This bike has been sitting since new. My friend has been dealing with liver and other types of cancer, he asked me to help him sell this before Christmas so I ended up paying him cash but much less than he wanted.

I am clueless about Harleys and especially custom choppers. From what I can gather this had a much more hardcore engine, and my friend Ozzie blew the motor during the first tank of gas. He got the motor replaced with a milder 103, and during break in of that he was working out of town so it sat for weeks at a time, and when he went to ride it it was leaking so he made an assumption for some reason that it needed a new motor, so it sat.

I bought a new $200 lithium battery, put a new fuel hose on it, drained the old gas, put new gas in and drained that, and it started. It likes to be warmed up before the choke is opened up, but it runs great. I ran it down my private road and I can say it runs way stronger than the FXDX I had years ago.

This thing has a ton of trick billeted parts such as the matching gas caps and turn signals, the paint was done my Mike Taylor that did a lot of Simms custom work, it has beautiful burgundy ghosted flames, and a seat that has stitched flames. The wheels are upwards of $2000, and the tires reflect that the bike has about 200 miles on it.

I have a clean title, last registered in 2014...this seems like it will be a very good buy for somebody. I'm a couple of miles away from Poor Reds out Union Mine Rd. I reduced the price to $8500, this is a lot of money for me to have sitting, so it needs to go.
