Time To Say Hi

New to MH. I've been riding for over 20 years (dirt bikes, sneaking out Dad's bikes, my bikes, etc.). I currently have a "toy" for a bike... 1974 HD Ironhead XLCH (kickstart only Sportster). I say toy because that is just what it is, by no means is this a daily rider. I'm currently tweaking it here and there to make it more of a Cafe/boardtracker than a cruiser. Now, just because it is a HD and an old one at that don't think that I go out squidin'. Things change when you have a family, right? Full hemet, armored jacket/gloves and boots. Looking forward to chiming in here and there when I have something to add. Here is a list of past rides:

'80 YZ80
'84 CR250
'87 Nighthawk 750(?)
'95 YZF600
'03 V-Star 1100 Custom
'74 Harley XLCH

I'll have to find pics of the past bikes at home, but here are a couple of the Ironhead.

Before:

It already looks different than that last picture, but I'll snap newer ones once the more recent mods are complete.

You appropriately placed a comma before your co-coordinating conjunction! We're gonna get along.
