What's the tattoo on his neck say?
I thought it says "I'm crazy and ride standing on my seat" But I could be wrong. JB

No, I missed it!Choppers are cool looking,but not for NY roads,ya know what I mean?ha ha ah-Jim just picked up the literature for the 2004 Harleys-You gotta see the VRSCB-V-Rod-Black frame,silver and black powertrain,aluminum color,115 hp,it looks like a rocket on wheels-very futuristic:)But I still like the Dyna-lowrider!:)Just the other night , we were headed toward the Holland tunnel, this bike whitelines it, doing about 50 ,and Jim goes into the other lane, the guy clipped off my sideview mirror-if we woulda moved,I'd say, 3 more inches,he would of definitely went down-thank God! There was no damage and the guy just kept going! Unbelievable!
Stay well, Naz-hey, if you find a picture of it,post it!
Talk to you soon!
I love those shows. Maybe one day I will get a chance to ride. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif I did not like Indian Larry's first bike (the one where he put on the spokes on the wheels), but the one he built to beat Lane was awesome. He is a pretty stand up buy helping Lane get his bike running.
My favorite builder in those shows was Borgetts (my spelling is way off on his name). He runs the oil through the bottom of his frame. Very cool.

The Great Bike Build-Off...featuring 2 time winner Choppers Inc.'s own Billy Lane and "my" cousin Nick Fredella vs. 1 time winner from Gasoline Alley's Indian Larry. No doubt Larry's bike was the pick this time but ya gotta hand it to Billy...he builds some sick stuff!! www.choppersinc.com (http://www.choppersinc.com)
Ya he has a bike shop out in WilliesBurgs/green point area.
I met him about four years ago through a friend at a block party, cool guy bought me a coors. I doubt that he would remember me but i'll never forget him what with all those Tats.

The tattoo on his neck stated as follows..."in god we trust" that was the top line. the 2nd line was tattooed in reverse so he could read it in a mirror. it said "vengeance is mine say it the lord" i do not remember if there was another one. he explained them on tv....cool bike he built both times.....................................mike

I absolutely LOVE the look of that rigid-pan-I dont know,theres something about panheads!Yeah, its very rare you see any choppers on the road, there mostly for show now,but when one does come by, it definitely turns heads:):):)Jims knucklehead was similar to this-one day he'll have the time and put it together,hopefully!It doesnt matter when-I dont think Harleys will ever deppreciate!:)What am I riding?ha ha ha ha-NOTHING!The last bike I rode was a 2000 Dyna Wide Glide between the years 2000-2001-then I had that neck thing going on and had the plate put in my neck, so now Im scared!:(Jim traded that bike for the 2003 Dyna Wide Glide and has these massive ape-hangers on them-(I think he did it on purpose,ha ha ha ha)-I've never even ridden on the back of it!Oh, at a party, I did take a friends Nightrain for a ride-I dont like the racing bars,though!One day I'll get the courage back-when I buy the Dyna-Lowrider!
You stay well Naz, thanks for the info and thanks for asking!

I met Indian Larry on the road to Am-Jam in '86. He just put his chopped Chief on the road and blew the front cylinder gasket. My buddie and I stopped, helped him out and the 4 of us were back on the road. He's definately the real deal vs. the modern day "Discovery channel bikers" you see everywhere.
Larry also does alot of work for the 3rd st. guys.
