They’re great

here’s the story of me and my bike. I a brand-new Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 in and it was a good bike under 65 but I spent most of my time on it on the commuting to and from work at 75 mph, and the vibration was terrible. I 43,000 miles on it, and every I wished I had spent double the and bought the Super Glide.

Eventually, I needed cash and the Sportster on eBay for $4,025 and a Suzuki GS650G (which was a motorcycle) for $1,400.

A few years I wanted another Harley and on a Super Glide. It was the beginning of the Recession in 2009, and people giving things away to try and their houses. I had my eye on a Shovelhead which is one of the coolest looking I’ve ever seen, and I lowballing the owner via email, but got no

The Harley-Davidson Evolution Engine is than the shovel in every so I decided to look for an Evo FXR, and I one for sale on eBay with a brief description. 1991 Super Glide. Runs and some very small and pictures, which you can see below.

So on the pictures, it’s very but the guy says it runs great. If you closely, you’ll see that the is dirty, and there’s no shifter on the gearshift lever, as if the bike covered with a blanket for 7 and the owner’s wife backed the car it and broke the shifter knob off and the transmission. I didn’t notice all things and won the auction, bidding at the minute, for the price of $5,000.

After winning the auction, I the owner and asked when I pick it up. He asked me to bring gas. I said, But you said it great in the description.

He said, It ran last time I rode it, but the gas is empty. When was the last you rode it? I don’t really Try. 2001.

So the bike had parked for 8 years, and he lied in the But it was still a good deal if I get the bike working, so I went to it up. When we put gas in it, it leaked out through the tube on the tank, which had away.

I replaced that, and we tried to start it, but the battery was I bought a new battery and came the next day, and we got it started. I the guy $4800 for the bike, negotiating in for the inconvenience of having to buy a battery and get it and I rode it home. On the ride I realized it didn’t want to into gears 3, 4 or 5. I could get it first and second.

Too late to bargain now. I it.

I proceeded to not panic and go about the fluids and cleaning the carb. I maybe if I made some and did some tuning up, the gearbox work properly. It ran great, but no 3rd, 4th and 5th gear. I took it to Cycle. and they fixed it in a day for $300. The shift fork and a big were bent, and they got it right.

I was thrilled. I was afraid I have to spend a lot more on a new I go to Lawndale Cycle for parts and now, and I highly recommend if you live in the Los Angeles area and are for someone to work on your

On my first real ride, I that the Harley-Davidson FXR Super really is a great real-world It handles great for a big bike, and the is completely damped when on the freeway. With the big windshield and riding position, I could this bike all day.

It is twice as good as my 1996 Sportster, though the new Sportsters rubber-mounted engines and weigh as much as my FXR. I haven’t one yet, so I don’t know how they are. Below is a of me going around a corner on It corners nicely for such a big Harley made a version of bike called the FXRS they advertised as a sporty big for the canyons.

The FXRS was the same as the Low but 3/4 inch higher, and it had an extra brake on the front wheel and handlebars.

Below is a video I on a ride in the Santa Monica You can see that my Harley-Davidson FXLR can at a brisk pace on a twisty If you want to know how I made the mount, I tell you at the end of the video.

It’s cheap and easy to and it works well.

Origin of the FXR

What does FXR stand

F = the 80-cid engine and 5 speed box from the Big Twins:

X = the one-piece tank, lighter front and wheel and small headlight the Sportster thus the XL front

R = for the new frame and a version of the isolation-mounting pioneered by the FLT. Thus the engine mounts.

The creation of the FXR is a tale of the triumph of the engineering over the marketing department. Buell was on the design team, and insisted upon making a which would be comfortable to long distances, and would be able to go around a corner flexing.

The mission was accomplished, and the proved to be virtually indestructible, the marketing department kept to lower it and generally limit its to make it prettier for motorcycle In 1995 the FXR was replaced with the frame, which was welded by instead of people, and lacked the and performance of the FXR frame, though it was hiding the frame, showing off the and giving the bike more of a look. Upon seeing my people have told me the best motorcycle Harley-Davidson made.

Here’s a movie of a ride I in Los Angeles rush hour It’s a big bike, but the center of is low, it’s reasonably and the riding position is comfortable, so a good urban assault and is easy to split lanes on.
