. Hard to believe I spend most of my working day on a computer.

"color=green" at the beginning and then "/color" at the end.

Replace the " with [ and ] and put whatever color you want in there.

like so
