XXXX Harley Davidson Custom Sportster Bobber/Chopper Titled XXXX HD Sportster XLCH

For sale is XXXX Harley Davidson. XXXX HD Sportster XL motor in Carolina Customs frame. Fast, loud and powerful. It's just sitting around in the garage collecting dust.

Built with as many OEM or made in U.S.A. parts. All original nuts, bolts, washers were replaced with U.S.A. grade steel parts. Cables, hoses also made in U.S.A. Cylinders were bored and now produce approximately XXXXcc. Shifts as it should threw all gears.

Always garaged. Fluids, oil and gas, are drained before every winter. Except the cases. Battery put on trickle. Fluids added again in the spring. Brakes tight, lights work (no turn signals).

There are some small paint chips (oil tank) and small specs from crap flying up from the road. tried to detail them in the photos but please ask if you need more specific ones. The chips on the oil tank were filled with sealer to prevent any continuing flaking or oxidation. There are also two small chips on the underside of the rear fork, near the batter try. The photos also show flake chip on the gas tank tab and the air cleaner does have some very very small specs from road debris too. Small flake chip on the clutch lever and small marks where the clutch lever clamp was adjusted.

There are lot of unique parts. Custom parts, hard to find things too. It was professionally painted by Gene at Big Fatys. The frame, handlebars, battery tray and sissy bar were powder coated two times. wanted it thick and glossy.

Rockers, chain cover, gear/crankcase cover bead blasted. Heads and jugs painted silver and black respectively with high heat and rust resistant paint. The pipes are custom made by Woodward Cycles with custom baffle (welded washer post) and can be seen in the photo. The bike is loud, really loud!

Compression is good and typically starts after the first or second kick with wick of the throttle, when daily rider. However when it has sat for more than months during year my routine for cold starting is to take the air cleaner off, clean the carb. Peg (literally with wood close pin or vise grips) the choke full open, small twist gas, kick. Repeat kick until engine fires. Let it run and warm up minutes. Push in choke. Wick throttle, idle, engine off. Let it cool. Put on air cleaner. Peg the choke, and kick once or twice and wick the throttle.

The identifiable issues are couple of small oil drips as tried to show in couple of photos. Probably chain or gear cover gasket needs replacing but not sure, as there is small drip on the drain plug too. It doesn't interfere with the operation of the bike but is nuisance and should be taken care of, its up to you.

Please send me any emails if you have any questions and will do my best to provide an answer. can also provide more photos upon request. Thank you for your time.
