Hey guys! New to the forum and IH (just got IHSH-62 and have 634S ordered) and figured my first post might as well be in the motorcycle thread. Here’s my Road King Classic. Cheers!

Took part of the DGR 2018 ride this weekend raising funds for prostate cancer and mental health in men. Nearly 100 bikers in my city, which was a good show considering it was the first time we do it locally.

I rode my Scrambler and paired it with my IHSH-91 (hickory striped workshirt with snaps) and Viberg country boots in waxed flesh. Very low quality pic so I had to tell you what I wore.

It was fun! Consider joining it in your city next year!

^ Excellent bike! Identical to my 2009 one, color too. Yours is liquid cooled I believe. I use mine around the city mostly, no long trips on it. Very enjoyable around town. Congrats!

Some pictures of a rare 1971 Norton Commando I finished restoring at the shop:





I took this bike down to the frame, got everything powdercoated and re-CAD plated, balanced the crank, rebuilt the motor gearbox, swingarm, forks, etc.

I’m a huge fan of Nortons,and that has to be one of the best restorations I’ve ever seen. Would love to see a video with the bike running. Check out www.metroracing.com for some cool Norton t-shirts/jerseys.
