I don,t know. For me I can,t build enough of them. They are like moving living sculptures.
I fall in love with a certain silhouette and try to approach it. I recall how in 90s I fell in love with Swedish vs Kennedy’s long fork choppers, in early 2000,s- Walz from Germany. Had a huge impression on me with his drop seat softail “Destroyer”. At the time started madness with the fat rear tires I,m also guilty off. ( at this point I find anything beyond 200 as impractical and distasteful, although some examples are still impressive).


And then there was simplicity and monochromatic finish of the Exile cycles .

My final love became tiny Japanese style bobbers most known here via zero engineering.
I wonder , what,s next?

I have my FXR I want to stuff a Ultima 127 under and that is my cruiser (wife and I Ride this) I have a Rigid I have been using that is running a small 80, and would love to maybe replace with a 113 Ultima lol.

I would love to build a bike but would be a trike for the wife. I am really liking the Street 750, as a platform.





Wife cant keep her balance, and a member here sent me a Jacket I have taken care of she plans to use when she rides.

However this is one of her favorite bikes.

Dont get me wrong. Sometimes I think I like building them more than actually riding them. Just saying I would rather take older Softails and cut on them to make them what I want. The best part is they are already titled so there is no pains in the ass trying to get them titled. Right now I am wanting to build a little bobber from an old Softail.

That,s actually a great point. Rebuilding an existing bike with a title.

For what OP wants, The Crossbones would be the best bet. Has everything you already want. and you can modify as needed.

Yeah man, the HD Crossbones might be a good start and looks really good for a softail, if you wanted to go the TC route. I like a rear fender that site on the tire.

Paughco makes some really nice frames and springers. I've seen some nice Paughco frame on Ebay for $650.00.

As others have mentioned, the Ultima engine is a good deal. My buddy has a 113 assembled by SMW that has scary HP. Never a problem.

This is how I would run it, Solo seat, maybe shorter bars.

AND like the guys above said, you already have a VIN Number and Title.

Not bad looking bikes. + resail value is most likely is better than that of a full custom...

Thanks gents. I'm leaning toward the buy and modify tactic. Might be a Crossbones or it might be a custom but either way it seems the way to go.

How far can you modify a bike before the VIN & title are no longer good?
