Hardcore II Frame
Custom ceramic coated exhaust
3 1/2" open primary with tribal outer bearing support

Not a bad looking bike. As long as t's solidly built, runs and rides well and you like it.

Try to get the wiring schematics- perhaps the most difficult issue to trouble shoot , when custom wiring is frame hidden and done by somebody else...
Good luck.

I've got a hardcore 11 frame with a 113 ultima and love it. Not sure about the seat setup. The front end looks good..right price it would be a great bike

Looks nicely done, however, check your state laws. It looks like the bike has no turn signals, speedometer, or front fender...could need a horn and maybe a second mirror. If this is your first custom bike check how the bike is titled then call your insurance company to see if they'll insure it.

You can run into all kinds of stuff when registering a custom. Here in CT all of the above, except for the fender, failed my '72 Ironhead chop. They also wanted a high beam indicator and failed my exhaust, even though they were stock pipes from that year sportster. Inspectors said "too loud". I ended up having to register via a friend in a neighboring state.

Great points..I considered this when looking it, figuring I would have to add a few things to satisfy the state/ins co.
Thanks for your comments

Changing a tire on powder coated rims can be a nightmare..I f you ever have to do it make sure you use the cable ties method, you can find videos on you tube..even a rubber coated tire tool will screw them up with out them..
