Try Firebreathing Industries in Santa Clarita. Their number is 661.367.7250. Talk to Drew. He has a Street Rod and knows what they want and his prices are fair.

For dyno tuning he charges a flat $200 regardless of how many runs it takes.

Come on Philthy, stick it to um, give him a long winded, highly technical and overly analytical post about why the R is so superior over the slowest and most feminine V-Rod built (A), how you had dinner with each of the R designers and how you were at the design offices and instrumental when they were prototyping it. Along with that your vast engineering experience and road racing prowess. Throw in some calculations and throw words like degrees, trail and ratios around. That'll shut his azz up.

Take it out of state where the air is cleaner and thinner so you can get a good tune.

Arguing about the R with either of you is like slapping a little girl around. There are things I won't do.

Vambo, are you telling me (us) Philthy had a hand in the design, I'll just bet he is responsible for my burned up pants legs and the breaking ground wires and the clunk.

Vambo is poking fun at me because I had a chance encounter with the guy who really did design the Street Rod and learned from him why some things on the Street Rod were done the way they were done. What I learned from him, and riding one, is what sold me on the bike.
But I haven't burned a trouser leg (ladies wear pants )nor have any ground wires broken.
