    Well, this project doesn't have pedals and requires a license to ride, fun nonetheless. '65 Harley Sportster. Gotta love the love the ol' kick start only 883cc 4 stroke Ironheads.

    Guess you don't the history behind Harley Davidson.

    In 1903, three men from Milwaukee had a really unique view of what they thought motorized bicycling should be. In a 10 X 13 foot shed, with borrowed tools, and some metal, Arthur and Walter Davidson along with Bill Harley set out to build the very first Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
    Using only a three horsepower engine, the trio designed a unique loop frame, which would set it apart from any other cycle in its time. They would go on to build a total of three bikes in their first year. In 1907, the eldest Davidson brother, William, joined the team. Later that same year, after building 150 bikes, these four men followed their vision and incorporated what is today The Harley-Davidson Motor Company.

    My first MAB was a Peugeot moped. I've had 10 or more motorcycles since then, but my Peugeot was my favorite. Now, 45 years later, I'm moving towards that same type of mobility again.

    we're all traveling the same way, on 2 wheels with a motor. in my eyes the only people not welcome are the negative ones who join 3 months ago post a couple dozen times and think they know better than the ones who have been here for a couple years and have contributed their knowledge, opinion, and experience a thousand times

    LET ME F@#KING TELL YOU SOMETHING ..WHAT I DON'T LIKE IS those paper towels with the cut outs closer . I mean you either get a little piece or way to much and if you get the small one when you go to get another you get the 3 . Why is that ???

    It's well known that sadomasichists are drawn into the paper towel industry......from there it's a small jump into politics.
