Harley-Davidson Other description

 Hopefully the photos show how nice it is.  The frame is perfectly straight with any defects repaired, the motor mounts are perfect, however the left front motor mount has a .013 shim for a good safe fit.  The motor had lots of work:  the cases are correct 48, but different numbers and the mounts were fly cut to perfect,  new races and bearings installed and they were machined for 53 type hydraulic lifters.  Truett & Osborn wheels, trued and balanced, all new bearings, Torrington needle bearing pinion bushing replacement done as well as cam cover pinion bushing replaced and reamed to spec.. The cases then sealed and closed.  pistons and rings fitted .030 over, cylinders were perfect, no fin repairs.  Heads completely re-worked with new threads cut for intakes, new rockers, fitted and polished, Kibble White valve train, triple ground pockets, seals, guides etc..  Laminated pan gasket tops off the heads for a oil free seal.  Cam cover to case lapped to seal.  The cam is an AB grind Andrews designed for more duration on the exhaust, for a cooler running motor and more mid range.  I went with S&S pump for obvious reasons.  My original Jim's hydraulic lifters were recently changed back to solids,( Jim's don't work).  Lots of time and many dollars went into the motor and trans and I would drive it cross country without hesitation, it starts easy every time, hot or cold. Cycle Electric 12 volt supplies the power and Andrews coil supplies the GM points for dependable service. All the variations to the bike can be returned to stock without modifications.   I've tried to cover the important stuff, but I'm sure there were things I missed, so if you have any questions, please feel free.  The reason for selling is simply getting too old and stuff has to go.  The bike is also for sale locally and may be terminated if sale is made.
