We've got a variety of engine types this month, here we go:
Heres mine. 07 Wide Glide.
Ill give this a shot, Im not real computer savvy. There should be attachments. Sorry for the quality but Its cold and I just finished the suspension. Take a look, shes a 2007 rkc lowered with progressives front and rear, 21 inch front wheel with wide whites, sixteen inch apes internally wired with stainless cables. All the extra bs like crash bars have been removed. Andrews 26G cams with a pc5 and open air filter. She may not be much but she is mine!!!
Eng size: 80ci
Transmission(5sp, 6sp etc):4 spd
Seat:Heathers Leathers, original Replacement
Accessories: front and rear bumpers, green auxiliary lights from 1950
And the story:
This was my Grandfathers Bike. He bought it in 1957. I remember it sitting in the basement at his house since i was a kid but never heard it run. It has 8314 original miles. I refinished it using all of the original parts except the seat and pipes and tires. The Original Seat was all dried and I didn't want it to crack and bust open so we replaced it and I put the original one away. I cleaned the original bags and re used them. Someone had added some home made dual exhaust and it looked bad so we replaced them with the chrome original style exhaust. We had some of the original re chromed but most were just cleaned up. We refurbished the motor with new seals and gaskets and we had to add a new crank and rods. It still has the original style 6 volt battery and lights, Kick Start, Foot Clutch and Dead Man's Throttle. I did decide to go with the Dunlop tires since I planned on riding it. Now it rides and runs like a new one. I smile like a Possum every time I ride it.
1949 FL. Original motor, 4-speed trans & frame. Little cam, Wiseco 9 1/2:1 pistons, Harley oil tank, Paughco 6" over springer, chrome spoke wheels 16 & 21" (regulation chopper size), Avon Speedmasters 5:00x16 & 3:00x21, custom solo seat covered in a Bates type pattern, paint is a dark charcoal with a little flake to pick up the light. Original rear drum brake, no front brake (also regulation chopper), High/Lo drag pipes. Accessories? I dunno....a kick starter?
Not much of a story, the guy I got it from busted his ankle and couldn't start it anymore. It had been neglected and needed a little love. The head gaskets leaked like a stuck pig, clutch way out of adjustment, timing was out of whack, chain was loose, risers were installed all wrong. All better now, I'd ride it anywhere.
