Motorbike: gs1200 panhead chop
Modifications: chopped to bits
Default 1984 fxrp

This started out as a cop bike in California.
1st year EVO motor.
The bike has been built as a hotrod and all the cop stuff stripped off it
Bored and Stroked out to 106 cubic inches
The FXR frame is reckoned to be the best handling frame harley ever built.
A young engineer named Erik Buell helped design it and he went on to build his own racebikes
They have cult status over here and fetch decent prices.
It's a fun bike and goes really well and gets a lot of looks wherever I go on it.
last pic is 3 FXR's

You got the 'Club-Bike' look off to a Tee

Often wondered, does the FXR get the same full-blown vibration in the midrange that the 1340 Dynaglides do ?

Sons of anarchy special alright, this yoke is a torque monster and it's like riding a ridgid, fun to ride but it just wants to shake the living shit out of me.

1.7 Litres No wonder the thing shakes like a pile-driver.

Still - I'd love a blast of a standard FXR (or better one of the P models) sometime, see if they're much different from the Dynas.
