What is it in need of? Is it a runner?

I'll do a fuel system flush on it and maybe swap that giant bucket lid of an aircleaner out for something different. 
It needs an exhaust, I'm thinking 2-1 with a meg cone.
The rear brake is locked up, flush and clean a both brakes.
I needs tires, some new riser dampers. 
I just happen to have a new EarthX battery from Sparck for it. 

It needs a seat or two for options.  My wife wants to be able to ride this one.

So my guy at the HD shop hooked me up yesterday.  I wasn't looking but I've wanted one for quite awhile.  This came up as a buddy to buddy deal so there was no way I was going to pass on it.  1986 Harley Davidson FXR Lowrider.   I'll sort it out over the next few months into a rider.
It looks like you derailed your own thread, so I have a question about the Harley. Why do many Harleys and maybe other cruisers have a negative angle on the swingarm? Does it work ok? It just seems wrong. I set my bikes up with about 10 degrees or so of drop on the swingarme from the pivot to the rear axle, with the suspension unloaded. If that was my bike, the first thing I would be doing is fitting longer rear shocks to get the SA angle where I am used to it being. Am I wrong in my thinking?

Skydiving, the biggest rush I ever had. Leapt out of a perfectly decent plane somewhere over Australia. Everyone needs to do that at least once. ....

Yes, I agree!

Absolutely.  I did at DeLand near Daytona one year when we were down there with Team Obsolete.

Yep, most threads get derailed from time to time but it's temporary.  I'm pretty excited about the new2me FXR and you can see the YZF behind it so it's not cheating.   :)  It needs a fair bit of sorting, and a list of stuff I'm going to need to source.  I might put up a different thread.

As for the swingarm angle, it might be the angle in the picture, I'm not 100% sure what you are asking.  I haven't measured the shocks yet.  They might be and inch or more shorter than stock but they are nice Progressives.

DeLand is supposed to be a pretty cool Dropzone. 

I've mostly jumped in New Mexico and road trips to Skydive Arizona in Eloy.   Some in Texas and even over in Le Luc, near Nice in France. 

Twin Otters FTW!
