Found this on another forum. Nameless. lol Trike Lady mentioned some "chopper" Wings the other day.... and I thought they were cool. This looks like a fun in town ride.

Suddenly I feel overdressed for the occasion. Certainly bikes I would admire without feeling compelled to ride. The beauty of simplicity.

Actually, those are bikes I WOULD ride...to a couple select locations where my HD buds hang. They'd be interested, appear somewhat non-plussed, distractedly curious, but outwardly casual. Then in secret, they'd be wildly impressed, and more than a bit jealous...no more tinkering on the finicky pushrod v-twin and the worry about taking it ANYWHERE on the open road for several thousand miles in a week. Dang, it's a Honda:D
No slagg inferred or intended vintage HD (at least post 1970 anyway) enthusiasts (I love the original FXR bikes) but it shows what the early GL's were made of..and what the possibilities still are.:cool:

When you see these types of customs, done by people who ride motorcycles, you can see the reason for the customization. Unlike the junk that is put out for show.... namely the one after another chopper with the V Twin engine.

People build customs for different reasons. Some just out of desire for a visibly different ride of their own, some for the notoriety, some for fame/$$, but some just because they want to actually ride something that nobody else has. The show bike customs are nothing more than sidewalk furniture IMO, but some of them (like a few of these) are actual rider's daily's. Hat's off to them!:cool:
