Go yourself!

Just kidding. Let me get a proper soda blasting setup first. It appears that harley coated the jugs one color grey, and then recoated them another color grey for buell. I'm not even doing my heads right now cause it took so long to strip them. When I say 4 days, I mean wake up, coffee, get to work constant till passing out, get up, repeat. This was redicules. The cases as you you read, were single color/layer and it just peeled right off. A proper soda blaster rig would have done this in 1-2 hours...

So far I've PC'd the rocker box covers, the shifter lever and linkage, front sprocket, rear brake caliper bracket, fuel rail, front exhaust bracket, tensioner pulley bracket, coil bracket,and one of the engine mounts. Tomorrow is jugs, cases, rear exhaust bracket. Once engine is back on the bike I'm doing the rear chop of the cheese grater and then something real pimp is going to happen to the rims. It's a secret...

The next will be a metric, for commuting, and the next after that will most likely be an Indian Buell.

Indian HOW HOW or Indian Red Dot? I'm talking the Buell/Hero 1190 street model. Race model is 40K. No word on street price yet.

Hero, an India company just invested 25mil in Buell/EBR.

i knew to which you were referring, but since you wrote indian, i decided to comment on the lack of options on the current Polaris/Indian iterations.
