Just picked up an 05 Hammer on Wednesday and i have been lurking around the forums all week. I picked up a bit of a neglected bike that is going to need some work to get her on the road again. Couldn't pass up the deal though.

Anyways...just a bit about myself, i'm active duty Navy, been in almost 12 years. Big into hunting during the winter and now riding again in the summer. First Victory i have owned, and the first cruiser at that as well. Looking forward to getting the bike on the road and seeing how she rides.

Thanks fellas.

Well, she needs a lot actually. I have to fit new tires on it to start. The bike has been sitting outside for a long time, so lots of cosmetic work has to be done, but that i can do over time. The big thing is i need to drain, clean and reline the gas tank. I also need a new gas cap since the locking mechanism is broke on this one. The front fork seals need to be replaced, which i am still trying to figure out exactly what kit to buy since it has the Marzochi forks. The dealer wants $136 for the kit and says i need two...from some digging i have heard i only need 1 kit, and that kit has more in it than i really need to do the forks.

Anyways...also need to find a new choke adjustment because i just noticed last night that the piece on the left controls is broken off. I need to replace a turn signal, but thought about doing the led signals i saw in the Hammer forum.

Like i said...she needs a lot, but i paid $4k for the bike and it only has 3200 miles on it. Couldn't pass up the deal!
