    I’m heading to the Fuel Cleveland events next weekend, so that means only one thing: I won’t be able to kick start it in front of all the other people. Just the way the universe works.

    Not sure if it would work with a Dyna S, but my guess is that it...

    Shitty welds look shitty under chrome too, and you can’t use Bondo to make them look better. I had a pro finish weld my sissy bar before I had it chromed. I trust my welding only for things that...
