Do I even want to ask what that would cost... I do have a 5 speed trans here.
who do I call to check in on this?
Start hitting the swap meets . There are plenty of them for picking up these kinds of parts .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.
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 dining room is where all the great biker builds start .
