And the story:I bought this bike off of ebay roughly 7 yrs.ago.It was a rolling basket case.Mileage was unknown.
The transmission leaked,the cylinder heads leaked,the enclosed chain drive and inner primary were trashed,it had a S&S B carb on it.
I rebuilt the transmission,found a nos inner primary and replaced the primary chain,final drive chain and sprockets.The carb was replaced with a S&S E.The bottom end of the engine was good so I had the heads rebuilt,replaced the pistons with cast .030 over's and a fresh rebore and hone.The cam was replaced with a Andrews A2 cam.New tires and brake pads.
It is no beauty queen but it is reliable now and will pull 100 mph.with ease.
The FLT is considered the Grandfather of all modern touring HD models.Many firsts for this year bike,such as rubber mounted engine and 5 spd.transmission.The FXR borrowed the frame for its platform.
