Here's my B model. Started out aluminum and I really wasn't feeling the aluminum with black frame so I had her painted satin black along with cutting the swingarm for the 240 rear reactor wheel and front to match. Brembo rear brake, Toxic Big Rig exhaust, Sundowner seat, Arlen Ness Bob Dron front fairing, 7" Fatboy headlight, drag bars with a slight pull back (wire ran inside bars). I just recently painted the stock mirrors and installed them upside down... looks killer and can now see what's behind me!

Okay folks, I'll join the show n' tell...

Started with...
1318cc BB (Zippers 'Hot Rod' Kit, yes with shitty Wiseco 4.25 Pistons, lesson learnt!)
Zippers CNC Ported Heads (+1mm o/valves)
500/460 Jones Cams
58mm Throttle Bodies
SE Race Tuner
Thunder Header 2:1 Exhaust
MC Brake Rotors & Calipers
Custom Mid Controls
Pingel Electric Shifter
Lowered on Works Suspension
Custom Chrome Wheel Set (28T, Metzeler 200 rear)
Shortened Drag bars
Lowered Seat (1")

Engine and Transmission is being rebuilt courtesy of Ohio guru Scott from Fitzgerald Motorsport.

New CP Pistons
ARP Case & Head (10mm)Bolts
FM Engine Brace
Pinned Bearings
Straight-cut 2nd Gear (1.8 ratio)
Billet Shifter Shaft
Upgraded Shifter Forks (I broke 4/5th)
New Drum

I've seriously considered changing to a Daytona Twin Tech in replace of the HD Screaming Eagle Race Tuner, for the most part because Dyno time here in NZ is expensive ($120hr, quoted 1.5days!) with dare I say it thin experience tuning a big bore V-Rod.

In debate with myself over keeping it a 1318, with the factory crank as I like my motors to rev and at 8,900 Tilleys Dyno returned a max power at 146.5, torque at 96.0 - but hey, we all know about variances in Dyno's, and from what I've read here a '1320' was only good for 135-140hp. I'd be happier if it redlined at 10,000rpm but then thats my 500cc 2-stroke crotch rocket days egging me on.

Could well end up throwing a 1/4 rewelded crank, a set of K1 Rods and new 5.7 Elvis Injectors at it, to increase the grin factor when the bike's back in one piece. Seems almost criminal not to stroke it (despite slight concern on additional piston wear due to rod angle and increased piston speed. I wasn't in the position to do the rebuild in the first place ($$!) but can ill afford to do the motor again - hence Fitzgerald Motorsport has been requested for the job.

Dafoq?!?!? With that quote you can almost buy your own dyno for God's sake....

I sure do wish I was first owner of my B. I'd have taken better care of it.
I'll have to take some pics when I get home, polished it up best I can without actually removing or replacing covers last night.

only "mods" I have,

- "mid sport" (I'm guessing) windscreen (came with it)
- kury iso grips
- topless, amsoil air filter
- DDM tuning HID hi and lo beam (and required "RJ" mod)
- SE 26 gauge pipes (came with it.)
- sundowner seat (came with it)

I don't want to put too much $$ in to it. I want to set aside some $$$ for a Road Glide for the really long 2-up trips.
