weld

Man if thats the best you can find to wine about ,maybe you should buy a Harley. Then you can find a box to live in under a bridge because the parts guys will have all your green. Besides you can't see them when you riding anyway. JUST ENJOY:

I like them now that I figured out they are the only ones in the world that are worst than my welds.

But the difference is, Honda did it intentionally! LOL.

I read on a Fury review that they were in fact done that way to give it a home made look >> AKA Chopper.........:D

Are you guys serious they were done intentionally? Most bikes people want looking sleek, IE welds should just be at hard turns, and joining of tubes. I dont mind them that much, but if it was intentional that is the dumbest thing i have ever seen done

Thanks Bar, I was feeling pretty good about my gum drop welds and now you went and ruined my hole view on them. You really know who to kill a guy. I guess if anything else my weld job when completed with the Tony tail will look consistent with all other welds on the bike when I get done with it.

It makes it look more custom. No two are just alike.

Two weeks ago I talked with a Honda rep for an hour as we looked at my Fury. I thought i had an engine noise and didn't like the response i was getting from my dealer, so i asked for a Rep. And Yes the welds are intentionally ugly , the ugly ass welds below the down tube split (pictured below) looks as we cut something out for a mod. ALL the welds around whatever you call this(pictured below) as well as the slight misalignment of the horizontal tube. All these and more was to give it a homemade chopped chopper Look as a base bike for us Fury peoples to start with, authentic look as he called it. My exact Question to him was " Why did Honda got threw all the effort to make such a sleek, clean bike and leave these Crappy (not exact) welds for the world to see?"

LOL.... and you still bought the bike! Maybe next time they can find an even more home made concept and see if they make millions! Just think if it was you that came up with the fury concept. Those guys were simply on track with what is being asked for in the market place. :D

i ditto that.i could clean them up and you would never see them but i think that would take away from the bike.
Agreed... they add some flavor to the fire for you to talk smack to Harley riders... :rolleyes:

Sorry 'bout that Dave, didn't mean to hurt your feelings; just my apparently ineffective attempt at humor. My bad..........
