Your bike had a nice power band. I think the intake honk at full throttle was twice as loud as the exhaust! I won't be doing mine up until it's more worn out. I want to use up those stock pieces a bit, so I can justify a rebuild. I read a lot of good things about the Short Block Charlie's 'Scotsman' build. Close to 100/100 with a killer powerband, and total reliablity. You better get here one day and check out the cornfields. The Busa is the perfect Midwest hauler.

Yeah, they should have used the V-Rod, since it is also a metric cruiser...



Oh and the vidtory cruisers are define as being metric. Certain parts are metric. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I'll have to wait for the cornfields. It's 72 and sunny here today. Merry Christmas!

Default Hey, thanks for the kind words!





If you go to the book's website, you can download three sample pdf projects to see if you like them. You can also order the book via a link to Amazon. You'll save some money, and I'll get a slight kickback that makes up for the super low cost (and the low royalty I get as a result) that Amazon buys the book from MBI.

H-D performance parts? They're available at every Briggs and Stratton dealer.
