Night 8 of Hanukkah and the last of my favorite fxr’s this year.
...
I say it’s the last of my favorites but that’s not true, every year it’s so hard to pick just 8 bikes when there are so many nice ones and these are just 8 that really stand out for whatever reason when I think back fxrs I love.
...
I’ve had a couple fxr4’s and unlike last nights anniversary bike they didn’t get the best factory paint. They’re not the easiest to make look great. Color matching a fairing is usually too much of the tangerine or yellow, @nhinz0 got it just perfect with the matching windshield though, mint vert bags and the chrome lightning star wheels look right at home and also period correct for 2000. Just another perfect example of keeping it classy while adding just the right amount of cool.
...
Nick is also another one of the guys who really makes the fxr community what it is and does a ton of work helping guys out without ever looking for anything in return. #hanukkah #fxr4 #fxr

Night 7 of Hanukkah and the seventh of eight of my favorite fxr’s this year.
...
I don’t know if everyone else loves the anniversary bikes as much as me but damnit if they didn’t get he best paint jobs! Seeing enough done up it seems a fine line between keeping it all stock and pimping it out without going over the top, best example I’ve seen of one done is definitely @grosshd34’s 85th. Just absolute perfection in my opinion, still classy looking but with all the upgrades you could want. #hanukkah #fxr

Night 6 of Hanukkah and the sixth of eight of my favorite fxr’s this year.

Whether you’re on the west coast, east coast or anywhere in between, if you live fxrs you’ve probably crossed paths with @longrangemotorcycles. I’ve never been partial to red bikes and this is one of the few I love... super clean and set up perfect for smashing miles, best fairing, best bags, best seat and powered by an s&s 111” with some special love from everyone’s most trusted engine builder @a1mike. You’ll also notice the hardest fxr part to get, the side cover trophy from being one of only a small handful to ride to all three(east, west and sturgis) fxr events in one year. Anyone who knows me should already know my favorite aspect of a bike isn’t how much cool kid shit is on it but how well it can put down miles and doesn’t just look good in a parking lot, this bike and Jon certainly pass that test. #hanukkah #fxr

Night 5 of Hanukkah and the fifth of eight of my favorite fxr’s this year.
...
This ones kind of another double but not. I don’t think I know anyone who puts as much love and passion into his bike as @dylan_t_williams_805. Starting with a stock 94 superglide he tore it down to the frame, split the cases and rebuilt the entire bike himself. Put together a killer fxr with an awesome stock style paint job, tons of cool hard to find HD parts and cool details. Not long later for whatever reason he wanted a change so tore it all apart again to bring another vision to reality. The details on the bikes and his passion for hunting down all the cool little rare pieces to build them exactly how envisions them is so much fun to watch. If you don’t already just go follow his page to check out all the detail pictures and check out someone who truly loves these bikes and not just around them because they’re the hot thing right now. #hanukkah #fxr

Night 4 of Hanukkah and the fourth of eight of my favorite fxr’s this year.
...
I hope no one thought I wouldn’t have any fxr choppers make the list this year! Went back and forth and couldn’t pick just one of @humongous_custom_cycles fxrs and this is my stupid list so I make the rules and posting both for night 4. I don’t know him at all but dude builds some amazing bikes and the both of these look like they’d be so much fun to ride. I think the first one would be my pick if I absolutely had to pick just one, but not by much... which would you go with? #hanukkah #fxrchopper #humongouscustomcycles

@trune’s bike is easily my favorite shovel rt. I don’t know enough about it to say much other than it’s clean as fuck and possibly my favorite factory style not factory paint job. Pair that with a shovelhead drivetrain and no gaudy high dollar parts dripping all over it and I’m sure it’s one that will still be cool for many many years to come. #hanukkah #fxrt #shovelhead

Night 2 of Hanukkah and the second of eight of my favorite fxr’s this year.
...
There’s a lot of really nice FXRP’s out there these days and @suicide_king_chris has built a handful of them but this one here is my favorite. This is the one that made me fall in love with rp’s. •••
First time I saw it was at the fxr jam in Maggie Valley three years ago, me and Glenda rode out on my ‘94, met up with @87rtrobert in Atlanta and he brought us up into the Smokey mountains. It was my first time in the Smokey’s and everything was absolutely amazing, we pulled up at night to the hotel and as soon as we got off the bikes I met Chris, Joe, Wilson, Dustin and a bunch of other great guys for the first time in real life. After our little meet and greet I went strolling around to check out the bikes and Chris’ RP stood out immediately, even in the dark you could tell just how clean and nice it was, could say it was love at first sight. I was probably just as excited as Chris when I heard he bought it back and was bringing it back to the jam this year. #fxrp #hanukkah

First night of Hanukkah, just like the past few years, to celebrate my Jewish half I’m going to put up 8 of my personal favorite fxrs from this past year.
...
For night one I’m going with @swankfxr 94 FXLR. I’ve got a thing for green and gold and also been obsessing over low riders lately and I can’t think of a better looking one out there right now. I also love plays on stock paint jobs and Gary straight killed it on this one, looks like it could’ve rolled out the factory with that paint and the green frame ties it together just perfect. Rumor has it this ones for sale too, if I was the type of guy to buy already built bikes this one would sure be tempting! #emeraldeagle #fxlr #hanukkah

Happy Birthday to this fxrp riding fool @dangerdanimal! Getting to know Dan is without a doubt one of the best things motorcycles has given me, not many guys out there as genuine and selfless as this guy. Hope you’re having a good birthday my friend!

Deadline is almost here to submit for this years people’s champ competition put on by @show_class_mag. I’m still so honored to have been chosen last year as my foray into chopper building, as stressful as it got at times it was a ton of fun, I learned so much and it was a great challenge. Also got to make a bunch of friends along the way, the whole atmosphere was great between bouncing ideas off each other and the sharing of tips and tricks from everyone was just a great experience. Some truly amazing bikes got built last year by exceptionally talented guys, some even got the honor of being invited as builders this year. So if you’re planning a build now and don’t mind sacrificing everything else in your life for the next six months I encourage you to send in an entry and cross your fingers. ✌🏼
