Has anyone done this? I'm just playing around with it in my head. Starting to think maybe I can piece one together... Any sage advice, wisdom or insight would be helpful.
Without a doubt the most expensive, slow, frustrating way to build a bike. Your best bet is to buy a compete bike, even if it isn't running and modify, fix and repair as necessary. You'll be money ahead, and it will be finished sooner. I just purchased a 75 FX in good shape with a new Jims 5 speed off Craigslist for cheaper than than you can imagine. The deals are out there. Cash is King. If you don't have the money, save up and you'll find a deal when the time is right.Has anyone done this? I'm just playing around with it in my head.

Okay, now that we flogged the subject, now you tell us! If you're not worried about OEM, bang for the buck (and good quality, from buddies experience) I'd start with an Ultima case, saw one on the auction site $699.00 with free shipping and of course with an MSO. Takes all stock or Aftermarket H. D. parts. And its a cone shovel. Much cheaper than a Genny shovel to build.I have a roller, just looking at the engine in particular. Thanks.
