2009 Cross Bones
Thank God There's Harleys... So, let's show them!
Right after his first Harley Cross Bones got wrecked in an accident early 2009 (Click HERE to view the wreck) Lou from Hamont, Belgium, bought himself a new one:
Lou confirms that again he is very satisfied with his new Cross Bones: "It is a fantastic bike and I did 15,000km in the year 2009."
Cross Bones Modifications
Lou took the above picture during a trip in September 2009, when she was still a stock bike. In February 2010 Lou sent us a few pics showing the modifications that he has made over the winter, which a.o. include the replacement of the the original Ducktail rear fender with a Fat Boy fender, and the fitting of a 200mm rear tire.
Lou didn't really like the original grey paint of his second Cross Bones. That was not his color. The matte black that you now see on the tank and fenders is not paint though! Lou had the tank and fenders wrapped with a special foil in matte black.
This twin layer foil wrap system cost him about 1/3 of the price of a spray paint job, plus there was no need for sanding and priming. And he say's he's got an 8 year warranty on the foil wrap system, and that the original paint can easily be restored by simply removing the wrap!
The 1961-62 Harley Gunsight Tank Emblem reinforces the Old School image of this bike.
