Name's David. I live in Dallas, Texas, USA. Funny thing finding other grease monkeys. When my girlfriend was doing roller derby all of the boyfriends of the skaters on her team were Grease Monkeys. I cut up the shirt to put on the back of my vest. I was actually going to see if we needed to start a Dallas chapter of the Grease Monkeys MC. No 1%, no drugs, just a bunch of guys that want to ride. I'll get around to taking a photo of my jacket to send in.

Cool. Welcome in David. I used to live in San Antonio till I fell asleep on my Sporty after drinkg beer all day in a roadhouse up in the hill country outside Austin and ran off the road into an electricity pole. Not recomended. What are you riding?

Forgot to mention that didn't I? I've got a 1973 Harley XLCH (Ironhead Sporty). It's kind of rare in the fact that they only made them in right side shift for a few years. It's rattle can black, has apes, spring seat, S & S carb, and drag pipes. Other than that it's stock. It's a hell of a lot of fun to ride when it wants to work. I'm currently running over the logistics of jockey shifting it since it is an English setup.

A mate of mine just got a 73 with long forks but that's left side shift. I'll have to get some pics of that. One of the Deus boys has a right side shift one.
