Bat Wing to Shark Nose Conversion

My new handle is EZMotoTim - I've been here for years as FXD-Tim. I haven't owned a Super Glide in 8 years and I traded my Road Glide in on an Ultra Limited Low for my wife, so it's time for a new brand.

Recently I converted the Bat Wing to a Shark Nose and created a series of 8 videos showing the change. The first 3 episodes are up on YouTube. you can see them on my channel EZ Moto Tim

There is also a video on the reverse gear we installed on the Limited and others about mods I did to my Triumph Trophy.

That's a great compliment - thanks. I have to laugh - my wife wants me to be more animated and smile more. For me, his on-camera stuff is harder than it looks.

You did a great job. That on-camera stuff is hard. With my New York accent I would sound like a character from the Soprano's if I tried it.
