New used Harley

This is my new toy. It was found for me by a friend (Dave Perewitz custom bike builder in Bridgewater, MA).
He got it from a contact in Virginia. It's a 2007 Harley Electra Glide made to look like a Street Glide. It's coming up to MA soon and when it gets here it's getting a mild custom paint job before I get it. All other changes, tune ups and modifications will be done by me.
I know it's not a true project. But, It's new to me.

Congrats! I've considered getting a bike recently, but my girlfriend's father was injured in a bike accident many moons ago and she is dead against it. Considering how she fully supports the rest of my car hobby, its tough for me to argue with her.

PS: This was exactly what I meant by Non-Mopar Project! I want to see what else you guys drive, and I'm sure everyone else will too! (Ok, well, maybe I don't want to see your Toyotas, but I guess if you had a Supra I might pay attention...)

Nice motorcycle!

I've never gotten into them. I figure it's too late to start, now that I have young kids. I also think MA isn't the best place for me to learn. Too many nuts on the road.

And from Ryan's comment, I guess he doesn't want to see a picture of the sunvisor I just installed in my wife's Highlander...

Haha, I missed this before.
Eh, Toyotas are ok I guess. You can post about anything you want, I just can't say I won't stick my tongue out at it.
My buddy has an 09 Highlander and he worships the thing like its more than the Camry-based SUV it really is...

Bike is now home and is in the process of being painted. Also adding a lot of extras and updating some other things.

Well,

I know this thread is DEAD and has been for awhile. I still feel the need to finish what I started. So, here is the finished product.
It has been repainted black and now has some red and silver old school pinstripe on it. Nice, clean and not to loud. Accept for the pipes.

Thanks for looking. I'll stick to Mopar topic in the furture.

Oh I like that!
Very nice overall, and the pin stripes really add to it!

I, for one, am happy you posted it.
I don't ever plan on having a motorcycle of my own, but I still like them!

Tastefully done, if you ask me.
