The motor has a fresh rebuild with new cylinders, heads, pistons, rings, bearings and seals. The ignition is factory circuit breaker with new points and condenser. A custom intake manifold was made for a Mikuni style carburetor and runs great! The front forks are very custom as the Softail lowers were shortened for an otherwise impossible low stance.

The wheels, tires are new 16 x 5.00. Handlebars are handcrafted and use an internal throttle.Speedmill Customs has been fabricating cycle frames and components for over 2 decades.
