summer hack

collected my new old softail last night. needed a decent summer commuter bike to rack the miles up on and this '85 softail came up at the right money.

as ever it wants a few style augmentations but its all there and rides nice.

hate the whitewalls but not enough to throw out perfectly useable rubber, the seat is wider than the tank and a myriad of little odds n sods but its a rider, wont be anything fancy, just a stripped down, blacked out softail. aim was for a commuter bike that doesnt take a ton of fettling so it should fit the bill just fine, im lucky enough to have other stuff for my "cool" bike
