    this bike started life as a 1993 FLHS. I tore it down to bare frame and started over. The engine is a 129 inch stroker. Tranny has a baker DD5 gear set.  Frame had to be modified for fit and strength. primary is a primo 3 inch for an FXR. The backing plate, and covers were chromed.  The fenders are home made, and those are real 59 cadillac tail light frenched into the rear. Pipes are also my own design and make. It took me a while to get  the mounts right. After starting on them I realized why there are no commercially available upswept pipes for bikes with rubber mounted engines....
    so far it has put a best of 161 hp out on the dyno. This year I have a bottle of giggle gas that says I should do a little better, The paint is sapphire candy pearl on the tank and fenders, and it is blue tinted chameleon on the frame and on the edges of the tank and fenders. I mixed PPG prismatique into the clear as well
