Hey hey boys! On to another build and this time want to build a performance touring bagger. What years of the road glide are the best base to start from? The motor, trans, everything will be swapped, so looking for the best "base" years that the after market supports the most...

Thanks boys!

IIRC, the >09 have an improved frame design.
M8's are easier to build power with, but the transmissions are weak.

The pre Rushmore bikes have better forks and trees.

Past that, your break up of the years makes no sense. You should probably tell us what a Performance touring bagger is, as you understand it.
