What can I say. the bike has now been sold twice. Unfortunately the last buyer was unable to complete due to the fact that he died on the morning of collection. R. I. P Steve (maxbiker).
12 months MOT and Tax from the beginning of October. Only advisory was a front wheel bearing which will be renewed.
Completed a round trip of 300 miles on Monday to deliver the bike and it didn't miss a beat. kept a steady 80 on the motorway with more zoom when needed and my arse was only slightly sore which isn't bad considering I only had fuel stops.
Due to health reasons and an amputation in December. I will be unable to ride a bike in the foreseeable future. I have owned this beauty for several years after owning several others plus British and Jap. vowed never to sell as this was the one. didn't think that my health would be the reason but I can't leave her unloved.
This Harley is not your usual overdressed "born to ride" tarts handbag!
It is a Mean 'n Moody Electraglide sport bagger with that West Coast led sled look. It has been customised with the motor staying in standard form apart from the Mikuni carb as not everyone likes flames and suicide shifters or the threat of exploding metal for the sake of a few more ponies.
Great bike for laid back cruising and putting the wind up Audi drivers. Yes you can buy an early high mile Electraglide or FXR for less and then spend another £2000 to give it the same look as mine or spend a bit more and get an early FATBOY but thats a bit of a cliche for weekend warriors and they look a bit stodgy and "old hat next to mine". must admit I had longed for a FATBOY but that soon went out the window.
It has a few scabs on the frame (superficial) and chrome lifting on the nearside rocker covers which only show if you look under the tank. The panniers have a small lifting of paint around the lids (see pic).
Please come and view before putting an offer in.
Matching frame and engine numbers for this rare beast.
Brand new Continental whitewalls (still with protective surface).
New heavy duty high amp cold crank gel battery.
Supertrapp exhaust with removeable baffles. sounds the biz and passes MOT whilst still making the earth shake!
This bike is a pleasure to ride and sounds awesome.
Cool reg number if you are into the Thunderbirds!

I will shed a tear when she goes and would rather not sell locally. would rather not sell. as I don't want to be reminded of what I once had. My Wife is preparing herself for months of my sulking and wailing. My Cousin is desperate to buy as he thinks its the "mutts nuts" and hasn't seen another to match it but he can't raise the funds and won't give me a buy back option on a lesser amount. git! This bike always turns heads and stands out from the crowd. Not advertised anywhere else. here to sell!
