Post A Picture Of Yourself!

Recommended Posts

That motor sounds like real trouble even though you got it to a stage where it seemed right.It can always be a worry when you raise the CI's in a motor and if it isn't done right using strong parts by someone that knows exactly what theyre doing then you're in for problems.I'm sure I've heard of Nostalgia Cycle before?

A mate of mine had a 100 ci shovel too but through regular troubles upgraded to a later model EVO,he's had it for almost 10 years now with little to no trouble and he tours a few times a year.The bloke that bought his old shovel took it on a run with a few others last year but she broke down.

Another friend runs a '72 FLH which has been chopped with the motor being "warm to hot" and it's still going strong.

I have many stories to tell about the motor and Nostalgia especially. I was able to expose their dirty deeds in the old Iron Horse magazine and I'm sure Nostalgia wasn't too happy about it. But everything I said was true and I had many others to back me up. We had a half hearted attempt at a class action lawsuit but it pretty much fizzled out. The crooks got away scott free and they eventually sold all the tooling to someone else. I have no idea if it ever panned out or if the Nostalgia curse followed them too. My Shovelhead was also a lot of grief. I was kinda glad to get rid of it. I'll give the Super Vee one thing, it was very smoothe because of the 90* cylinders but the Shovel was a vibrating whore. I could never keep a horn attached to it. :)

Here's a Super Vee drag bike just to get a taste of the motor sound.

Yeah,the rubber mounting on the later models was a godsend.

Wonderful shoes!

I've always had at least one pair of checkered Vans slip-ons in my closet since the 1970s. Most comfortable shoe ever.

Good evening......

I thought I would join this group here, since I see it almost every day in my Flickr Refferrers.

I can't wait to go through it a bit and check it all out.

Me (left) and a co-worker awaiting the arrival of President Obama for the Worcester Vocational High School graduation. The red brick building on the right side of this photo is St Vincent Hospital. The DCU Center (location of the actual speech and graduation) is over my right shoulder..(left side of the photo)
