New to the group

Hi all,
Obviously I'm new to this group but I've been riding for over 33 years and have had many makes and models of motorcycles. I picked up, as in free, a basket case 02 Volusia and am now piecing it together. Bought some parts off eBay and repairing others. I will try to post pictures of the progress later but unfortunately I have already finished the body work and paint so you won't get to see just how bad this pile of @#$ was. Not that the Volusia is bad but this specimen was . Obviously I like a challenge.
I will go through all of the "issues" it had when I picked it up later.

Happy safe riding (with some fun) to all.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
