|After a long time away from bikes,
I bought a new '86 FXRS-sp.
|I had this bike for 15 years.
It went through many changes over the years, but all in keeping with Harley's
original design concept for the Low Rider Sport - fast with great handling.
I might have got a little carried away - the bike wound up with a Ceriani fork,
Koni shocks, EMC BLOWER, custom sheetmetal, racing wheels, etc.
I looked at it one day in 2001 and, after 15 years and hundreds of modifications,
couldn't think of another thing I wanted to do to it - it was finally done. I sold it.
