It is pretty light compared to a stocker, I am not sure though. I think I dropped about 200 lbs off her.

As far as what happened, lets just say it was a series of things that came together all at one time..........the wrong time!!!!!

Ran down to the harley dealer and picked up a 9 dollar circut breaker.............WE GOT POWER!!!!!! 8)

Neutral light and oil light shining bright.

Have to measure each day with small victories. :D

Since I have the bike torn down I am thinkin on having the 1000RR swinger machined a bit and slapping that rear end on. Just gotta eye up the chain run and see if we are in the park.

I am probably gettin a little ahead of myself. I will feel much better once I can fire it and be sure it is runnin ok.

mmmmmmmmmm 1000RR goodness!!! 8)

i vote for custom tank. a very shallow short tank. so the bike remains looking flatlined.
i like how low and flat and long it is.
