78 FXE Superglide 300mm tire ProStreet

I started on this bike last fall and finished it in June of this year, the bike was a mostly stock 74ci, 9.2 pistons, siftin 109 cam, primo belt primary, engine was rebuilt a few years ago with very few miles on it so i just cleaned it up, put a 40mm Edelbrock carb with a stack, LAF pipes, i did build a set of drags for it later on, i think i like the LAFs better, the first thing you will notice is the chain is no longer on the left, i didnt want to do an offset primary of offset the engine so i built a jackshaft swing arm and modded the back haft of the frame to fit the 300mm tire, made all the mounts myself, i am able to move the swing arm back to tighten the front chain, the jackshaft runs through the piovit point of the swing arm, i wanted the bike to look as stock as being a swing arm bike that had been tubbed, spoke wheels, the trees have 6degs in them, front end is 2" over , i had a real problem with finding rear shock that would work, i found some HD fox gas that work great, but i also took the stock shocks and made them into ridged shocks when i go for short rides,the paint is a satin black i did myself, first time paintin a bike, i added some vinel strips but the CF material i was using did not lay doun well so i went with some different material, i think i like it better all black, everything worked great after i got it back togeither, it runs great and sounds great, i took a lot of shit for cutting up a stock bike, but i had a vision and it was after all my bike so this is what i ended up with, i will put my photobucket link of the build at the bottom of my post, check it out and let me know what you think, good, bad or indifferent, its all good to me.

Danny, glad you took the advise to drop in here. You'll fit in better here. We've got our share of pricks too but it's a more diverse crowd.

Thanks man, it started out as a 78 FXE, i know the swingarm mount looks like an FXR but i had to make it that way to mount the swingarm i was using, yea the JJ gave me a lot of shit but i was just on a site that no one thinks outside the box, it a great site for that one kinda bike but as you can see mine aint that kinda bike, thats where i heard about this site and i was asked to leave with my big tire bike and never come back, its all good, thanks for the props. Sulley
