hah yeah i know that feeling. I've got an xs650 sitting in my friends garage in a million parts right now too. I've got everything I need to build the bike, just need to actually build the bike. I'll have to go check out that swap though, thanks!

Currently holding it down in Kelowna BC and in Drayton Valley AB. just finishing up first build. 79 xs chop. will be more permanent in the alberta scene sooner than later. Excited to see what other crews are doing. I think a revamp on the canadian chopper (or just motorcycle) scene is a must.

Calgary is where i used to live and plan to go back in the spring. livin in southern sask makin some grubby oil money at the moment...HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lots of cool shit to do in the calgary area as far as the motorcycle scene goes. check out bike nights in Airdrie on wednesday nights at the A&W during the warm months. Also at Melrose downtown Yale puts on a wings night on wednesdays. Thursday nights there is a bike night at the A&W on 16ave put on by the vintage cycle group. Always a swap meet in Red Deer in spring and fall put on by the vintage group there. Lots of good deals there usually. and the milarville swap too is good, small but growing.

I wish i had some boys out this way to build and bullshit and ride with. South Sask has absolutely no motorcycle scene besides the dumb rich pricks ridin around on there super duper Saxon Choppers and $40,000 CVO chrome barges. NO THANKS. Good for you you have an oil money trophy................High Five

Hey, I'm in Edmonton. (Grew up in Fort Sask. too)

Broke as shit right now (25, just bought a house, looking at changing careers) but I right an '09 Nightster I built my own pipes for at the moment, got a couple old Shadows ('83 750, and '84 500) I need to fix-up and sell so I can pick up a fun project.

P.S. if anyone wants to grab a beer sometime PM me. Always nice to find someone new who has knowledge you don't have, or who could use some that you do have. I don't check the web too often though, so I might not reply right away.

Hey man,

I knew that clown in the red shirt looked familiar.. haha j.k, that's Brandon AKA "Manitoba" I used to work with at Dow Chemical. I remember him telling me about his buddy that picked up a Nightster.
We'll have to all hook-up for a ride when the snow melts.

I have a Sportster 48 that has a longgg list of things to get done to it before ride season.

I installed a set of SpeedMerchant Fork Adjusters that my brother gave me for Christmas... It's still the middle of winter so it'll be a while before I get to test them out. From everything I've read they're supposed to be great though.

They were a PITA to install though... Never realized the stock forks have almost 4" of preload on them from factory. It was impossible to push the adjuster, spacer, and spring down by hand. I had to use a little ingenuity... erghh redneck engineering.

Haha hey! Yeah, that doucher's Brandon (better known as Pilky in our circles) I remember hearing about you too, I wanted to trade front end/wheels because I prefer the old dual 16's look. :P Yeah, we need to all get out for a ride sometime in the spring! Maybe a beer before that.

I'm jealous of you guys. No work getting done on my bike right now, I'm getting the garage up to snuff at the moment (tearing everything out, re-wiring, insulating, building benches, etc.) and working on my buddy's bike. When riding weather finally rolls around we should all pick a destination to go have a beer.

Well the location we wanted is a high school and the school cop wants to be involved with the city cop bikes. And with the blue law we have to deal with it sounds like a set up. 2 more we working on look promising. 1 was from last year so shouldn't be a problem. Like I said its going to happen again for the 2nd year.

I need to keep up on this thread more often. I've had a rough week with my bike! she got stolen last saturday morning. But i got her back now.

Anyone riding out to saskatoon next weekend? I thought about it but the 6 hour ride doesnt sound appealing, i had have to get up at 6am after working until 3am. but maybe if there were a few people coming out of calgary, or even deadmonton i could detour&try to get friday night off. Anyway PM me if any of your dudes are going.
