1988 Softail...pretty standard..brought in from the US and I spent a fortune on it thinking I'd be keeping it.
This bike had been unused and stored for years.
It was purchased on a whim through a friend over there.

1) full new primary chain and tensioner
2) new battery,
3) two new tyres and tubes,
4) new clutch cable,
5) new alternator and regulator rectifier,
6) new handlebars and the wiring/switches plus all braided hosing,
7) new throttle cable
8) It now has an HS40 carburettor..pulls like a train..
9) gearbox rebuilt with new return spring, seals and gaskets
10) new steering head bearings and cups
11) fully serviced, MOTed and ready to ride once registered

I'm sure there's more I've forgotten..

Engine work by Edgar Gattrell.
Those who know him know how fastidious and trustworthy he is.
The rest was by Will Burrows who also has a very good reputation with Harley's
The gearbox and clutch are now also very smooth.
Given a bit of a free hand Will did go a bit overboard with the recommissioning.

The upside is that the bike is now in extraordinarily good order...and cost me more than it could have...I have a box full of parts Will replaced if you want them!
It came with a NOVA and a clean US title.

I have WhatsApp videos if you want to see and hear them ..

This is now pretty much a mechanically new bike and it's just sitting on an Optimate trickle charger gathering dust.

I may take a trade with cash for something lighter like an FXRS...or a good van.

UPDATE 30/08

I've have now sent off the application to register the bike prior to sale.
It will stay advertised on here until the DVLA do their bit, there's cash in my hand and it's been ridden off into a setting sun.

The bike speaks for itself and it's either for you or it's not.
This is an opportunity to buy a very fine motorcycle which should give years of reliable use.
You'll be hard pressed to find another which has had so much spent on it...Damn near £3.5k...
Sensible offers are welcomed, and viewing can be arranged by appointment.
You can send me a text message on the number listed in the ad.

I will only remove this advert once the bike has gone to its new home.

Talk to me, you never know...I'm up for a deal.
