Biker? in the sence of the word, No. Enthusiast? Yes.

My 76 FX-FL Custom

A few build pics (took over a year)

No,
I'm not a biker. I do still own an old superglide, but I haven't ridden it since Md. re-instituted the helmet law. I may ride again some day if the so called "free state" gives it's citizens freedom of choice.

Thanks for the compliments.

I dont remember the parts I used. I was trying to keep with the "arched" theme. That's why I kept the ridges from the tank extensions in-tact. The side mout tail was one of the first out still with the arch theme. I think the mirrors were the cheapest part actually. I had a bazillion catalogs I ordered from (pre-internet boom).

The bike was originally a 76 FX (fugly) that was customized with mid-50's FL parts. It had the 5 gal tanks w/built-in petcock, dash with border trim. The front FL fender was narrowed to accomodate the 19" rim.

I wanted something that looked old and new at the same time.
