This is a one-of-a-kind custom built Harley trike. I have won first place in every show it has been entered in.  It is titled as a 1988 reconstructed Harley Davidson (clean title-NOT salvage).  This bike was started back in the early 1990's using a 80 cu. in. Evo engine from a 1988 FLHT.  Mileage on the engine is unknown but the engine was only around 2 years old when this project started.  The story as told to me was before the build was complete the builder's 2 teenage sons committed suicide within 6 months of each other.  He covered the unfinished bike and it sat in his garage for the next 30 years.  He wakes up one morning and realizes he is 80 years old and is never going to complete the bike.  When I purchased the incomplete bike it was not running.  I replaced the rotten handle grips, the rotten fuel lines, installed a new electronic ignition, new coil and she fired right up.  Installed new front wheel with classic front tire and front disk brake with Performance Machine caliper.  On the rear I used new spoke wheels for a 1956 Thunderbird with new Dunlop tires.  Fabricated rear fenders, installed tail and brake lights, replaced rusty nuts and bolts with chrome and fabricated exhaust pipe tips to direct exhaust away from frame.  Powder coating on forks, frame and rear end is over 30 years old but looks brand new.  Has S&S Carb, adjusted and bike tuned so it runs like new.  The bike is built on a very cool softail frame.  The best part of the build is the rear-end (differential).  It is an engineering work of art.  This is the part of the bike that draws the most attention at the shows.  Mostly old Harley guys know what it is but the general public cannot believe it is a Harley-Davidson rear-end.  It is out of a 1956 Harley-Davidson Servi-car.  Larger axles were installed to handle the additional horsepower of the Evo engine.  The housing was cut larger inside to allow for a bigger sprocket and the whole thing was flipped upside down because the chain on the 45 cu in Servi-car engine was on the right side and the chain for the Evo engine is on the left.  The drum brakes were removed and disk brakes were added with Performance Machine calipers.  Finally, to complete the "old school" look, I installed panhead style rocker covers.

It is truly a one-of-a-kind 30 year old, new time machine, and a proven show winner.  This bike is list as "used" but it was not titled until June 25, 2024.  It was never driven on the street before that.  I can deliver the bike a reasonable distance from Tucson, AZ.  We can discuss at end of action.

$500 due at end of action by Paypal.  The balance due within 7 days of end of action via Digital payment, cashiers check or cash.
