So I have the extra tube that I had to replace and you are welcome to have it for nothin if you want to PM me your address. I would be happy to drop it in the mail to you and since I live here in Illinois as well....it shouldn't take you long to get it. Let me know.
YES!!!!! I knew if i dug deep enough into this forum i would find my answer!!!! I'm working on an OP Roller i was lucky enough to find at a walmart in town. Last one in stock had been on the shelf for 2 yrs+ so they marked it down to $79. Wanting to add a springer but knew that with the 7" Steering tube i was going to have to modify something. Now all that is left to decide is Classic Springer, or Bent springer...... I'm kinda going for the Old School lowrider look. (banana seat, HIGH back sissy bar, ape hangers.....)
Love this place!!! So many great ideas and information to be found here!!
