where are all the older bikes????? bet the stories are awsome
A lot of them got butchered over the years, others are in museums and private collections, E bay has some nice ones but I often wonder how real some of them are?
I see some nice old bikes on display in the local swap meets and shows, but not on the road any more. My nephews are getting a pan head and a shovel for their graduations. I am guessing they will be riding them. The same brother-in-law was the person who started me off by letting me sit on his bike when I was 12, and bought me the Harly shirts for christmas. It worked.
If by older bikes, you mean something like the '94 FXR you have, I also wonder.
Harley sold Evo's faster than they could build them for 15 yrs. It seems like a couple of years after the Twinky came out, the Evo's disappeared. I ride my '92 regularly, and seldom see another "old" bike. I think too many have been put in a corner and forgotten.
I know mine isn't as old as the ones you are all talking about but, I was riding my '85 FXEF daily to work until I got my RK. So I ride the FXEF on the weekends to prevent the gas going bad and clogging the carb. I like this bike not only because it belonged to my dad but, it has a lot of chrome with scroll work on it. You don't see that too much anymore.
At the bike shows...winning all the trophy's. :s
I got tired of fighting all the leaks, hiccups, etc...time to enjoy a new scoot for awhile.
That there were funny!:tounge
