Hello everyone.just introducing myself.i live in TN but i am from TX.i'm 54 and have been here in portland tn now for about 20 years now and i am getting back into riding just so i can give my boston terrier rides cause the police said i couldnt ride my boston on my go kart anymore after 3 years of going 63 mph up and down my road that is 1.2 miles each way.my boston loves it on the bike and i am going all out with this bike.of course,the bike needed some lovin although it only had 24k miles on it when i bought it.fixed a brake light issue i had due to a break in the wiring harness and have put all the parts on from bluecollarbobbers except for the rear fender and tire..i was riding last friday with my boston and low and behold,i had a driveshaft failure.anywho,i disassmbled bike and have new parts on order.i never seen the likes of rust in where the driveshaft goes into the final drive assembly..not going to stop me lol.i will also have to put a starter on it pretty soon.other than that and the 12" ape hangers i ordered for it.it should be back together hopefully by this weekend.

And i wanted to say thanks for all the posts on this forum that allowed me to learn how to work on this bike with relative ease.cheers.....-kenny-

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