The seatpost is a modern KIT ( custom ) you will find in the V-Twin catalog . it has been créated for all softails .
it opérates with a hard and short spring inside ....on a travel of exactly 15 Millimeters :oops:
this kit is NO-Good for a rigid . but for a frame with shocks abs ; the résult becomes really comfortable .
TWO longs springs would have been more comfortable ....but the "look" is incorret for a harley.
anyway : this is the customer's choice . he WANTED this kit .

about the footshift : this is a common repop 45' footclutch changed into a footshift : remove all the hardware inside + the spring for let it opérating free ( some different thick washers needed ) add an ARM on the internal side . a linkage with two uni-balls . the small chromed arm on the gearbox axle is also from V-Twin : this is a part from a foreward pegs kit . the handclutch is the original 883 hugger , on the handlebars .
this modification really works perfectly !
and the left side look is perfect .

I SAY IT AGAIN : THE HANDSHIFT on the tank IS TOTALLY FAKE !!!!!! only here for déco !!!!

He looks like one happy owner. He needs to be holding a bottle of Bud instead of a glass of beer if he wants to commemorate Hollister. I'm sure he'll be happy with the scoot for many many years. You did a nice job on it Fran6

Quand au Nightster, au secours!!!


Which translates to;
Perso, I prefer the eccentrics or "special" hurdy-gurdies in erzatz. I like well your work on hurdy-gurdies, a lot of ideas in your achievements... On the contrary, this Evo, this wraps me in no way... The motor swears too much!!! Replace with an old Waffle Iron...

When in Nightster, in assistance!!!

So now the question is. What is a hurdy-gurdies?

that's a translation? what into? and people say MY french is peculiar.........
