Got my new bike. 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Spent 9 hours driving to Detroit to pick up my new bike from Smokes. Seemed like it took forever across 4 states but what a cool bike. Now gotta trailer it back home, probably another 9 to 10 hours tomorrow. I am sure that Jasons gonna be jealous when he sees what I do to it. Really nice deal and he was nice enough to help me get it on the trailer as well. Low loud and fast, just the way it should be. Now just have to make more room in the garage for this one.

Did get to see the skeleton of his bike he wrecked. So sad that he totaled that one. But his new HD is really nice.

Re:Got my new bike. 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Congrats on the new bike. The nice thing is that you already know that whatever work Smokes has done to it, has been done right (or better than right). He is kind of picky perfectionist. (Sorry Jason, but it's true)
I'll be keeping an eye out to see what you do with it. I've always thought that bike just had that badass look to it for some reason.
If you don't use the handlebars let me know, I might be interested in them.

Not sure if I can post a Photobucket link, but i'll try. This is a pic of it from a little while back. don't know what or if anything has been done to it since...this may not work...stupid Photobucket.

Was assuming you bought his bike that got wrecked until I read the last comment. So you bought his '03?

Thanks. It was a quick visit but a nice one. Spent about 18 or 20 hours over the weekend driving to and from DC.

If he sold it with that comfort cruise stiletto seat (that I sold to him) and you don't want it, I may entertain buying it back if the price is right!

Re:Got my new bike. 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
I like the seat a lot. I will let you know if I consider it. I have only had this thing in my driveway for about 14 hours and you guys want parts already. I am selling the old bald rear tire if someone wants it! HA!
