    Just thought I would share a picture of my BAR BIKE. It is a custom build from UMC Ultra Motorcycle Co. It's a fun ride.

    Looks good. Did all the parts come painted or chromed?

    About how many hours was the build and what did it run you?

    The bike came just as you see it. It is called The Groundpounder ST. Came from the Calif. Shop and was just a touch over $30,000.

    Blitzen, nice bike!

    Here's what I did with a salvaged Fat Boy.

    ETA: I just learned that I don't know how to post a picture. Oops.

    Just go to attach file at the bottom and hit browse, click on your picture and you are there. Another way is a web host. That is what I use, PhotoBucket.

    That's what I thought I did (twice, actually) and my browser even showed the picture being uploaded to the server, but nothing showed up on the post. Old farts and computers don't mix, I guess.

    And the other side.

    The chrome is reflecting the trees all around my yard.

    Thanks.

    It's got 95" jugs, a cam, 11:1 pistons, ported heads, a Mikuni smoothbore, Python pipes, upgraded ignition module, and a few other little goodies. When it comes onto the cam, you'd never believe it's a Harley. Lotta fun. It's the bike I ride when I have no place in particular to go.

    What about yours? Can you show a close-up shot of the rear wheel, too?

    Here are a few pictures. Will have to do for now. I am off to the hospital in the am. When I get home and start rehab I will have more time to brake it down for you.

    You are correct on it not being a custom. I just refer to it as my custom build. Sorry for the deception.

    Oh no need for sorry.Its a nice Bike.You will catch alot of grief from guys with ground up customs by calling the ultra a custom but who cares.Its all about what you want and what you like so like I said just ride the ass off that thing and enjoy.

    Well Sh*#. Looks like my summer is shot for ridding my scooter now. I have had my spine fused with rods from my ass to my neck for a long time now. Started having low back pain a few weeks ago so spent a couple of days in the hospital to find out why. (FOUND IT) I managed to brake my titanium rods in 4 places. I guess it's an easy fix but will take most of the summer to rehab it. Bike goes back in the garage and covered for the summer.
