Usually when some one calls asking about motorcycle stuff. I always try and be honest when it comes to buying a motorcycle. I always say buy a running bike with a title. Over and fucking over I have said this. If you are gonna build a chopper then great you started with a bike that runs and has a title. See what you do is as soon as you buy the bike you go get it registered and then the next day you start chopping it up. Bikes legal and you know you have a running bike from the goddamn get go. Me I was so sick with shovel fever that I bought the best cheapest shovel I could get my hands on. Yes it was cheap as fuck but oh am I paying for it now. After 5 rounds of a losing battle the top end is coming off and going up to Noot. The rear cylinder has 0 compression and for a motor that is supposed to be rebuilt that is a black mark. Better make it right now because the weather is starting to break and I have a shit ton of trips coming up and if I have to ride the ironhead so be it but I built the shovel for riding on trips. Fucking thing is fighting me but I am in it for the long haul. Haven't been beat yet by two wheels and it is so close but today I started pulling it apart and felt like I should have taking my own advice. It is a tough pill to swallow.
