What a beast you have there.  I recently rode a 110TC" Bourget chop that was a straight line white knuckle ride.  You are so very correct that 100+ft/lbs of torque really opens your eyes!

Yep, also sitting so low to the ground makes it feel faster than it is. This one makes over 100 lb/ft torque from 1500 rpm to the redline, peak at 145 lb/ft. Looking forward to riding it again after a two year wait.

Also hope to have a go on this Sportster I've had a small hand in (its not mine). Started out life as a early 90's XL883, but now has a 1250cc Hammer performance kit, flowed big valve head and lots of mods including revalved USD forks from a GSXR750, alloy oil tank in front of the motor, 17 inch alloy rimed wheels etc..

Wow!
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Its got a Hammer performance 1250cc kit, while the heads were flowed and given bigger valves .. cant recall the valve sizes.

Here's a before pic of the engine and new barrels, pistons etc..

Slight thread detour, since folks like the look of the XL Scrambler project, here's a vid I posted today of progress on its final assembly..

Back to the Merch131... The switchgear from Moto Gadget has been fitted, they make a few different options... black, polished alloy, standard or mini buttons.. I went with the polished / 3 mini button option (the bike only has 3 buttons on the bars for the horn, high beam and starter)  which at around 120 isn't cheap. But they do feel very well made, so hopefully worth it..

While the mini sub project to make a replica swing arm in billet alloy is making slow progress, with the front side plates and the cross pieces having been milled now..

And here's a short vid of how its coming together so far..
