Old 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 thief. Both they are not tamper-proof. 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 will be
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!
The favourite tank painting
Harley riders are known for their exceptional taste, when it comes down to the paintwork on the tanks or fenders of their beloved bikes. This one was found on a 1996 Fatboy in Northern Germany. From fantasy creatures to complete historical scenes, skulls, and figures from comic books.
Check 'em out, they are all over the web. You might find an inspiration how to change the looks of your own scooter.
