    Bike build

    Decided that it was either time to get a new bike or make this one my own. So after a bunch of searching and reading, I decided to give mine a new look. Hard to part with a old EVO with relatively low kms (60kms) they are so easy to work on and pretty much bullit proof.
    I have been searching the internet looking for colour choices ( this aint easy ). I didnt want black or aleast not all black, and I am partial to blue.
    Well I seen the new 2012 Ultra limited in Big Blue Pearl and Vivid Black and knew thats the colour I wanted, this is where problem starts. Have you ever tried to get Harley colour codes, they wont tell you anything. Finally was able to match it with another colour.
    Located a custom painter/ air brusher to paint it and do custom stripes.

    Here is what it looked like to start:

    1998 Electra Glide Classic FLHTC
