Talking 99 FLSTC Custom paint/stretched tanks

My bike is on cycletrader. It is a 99 FLSTC with streched tanks, custom paint and airbrush work, hardbags, meticulously maintained. I have it listed at a fair price ($13,500) and I 'm not getting any calls. I also tried ebay but I kept my reserve at $12,500 and it didn't sell. I need some feedback. Tell me that Harley folks aren't afraid of the mileage? My new Road King custom is due in 2 weeks and I gotta get this sold. Any ideas?

My advice is to send me pics and sell it to me

Coincidentally....I'll be in Orlando next week for a couple days.

Tom - I don't know what happened to the cycletrader ad. Good catch, thanks.

Mongo - How do I send you pics - what's you're email address or is there a way I can attach them here for feedback?

I'll bet part of the problem is that it is an Evo motor.

I paid $13,500 for my 2001 FLSTC twin-cam with less than 20,000 miles on it that was in absolutely mint condition(the original owner is fanatical about his bikes) & had all the stage one parts already installed.

I will have to respectfully disagree with that....Evo's are every bit as dependable as a Twin Cam.....trust me on that one There as many Evo's on the road right now as Twin Cam's (probably more)....and they are still running strong with many, many thousands of miles on them. I would not be afraid to buy a bike with an Evo if I knew it had been properly maintained, and not abused.

And don't forget, most of the EVO's get better mileage and run cooler as well.

I am not saying the Evo is not dependable, I know they are. The Evo is not made anymore however, so it will become obsolete far sooner than the current twin-cam(a lot of people think it's obsolete now).

I don't have anything against Evo's, I owned a couple but the twin-cam is certainly a better motor in a lot of ways(it is relatively simple to get 100hp out of a twin-cam for example)

Well....don't tell my best friend his Shovelhead is "obsolete"...lol...he loves blowing away Twin Cams (including mine ) on a daily basis...his "stroked" Shovel is one of the strongest, and most dependable motors I've ever seen. If a person can do his own wrenching....you can rebuild them forever.

I won't argue with that, this is what I rode for over 20 years before buying a twin-cam:

That bike was a 110" stroker by the way(5" stroke,3 13/16 bore)

I built it from scratch in my family room(I have an understanding wife). She did make me remove the flywheel trueing stand from the marble coffee table however......

I have no clue if the photo attached... I am obviously not a wizard at this stuff. I don't know how to add additional photos because I have a bunch of close ups of the art work. The theme is from the Grave Digger monster truck - my personal favorite.

Evo's are incredibly reliable, I guess you can tell I'm a die hard evo person because of my user ID (which is also my license plate). I know, I know, why am I getting a twin cam. The truth is that for traveling long distances, that new motor is smooth..... and I'm getting a little older........so the vibration is a little less attractive for the long haul. I must be getting old.............

>>>Evo's are incredibly reliable

They certainly are that. A good friend of mine who is the head wrench in a local HD dealer rides more than anyone I know. He has a 2002 95" Electraglide that has 59,000 miles on it & that is living in upstate NY where he can only ride in the summer!!

His previous ride was an EVO Heritage & he put over 140,000 miles on with nothing but normal maintenance. I had to rescue him once when his voltage regulator went dead, the battery died & the bike quit but that could happen to any bike.

The thing I like best however about my 95" twin-cam Heritage is the total lack of vibration. The counter balanced "B" motors are so smooth it is unbelievable. Even with all the work I have done to my HTCC motor, it is just as smooth as it was when it was totally stock.

No dirt kicking on the Evo`s!For one thing the Evo is a much better looking motor.Sure,it may vibrate a little but it is not an inline 3 or 4 from across the pond.How many custom bikes out there are sporting the twin cam design-not too many.The heat and bearing issues will be their down fall if not taken care of sooner than later.Try swapping out cams to get your performance where you want it,unless you are Mr. Super Speed Wrench you`ll be spending twice the time swapping ..O.K. the 2 piece rockers is simpler .I`d give him the 13-5 for the bike because it does have the Evo,and 12-5 equiped with the T.C.Just my opinion,don`t crucify me. T.C. `s should be easier to make 100 ponies because they are 88"`s to start but you have to admit they are pretty anemic stock.Snow is gone for now so maybe everyone will be able to ride soon no matter what you prefer to ride.Toby

Evo's are the best. Wouldnt own a TC but that's one this sporty owners never have to deal with. Has any one seen the 120 cubic inch sporty motor Zippers has out its a monster.
