You going to tech me on this one as I am lost...... all the damn model name and different set ups with no clear answers.


I did find this kit but it is used so who knows what shape it's in.

Pick up a TC88B then have someone put this kit in it

They're $5600 or so .

The way to do it , is pick up someones liftout with all the ancillaries . Ideally a 103 . Excellent engine to start with .

Build it, IF you're going to actually ride it. Otherwise sell it.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

well have to build it first to see if I will. I enjoy a good challenge even when it may not make sense....

Looking for a few bits one being the dash cover that fills the top of the gas tank.

Start hitting the swap meets . There are plenty of them for picking up these kinds of parts .

If it were an Evo Softail, I'd say ditch it - I hate Evo Softails, but TC88B engines are very smooth and can be a nice ride, just don't expect to be tearing up the twisties with it.

If it were me, I'd write up a build list of what's left and if you can get the parts and an engine with low miles for under $8k or so, all said and done, I'd go for it.

That's a non-balanced engine, and it's huge. That's going to be like having a jackhammer attached to your balls on that frame. Softails are rigid mount bikes, so there's nothing to absorb the vibration like on a Dyna or Touring frame, as a result, anything above 50mph or so and your filings will be falling out. Evo Softails are essentially bar hoppers IMO. I love the Evo powerplant when rubber mounted and I love Softails when they have balanced engines, but without either, the ride really sucks.

The garage is to dam cold and has the KZ on the lift.... I am lucky to have a very understanding wife, along with a very good set of earplugs.
