and motorcycle rider, owns this
bike is slightly tuned and delivers 80hp at the
rear wheel. Unfortunately George did not have
the chance to ride her lately. We hope,
that he will find some time to get this bike
back on the road, roaming
across the Black forest,
or around the Bodensee
in Germany. Click into

introduced the FXE 1200
with a wonderful
pinstriping in red white
and blue on black
fenders. The bike became
presentable, ready to
ride it to the late show

Harleys are precious collectors items. They
are sought after like never before. The old
style padlock at the lower end of the
headset, and the easy to manipulate ignition
switch is not a big deal for an interested

If you are just over to warm your preferred
peaches, and have to park your sled outside
on the street, there is a solution. It is
unobtrusive (without the red key) but
effective. Press the red key towards the
bike, turn it to the right, and remove it. The
main power cable
interrupted, the bike will not start. Some
folks call it immobilizer. This is not
true though, as long there is a truck and
some accomplices around. But it may help!
