Owner: Festus

I bought my baby in 2008 when I went to a Yamaha dealer here in Ft. Worth looking for a used Harley, While looking I saw her and while there I kept being drawn to her, after walking back to her over and over I knew that this was the bike for me, I bought her straight off the showroom floor no test ride no nothing! best decision I made, I love this bike and have shown several Harley's where they stand! I have slowly been making her my own and I still have a little to do. In the near future I am going to put some mid rise ape's on her and if I can find the right kind of fairing I will add that, and a power commander. but other than those few item's she is where I want her to be.

Length of time to build: can´t say exactly, about seven months - but some smaller mods were done within the years before

And the story/inspiration/additional comments: I bought the bike in 2005, without any mods. I was always fascinated by the drag bikes, which is a very popular special style in europe. At 1st I started with some smaller and cheaper stuff like license plate relocation and handlebars until i got the time and money to get into the heavy work. Almost everything was made by myself in my garage except the complex metal works like the fuel tank or the painting. Finally (it may be hard to believe for you guys) I had to show the bike to a state engineer to get the approval you need to drive on public roads with a vehicle in our country. Although we´ve got some strong regulations here, I got al the mods approved and incorporated in my documents now.
