Harley-Davidson Touring description

Vintage 1978 Harley Davidson Shovel head.  This Bike was taken down to the frame and all parts were removed and replaced or cleaned and adjusted. The engine was rebuilt. All work was done by a professional.  I have put less than a 1,000 miles since the work was completed.  The color of the bike is a striking red and black granite design gradually fading to total black.  The gas tanks are Fat Boy tanks, the wheels are Aluminum.  It is both electric and kick start.  The headlight was changed to LED, the bike was lowered 1 inch for a safer more comfortable ride.  The bike has a gel saddle, leather saddlebags, new HD low profile carburetor, new pipes and as many other improvements that I could think of.
When I turned 80 my doctor suggested getting rid of the motorcycle since it would be too dangerous for my condition.  When you pay for advice it is usually a good idea to take it.  This is great riding machine and is really comfortable ride.

Harley-Davidson Reveals “Twin-Cooled” Engine with Precision Liquid Cooling

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700

As we gleaned from recently revealed CARB documents, Harley-Davidson has introduced two new liquid cooled engines. The new engines use a combination of air-cooling and precision liquid cooling, similar to what BMW did with its 2013 R1200GS. One version of the engine, dubbed the Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103 will be used on the 2014 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited and the Tri-Glide Ultra trike while the CVO Limited will use a 110ci engine known as the Screamin’ Eagle Twin-Cooled Twin Cam 110.
