Since Chassis Design is doing all the work to your bike then they'll have it down to a science when the rest of us jump on the band-wagon and buy sporty motors and 2 up frames!

There probably already is a discussion on the forum somewhere, but it would be interesting to hear the pro's and cons of sporty motors, what years to use, what hop ups are good & economical, etc. My first Hog was an 03 100th Annie 1200... loved that bike, last year before they went rubber mount... Now they are all fuel injected too right? These bitches would all look great with my special formula 2 into 1 pipes...
My neighbor has a 1200 nightster and the bike is fast and sounds great. He can keep up to me on my street bob. I like the idea of a single inexpensive unit (engine, tranny, primary) especially when building a budget bike. All us CFL builders can understand how expensive it can get when buying all the bits that go along with a conventional build. I got carried away with my CFL with the primary cover, six shooter risers, air cleaner etc.

I don't know much about which sporty engine is best but I can say the newer rubber mount engines have awesome machining and are very high quality. Just as good as the big twins as far as quality control. The mounting is a little funny and can look bad on a custom frame if not done right. The stupid mounts make the engine long, longer than a big twin when measuring from front of engine mount to back of tranny, if you can believe it. My frame is stretched a little to make the engine fit I think.

There will be rigid mount donor engines for a long time but the rubber mount is the way to go if you want something newer and cheap. Just bolt on and s&s E carb and a figure out the ignition and you are good to go.

Send me a 2-1 pipe and I will make you famous.

Got the #2 cam removed and sending it off to Vulcan for machining. Stock cams are "W" and do pretty well. I'm gonna keep the engine stock with stock cams and heads and see how it does. The bike will be light so it should be good.

Gonna have to ditch the belt final drive. Damn belt wouldn't fit 140T is the longest in 1" I probably need a 142-145T. Oh well I tried. Chain makes more sense anyway.
