Just found the site and I like. Building a 2002 Road King Classic right now after my Fatboy was totaled after I was hit by a flying wheel and tire while riding down the freeway. I decided since I couldn't walk or work I might as well do all the mods myself. Bought it while I was still in the wheelchair and I've lowered the front end 2", put air ride on rear, a buddy and I are doing the paint right now, took off the leather bags and swapped in hard bags, 21" 80 spoke twisted front with matching 16" on the back on whitewalls, installing a Woodys fairing with stereo and putting 16" apes as soon as the paint on them dries.

Probably not the typical bike on here, because it's not chopped and shaved, but that may change real soon.

Thanks for a good looking site.

Well 808Bagger, its probably going to look gangster style for now to you and others. If I come into more money later I will build it stretched and raked. Right now I just dont have the money to buy the body parts I would like as I kind of changed my mind how I wanted to build it halfway through and now out of money, but want to ride. My buddy used to work for Harley doing their paint jobs so the paint is really only costing me supplies so if I get fenders and stretched bags later the paint will be cheap which helps. Here's a picture of the start.

It's hard to comprehend what it must be like to be in a serious traffic accident and still be inspired to get back out on the road. I've broken many bones on my dirt bikes but it was always my own fault. I'll assume my day will come but I guess it's a risk we're all willing to take. Hope you're back to a 100% soon.

Well everyone around me does think I'm crazy, but it could have happened in a car or just walking, so in my mind I have a second chance and I'm going to have fun with it. This was the most tragic accident that I have ever been in and am getting back into things like I was before so working good for me. Scariest part was they told me I might lose me heel, but luckily that didn't happen. I use to ride everyday to work and it happened while riding home one morning. You can't beat the freedom a bike gives you while riding, being out in the open air and how it clears my mind, that's why I got another.
