    Hi guys! New here. I live in Windsor, Ontario. I've been on 2,and 4 wheels all my life. I'm thinking about starting a collection of noteworthy bikes. I found a deal on a nice 97 Blackbird about 1.5 weeks ago. I really like the looks and who doesn't like the fact that it was the fastest...

    I recently lowered the rear 1" and am wondering if I can simply loosen the front and lower it also to compensate for handling?
