    Hello from Leeds

    Hi, recently had a moment of madness(or in the words of the other half, a complete mental breakdown) and bought an old sportster to do a charity run. Turns out i had hangover from hell and it chucked it down so i never did said charity run and now i have a harley sat in my living room that ive never ridden. Its an 89 1200 thats been stripped,rebuilt and bobber’d this year. I just need to do some finishing touches and smarten it up a bit. Hope u are all good.

    Im after advice on it. After having modern bikes, the thing is completely weird to me. Ive started stickong a few bits of chrome on and gonna change the colour of it maybe. Ive had the seat re trimmed in crocodile skin since those pictures.

    Looks nice. Mine is a similar colour. The units in the second picture look familiar?

    Haha this is weird, the ex missus and daughter live in Yeadon. I'm the tester at Tyres 4 Less in Leeds. How come you've not ridden the Harley yet?

    Small world. I used to work for alba tyres when i was at school then eventually kwik fit mobile i used to collect tyres from there 20 years ago when charles and julian ran that and alba. Im also a tester, im freelance and i test bikes as well. Ive not used it as i just havent had time. It had an oil leak which ive sorted and by time id done that it had ran out of test and its a pain to get out the house.

    Haha it is a small world. Charles and Julian sold the Albas and us to a national company Micheldever/Protyre a couple of years back. Interesting that you're a tester too! Well when you get out on the road with it and fancy a ride out, let me know
