Okay here's my problem i'm 6'11" tall and tip the scales at 375 lbs. Now I love harleys and I like trumps but I don't know which bike or powerplant would be best to handle my size and weight. I've already figured I'm going to have to stretch the frame to fit my legs comfortably. But I love the old iron and want to build my scoot and I would just like some suggestions on what you all think would be the best choice for me. Other than everybody here on the jj I don't have any body thats into bikes to help me choose and all the bike shops here want to do is sell me a brand new bike which I don't want cause I like things I have to tinker with. Thank you for your help and advice.:cool:

i think you should go with a harley with a big frame and is much power as you can put in it seems like it would suit you better but it is really your choice in the end

Sounds like you need a custom built one. Older bikes?, well, you can choose, by the cost on the motor, and stock, or aftermarket. You can get a aftermarket huge inch shovel motor for the big bucks, but then, you did not specify a amount. Maybe a custom built frame, shovel motor, and a 5 speed transmission. Which is only getting you started. Finding something for your height, will be a long term search. Not may 6'11" guys out there riding. And, usually when you see them, they look like your dad, on a minibike. Not sure if you want to build one, but that looks like the only way you will get one that will fit YOUR frame. Not to mention, you could find a shovel motor, and have it stroked mildly for more power, and have a more original bike, but with a longer frame.
