Well Ladies and gentleman, she's back. Complete enough to ride and take a few pictures. Yeah there's a piece missing, she's a few different shades of black(in varying stages of buffing), little bit Streetglide, touch of CVO, but mostly Roadglide and finally pinstripe free. For those that don't know, she attacked a Ford SVU last year and got beat up pretty good. Dealers first estimate was near 18K. I fought that down to 8K so I could keep her. This isn't really a build thread. More like a Built thread. Some peeps here thought I should share so I am. She's not quite done. She needs a little make up (buffing) and a fuel tank console. Powdercoater F'ed my black one up so I'm waiting for PcPain to ship my new one. So here she is.

Looks good, so I'm going to assume that you're all ok and ready to ride.

All injuries from the crash are healed well enough to ride. I had surgeries this winter on my forearms and carpal tunnels though so I'm having a hard time riding right now. The sport bike isn't bad. The Glide is challenging being heavier and I don't have much grip strength right now so the SE clutch spring is causing some problems. All good though. It's not even really spring here yet.

Thanks for the kind words folks. This whole ordeal has shown me just how much I love my Glide. I was out for a bit yesterday and I was soooo nervous. I do not want to go through that BS again. The other bikes are just...bikes and I wouldn't be devestated if I had to let either one go. There's a place in my heart for this one and I'm going to TRY to quit riding her like a $20 hooker.

That is really stunning the way you got her all decked out. Congrats, O Mighty One! Hope that you're 100% soon to take advantage of the warmer weather when it hits.
