We love us some FXR's around here! We met local rider Ace back in January at our annual parking lot sale and instantly fell in love with his bike. These machines are so rideable and contemporary-looking it's kinda hard to believe the design is well over thirty years old. Ace's is a great example with just enough mods to make it unique, but nothing too flashy or trendy.
