Jeezuz Khrist! I cannot beleive I just read this. Really? OCC? Honda Fury? That shit is DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!! You'd be better off to buy an old Plymouth Fury. Have you seen whats going on around you lately?; fat back tires, raked front ends, stretched tanks (all the OCC, WCC, Big Dog BS died two years ago, thankfully). Take the bike that you have (which is a great platform) and build something timeless out of it. It'll perform, and you can ride the GD wheels off of it. Otherwise, decorate a cake and go to Starbuck's on Sunday mornings (people will laugh though...).

Nothing like stopping at a light or parking at a bar and everyone looking at it with the "I don't know what the hell that is, but it sure is fuckin' cool" look on their faces!

Didn't mean to rip on ya as hard as I did, but like morph and rich said, take what you have and make it your own. It'd be way cooler than a Fury (Honda was about 3yrs too late with that idea).

Yeah honda needs to replace the Fury with more of a backyard chopper/bobber/rat bike. Think less stretch more rat less OCC!

Oh, and no...not the phantom.

Well plans have morphed since I posted this mostly due to cost. As of right now the color stays burnt orange. I might ditch some of the chrome but nothing is going black. Cutting the rear fender straight across the bottom and getting an LED strip for tail light. Also doing LED strips for turn signals attached to the rear view mirrors kinda like the rod. Also would like to relocate the speedo and maybe a wire tuck. Then look into lowering it.

Anyone relocate their speedo yet? How and where?

Unfortunately there is no cash for it right now and I may have to face a reality of selling to get a roof on my house. Time will tell.
