2007 Harley Davidson Marine Corps Patriot Edition Streetglide

Sgt. Grit, wanted to send you a picture of my 2007 HARLEY DAVIDSON MARINE CORP. PATRIOT EDITION STREETGLIDE. I saw them advertising that would build one for you in late 2006. I sent in a copy of my DD 214 and then picked up my new Harley in early 2007. It has the Marine Corps. emblem on the tanks combined with the Harley. Also has a United States Flag on the rear fender. Just recieved my new USMC licence plate holder from your catalog and put it on. Looks great !! I joined the Marines in 1981, served active until 1985. Stayed in the reserves until 1989, then after 7 years of missing the comraderie I joined the US Navy “SEABEES”. I was called to duty at Ground Zero for 9-11 under Gov. Pataki in the NY Naval Militia. Was there for a few weeks providing security. My Battallion NMCB 27 is in IRAQ right now, couldn’t go with them. They took me down to an E-3, so i had to work my way back up the chain. I’m also a member of the “LEATHERNECKS” motorcycle club, and the “LEGIONRIDERS”. Keep those e-mails coming, it’s great to read the stories and quotes.

USMC Boat

USMC Boat

Hi,

I love your site and thought I’d share some pictures of my latest project. Since I got out of the corps I picked up model boat racing as a hobby. Last fall I started building a wood hydroplane from a set of plans I purchased. When I got done I thought of the perfect paint scheme that my fellow Marines would love. It’s made of 1/8th and 1/16th inch Birch plywood and it’s 48 inches long. It has a fully modified 26cc Zenoah water cooled weed whacker engine, rated at about 6hp. It can run about 60 mph in race trim. The finish is Fire Engine red stain with black and gold trim. Hope you guys like it.
