Hey everyone
Yes its true - Finally !
After about a two year project with help from many of you
my bike is up and running. I can't tell you how I felt to hear
it come to life and take that maiden voiage around the lake.
The S&S has alot more pep than the twin cam I've been riding.
The Baker shifts real smooth and the Pro clutch is a dream.
The V&H Big Radious 2 In2 2 has a awsome bark.
It took quite a while to loose that grin off my face.A few friends
were taking pictures and cheering me on.I still can't beleive it.
I would like to thank evryone who helped me out with info,pics & parts.
Just to name a few Moe,Ryan,Dan E.,Staffy, Bob from BDM ,Jim, Lena,Irish,Hosh,Pete,Bill,Mikie V. from Twin Tech & of coarse Biker Babe ( The pic of her with her Chopper is forever etched in my mind )I'm sorry if I didn't didn't mention everyone you know who you are.
I would like to E mail someone a few pics to post for me.As I'm on dial up
and can't figure it out !
Thank you all. Tim ( proud BDB member )
Sent Brew a few pics-Please read on - He will post for me. Dial up in the sticks of Catskill Mnts.

Thank you for all the compliments . My Home Dawg is a dream come true.I really never thought I could pull it off.But with alittle encouragement and lots of help from many of you,my dream is a reality.I am very proud of my acomplishment and I get to think about my efforts and evryones help when I ride and look at the bike every bolt,washer and part.
I went with the Thunderheart micro wire system. The modual fit great in the space in the rear fender. All the wires are marked and color coded , came with everthing including shrink tubes. So easy even a Carpenter could do it.You can tell by the suprised/puzzeled look on my face in the pic of wiring I was alittle overwhelmed !Its my favorite pic of the build . 39 wires -one at a time I got it done.They also have a great Tech guy Larry who helped me threw a few questions.
Any help I can offer any of you-Please don't hesitate to ask.I wish everyone could build there own bike as I did , its an awsome feeling.I know time and money are hard to come by these days but I encourage you to do it if its something you really want.
Well its time to put some more hours on the bike !
Thanks all Tim
