What's been done internally to the engine to make that kind of power?

If I were guessing, a K&N, exhaust, topless, and a happy dyno.

I think it's beautifully done, just the HP rating is a little optimistic based upon what's mentioned.

It is beautiful, and Starrrrz needs it, badly. She has lusted after it for years. That said, 90K is beyond insane. How in the world could you rack up a bill like that? All the parts listed, new, and installed at a dealer would not be half that! Trouble is, 2002 VRODS don't fetch much. Show winners, like this one, are an exception, but plan on losing a few bucks on the sale. I had the exact same engine mods, and I got 109hp on several dynos. Good luck on the sale. Me, I would keep it. It was a labor of love, and it shows. Ride the thing! Joe

Just to be clear the bike is a 2003 model year purchased new in 2002.

The total of $90k invested includes the initial acquisition of the bike, plus all of the parts and labor. The custom cut airplane style wheels, rotors and rear pulley from Performance Machine were over $15k by themselves. Every single rivet is hand painted on the bike - the paint job was $10k. It took many months of labor to build this bike - virtually everything is custom on it from a bodywork perspective. Time is money. Go to Harley and price out building an entire batwing fairing buying it in individual parts, plus handlebars and everything that goes with them.

Of course that doesn't include things like custom fenders with full hand made fillers, multiple parts sent out to be chromed and so on. It doesn't take long to rack up a number like $90k when building a one off bike like this. Especially when you consider the entire bike was re-wired front to back to match the wiring of a standard FLHT, so in the future if anybody works on it they can consult a shop manual for a bagger and not be lost in the dark.

The dyno time and tuning was done by Wayne Hanson from Speed's Performance Plus - no relation to me by the way. :)

I fully expect the bike to sell for much less than what I have spent on it, but as you can tell from the mileage it barely gets ridden. With 6 bikes in the garage it's time for this one to go to someone who will use it.

As far as an asking price is concerned I am willing to entertain offers in the $40k range.

Cheers,
Speed

Ok, I'm not trying to be mean or rude here, but my eyes got quite large just now seeing $40K. I know you said you invested $90K but that is quite a large sum of money there.

This guy here has not been able to get bids over $21K if I remember correctly and I think this is a great looking bike - plus it is an SE2.

Each to their own, but I personally think those VRod/Road Glide packages are ugly and poorly built. That's why I built a VRod bagger with a Street Glide look, which from an builders perspective is a totally different kettle of fish.

Regardless, I'm not here to argue with people about the merits of building, or selling such a bike. I spent $90k and I'm entertaining offers in the $40k range from the select group of people who are willing and able to pay that kind of money for a truly special one off liquid cooled Harley.

Cheers,
Speed
