A friend of my [ a co-worker friend ] went out to California to visit his cousin, while on his yearly vacation. These pics are from 1999 or somewhere abouts that year zone. I recall him saying the engine is the main part of the frame design. Pa
I've long held the opinion that "because it can be done" overrules "because it's better to ride" in the custom builders' handbook.
I am sometimes asked to judge bikes at HDRCGB rallies, and whilst I don't ever pretend to have the skills and knowledge to produce something like that, they never get a look-in with me since they fail my basic test of a motorcycle; that it should be usable as everyday transport, or in the case of racers, for the purpose for which it was designed.
Same goes for OCC clones with a turning circle worse than a super-tanker.
It's just A stock Boss Hoss, isn't it? I had a friend that had one for quite a few years. It rode well and was actually pretty easy to handle. His had the 350 LT1 engine with a powermatic trans. It was a pretty good parade bike because it never overheated and gave everyone something to talk about. He always said his Ultra-Glide was more comfortable and finally sold it
pa They sell quite a few of them. I think I heard several hundred a year. They have a trike that is pretty high tech. There are enough that they have an owners group and a yearly rally. They have a model with an all aluminum 454 Chevy motor in it.
