You can put a starter on it if you have clearance, if your clutch basket has a ring gear, if your cam cover has the notch out for the starter, if your trans sprocket cover has the starter notch. Its all bolt on stuff, just depends on how much you want to replace. Also you'll need more battery and you should probably keep the kicker on it for backup.

Mike ya just need to keep bein a "Puss" as you stated and maybe just by this mans trailer cause if ya cant get it started ya got to have some way to get it around.BAHAHAHHAH:D

Still love ya Mike and no pics of the damn tool bag what am I gonna have to do to get that photo drive to flordia and take it myself.........:)

Fix the kicker make sure its timed and learn to kick it with your left leg.Then when it hurts that one I got a friend in the wheelchair buisness and he can fix both of us up with a good deal on one......

Look close. Starter and solenoid fit fine on a rigid frame for an ironhead. And you can still kick if you want.

Not my trailer. It's the scumbag who sold me the bike. And just in case anyone was wondering that's my bike before I got a hold of it. Don't want to be held liable for the mess seen in that pic.

Nope, not yet. Just waiting for someone to make me an offer. Coming down to the last few weeks on building it too.
