New Old Bike

Yes, I’ve been neglecting the blogs, Faceyoubook, TV; don’t even know what’s happing on SOA. Is it still on? Neglecting damn near everything but work. That shit can really get in the way of life. But I’ve grown to like sleeping inside and eating regularly so I’ll have to continue paying taxes. I think the only good thing about my day job is that it supports my real job of working on my bikes.


The ’02 Ultra is back in one piece with a few changes. A nice fresh 95-inch, S&S 510G gear drive cams, Fueling cam plate, oil pump & lifters, S&S intake and Hooker exhaust. The front brake system was rebuilt with Brembo’s from a 2010. The rear brake and forks are next. When you put a whole lot of go into one of these things, you’ve got to put in a whole lot of whoa also.

I have to agree about work getting in the way. Not enough vacation time, or else it's time without pay.

you are one major step ahead of most of us being able to do all of this by yourself. The rest of us have to pay a mechanic

It is good to get the bike done. I do my own wrenching and anything I may want to be lazy about my son does. He better dad paid for his MMI school. Bet it sounds real good now too.

Your gonna need the extra strength Poly Grip now. Brakes hell, you might need a parachute.

Wow! It is good that you managed to restore the bike. I bet it sounds rad with the new modification you’ve installed. The new S&S intake would help vastly increase midrange torque and horsepower. You definitely know your way around bikes. I hope you finish working on it. Keep us posted!

Wonderful. Getting your motorcycle restored is the best thing you did. I hope the bike performs better now. Michelin Motorcycle Tires are top quality tires as well. to improve the bike's performance as well as handling.
