About this blog

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the site. I thought it would be interesting to tell you about my purchase and restoration (not from the ground up) of my 1986 Harley FLHTP Police bike. I plan to put together some information regarding my journey. Hope you enjoy.

A bit of history

Growing up I had an interest in motorcycles.  My first bike was a Honda trail bike. It was street legal and I rode it to and from the trails near my cousin's house off of Islington avenue near Woodbridge. The odd time we use to get chased by the police because I think some of it was private property. Lots of people went there but it seemed they were after the bikes. I next moved up to a Honda CB 750. Too much power for me I think but when you are 17 or 18 you don't care. Then life happened. Sold

Next Steps

Update January 18, 2019. So now I have the Bike, it's with my mechanic and the waiting begins. After a few weeks, I get a call from my mechanic and he says that overall things look pretty good. But there is a but! He tells me that the frame is a bit worse that he thought. He said he will need some time to think about it. He also said that the has a friend who is an expert when it comes to welding and frames. He tells me that it may take a while to get it checked out but if anyone can fix it

Searching Outside North America

Entry January 25, 2019 So in my search for parts, I came across Jan Willem Boom 7963 RV Ruinen The Netherlands. jw@jwboon.nl. Lots of items for me but the only thing was that he didn't ship outside of Europe any longer. However, on his comments section of the site, I came across a request from someone in the US for information on parts for his Harley. There had been no response, so I decided reach out to let him know that they didn't ship to the States or Canada. Well thanks to this ge
