From previous owner :

Less than 200 miles since work done. Complete top end rebuild, carbs rebuilt, new fork seals, new rear shocks, has lowering kit, new air filters, upgraded/ new regulator.

Croker style stop light, solid handlebar bushings, coker tires, new chain, KTM front master cylinder, new stainless steel braided brake lines. Gas tank is from a Benelli Mojave.

The motor runs really well, easy starter, and carbs are in great condition. This was not a frame up restoration but I powdercoated some frame parts and replaced almost all grommets on the motorcycle. 


The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
