Our Blog to Feature Readers’ Rides

9

December 10, 2010 | By: Bud Milza

I was checking out all the great photos of bikes that our fans have put on our Facebook page and it came to me that we really should feature some of these customers’ rides on our blog. Take a quick peek at the 926 or so photos on Facebook and you’ll get a new perspective on how no two bikes are truly alike.  From stock bikes with simple handlebar and seat swaps, to full-blown ground-up custom builds, everybody’s preference, style and taste is different.

What one rider thinks a Fat Boy should look like can be the complete opposite of another biker.  The personalization that goes into each and every bike really shines through in these submitted pics, and I decided then and there to bring my Readers’ Rides notion before our esteemed blogging team at its next meeting. Why not feature some customer bikes in our blog, I asked? Why not, indeed, the blogging team responded. So now it’s time for you to do your part.

Do you think your bike has what it takes to be featured in Readers’ Rides?  If so, please email your best photos to blogmemberservices [at] jpcycles [dot] com. Each month our team of bloggers will select one motorcycle to be featured in Readers’ Rides.

If your photo is selected, you’ll be notified via email with further instructions. So bring it on, people.  Baggers, choppers, bobbers, diggers, streetfighters —whatever it is that you ride, take a picture of it because we want to see it. Please have your pictures submitted by 12/31/2010.

Good luck and thank you in advance for participating.

I trie,d to send picture,s of our bike and they won,t go thru.

I think it is an awesome idea. I am sending in my honeys 1989 Custom Sportster and for all of those wondering he did this build on his own on a very TIGHT LIMITED budget so it can be done.. Why wont my email go thru to the email address to send in pics of bikes? Tried 2x wont go thru says undeliverable ..?? Help

Lots of deals from this site and I always find what I’m looking for..I have sent a few pics of my bike, hope it gets picked…Nice ’85 Low Rider…

Well, I too am going to send in a photo. My ’72 Leggero is all apart. My 1952 is not a “rider” anymore. All I have left is my ’05 Suzuki S50, and ’72 XLCH Sportster. My ’72 is 97% original. Through the years it has had a headlight upgrade, new rear chain, and two years ago, the original tail light went out. The King and Queen seat (’70s style) was dealer installed by Spitzies H-D, in Schenectady, NY. Everything else is as it was in 1972. The paint too! It also is still under 12,000 original miles. It does not leak a drop of oil, and still starts on the first kick. I am very proud to own her.

Thanks for the chance to share the garage customizer’s work. Most J&P customers can’t afford the +$40K custom builds that win the bike shows.

I hope you pick my ride! A lot of dedication and I guess love for riding went into this rebuild,all done by me except the paint job and trueing the flywheel! Kudos to you for the help and parts to do this!It is good to see rides done by us “regular” people for a change!

I hope you pick my ride!! A lot of love and dedication went into my rebuild , all done by me but the paint job and truing the flywheel…so kinda proud of it , and the help your company gave me in getting and finding parts!!Kudos to you! It’s good to see bikes that “normal” people build for once!

Can’t wait to see all the great bikes. Awesome idea!!

I think it’s a great idea. I’d love to see some more modest builds as well. Little intimidating for those of us on a limited budget when all we see are the ground-up customs. Looking forward to seeing those, but also the ‘new handlebars, grips, seats, etc.’ customs as well.
