Eish! Finished But Not Klaar

Some 4yrs ago, Eish! came into our lives. She was a brand new Harley Softail Custom FXSTC, 'out the box' & brought immediate pleasure into our lives. She started off looking like this:


Over the following 2yrs, Hubs changed to a customised single seat, added a whole heap of chrome & changed the wheels - which resulted in this:



This year, Hubs finally did what he'd wanted to do for ages - he organised a custom paint job, which resulted in this:




He still wants to tweak a few things, but overall, Hubs is one happy chappy. He has the bike of his dreams. It took over 30yrs to achieve it, but I have to say, it really was well worth the wait!

Hubs & Eish! April 2011




Eish! is a South African expression used to describe amazement :-)


Sincere thanks to Louis at The Wrench, Willie of Galaxy Custom Paint & 'Tank Girl' for her amazing graphics!

Hey darlin'!
I'm having heaps of trouble with the old one - just keep getting a message saying I can't publish in the selected time foremat - which I keep changing - which doesn't get accepted! I just thought fukkit, I've had enuff, so yep, I reckon this will be my new perch on the interweb!

thank god you're back in the saddle again (altho it clearly isn't the saddle on that sexy looking Harley - where do you sit? Don't tell me it has a side car?!) Great to hear your dulcet tones again. Keep it up!

Wreckless - nag nag nag......give me a break - I started didn't I? LOL
I do have heaps more in store, but time is a problem at the moment. I need to post on the Hardly Ferguson 'rally' cos that deserves a good bitch!

Verena - no room for me on Hubs bike, so I take my position on the 'couch', which the other Harley :-)

Thank you guys for your support :-)
