For sale , to a good home please . . .

I've never needed to go inside the motor but from what I know about it it is a 93" stroker with S&S internal stuff . '56 cases & 66 shovel heads .

It has a super E S&S carb and it pulls like you're coming out of a cannon . The stroke gives it hard starts off the curb and wheelies all day but with the gearing at 26 / 51 it cruises 80 + all day with a lot of twist left on the throttle . This bike is fast and quick . . . in short it hauls a lot of ass .

The whole rest of the bike is made up from custom & home made one off parts as follows . . .

Home made struts from Bung King kit with a Yamaha front fender as a rear . Home made fender brackets as well , drilled for speed and horse power .

Super Sixties seat cover , that matches the all white rubber treatment to show everyone that you have lots of class , and that you are a gentleman . The seat has a custom mount that was hand crafted , chromed and nibbled on for a perfect fit . 3" seat springs for the cushion & pushin .

Super trick 4" over wide glide with with matching bells , and tricked out sportster front drum brake , laced by Buchanan's to a 21 " HD rim .

The fork legs are extra extra custom , shaved down by the world renowned Chopper Dave . Brake anchor also added by Dave to stop this beast up front .

Evil yellow Aris rectangle headlamp with 100 watt halogen bulb upgrade , cuts through the night like a light sabre . It is actually very bright on the road .

Custom Z-bars , very narrow and mean looking . Makes you grimace at old women and young tough guys . Risers are new style springer / softail risers for that old time look but a modern performance .

Full custom exhaust , mostly home made parts here , with vintage cocktail shaker " mufflers " . Don't kid yourself , it's loud . I made lots of the bends and joints , and there are some super top secret Pep Boys ripple bends in there for good taste . Dipped in chrome to perfection , really pisses off the pipe wrap crowd .

Mid controls are home made also and come off the rear floorboard mounts . I made these out of a set of passenger peg mounts that came off the rear trans mount . . . cut em up & heated & welded then chromed according to the doctrine of ye olden days . They aren't super high mids so they are easy to manage and make the bike feel very aggressive and in control . I'm 6'-3" and they are very comfortable for me .

Controls are FL style & cut up & chromed to include fancy white rubber pegs , just one more subtle custom touch that most people will never notice , but will make you feel like a king amongst men .

Frame is a 1949 wishbone and is very straight , still has sidecar loops but no tool box mount , fat bob mounts and rear stand stuff . . . Can't win 'em all .

1" open belt with a dash of chrome sprinkled on the clutch parts .

Homer made key switch mount , could have bought one , but I made one instead . . . go figure .

Mallory billet electronic ignition , flawless performance at all times .

Custom sidemount plate ( 1956 YOM ) bike is registered HD / 1956 , with a vintage bullet tailight / brakelight dual filament deal . LED bulb which is super bright to keep bumpers out of your ass .

4 speed HD 1965 trans with hand shifter . Even that was massaged to perfection , trimmed down 2 inches , reshaped and the chromed to hide that anything had even been done at all . The stock length hand shifter hits you in the back of the thigh when you come to a stop and put your foot down . . . not this one baby .

The gas tank . . . I keep forgetting who painted it because I got it in a trade . It's an old Wassel tank with fancy leaky brass petcocks . Amazing deep blue metalflake paint job over solid creme white that explodes in the sun light . It's mounted tight and solid and makes girls at the bust stop smile at you , or at least they smile at me . You're smiles may vary .

The bike is a quick starter , 2 or 3 kicks every time . It's never left me stranded except for me running out of gas because I was wind jammin and rolling down the long miles .

$15,000 or as close as you can get to it .

Is your back not hackin' it anymore? That bike has come so far since you bought it, I hope to see it before someone snatches it up.
