The Chrome Bike Rises Again

This is the same chrome frame that Dick Allen and Joe Hurst built many different ways. It might have had more motor swaps than any bike out there. 
Joe aboard it's debut at the Kern River Run.

When I get some better shots I'll post them.

Keeping the Sport in Sportsters

Mark Bourassa sends me (and others), old photos from time to time. These might have been on the blog ZZ Chop. I like them because they show how it used to be done. Now days everybody thinks you have to hard tail every Sportster out there.
It's cool to see the Spirit of the Sportster being retained and not just trying to be a big twin.

This one cheats a little by using the old trick of FLH struts and shocks to lower the rear.

Before any of you get bent.... yes there are some nice hard tailed XL's out there.
