It is the 2.2 gallons tank.
About 108 miles without flogging.

At Interstate speeds it will probably be less.
Reserve is about 25-30 miles according to seller.

I am going to talk with HD about Rider to Rider financing.
http://www.harley-davidson.com/en_US...financing.html

That requires an inspection by HD.
Safeguard of sorts because HD does not want to own the bike.

Seller has agreed to bring it in.
Never met the man. Only phone conversation.
Asking 5k. Close to Kelley BB value.

Ebay Replacement?

Looks like seat modification is in order.

If you want a larger tank just post a WTB in the appropriate WTS,WTB, WTT thread over on xlforum. Lots of guys over there mod their bikes in different ways so someone will probably have a FI tank available. I saw one listed for sale from a guy converting to a carb a little while back. You can sell your 2.2 pretty easily, I would think, since some guys like them for the look on certain builds.

Rode from El Paso to Denton, TX and back. I just got back home on Sunday. The bike did great. The small gas tank made me stop often but it wasn't too bad. I wanted to take plenty of breaks anyway.

tire advise?

I picked up the <400 mile '96 xlh yesterday.

The 17 year old tires have to go before I can start having fun. The 16" wheels limit options but does anyone have any recommendations for something maybe a tad bit more grip than the standard HD/Dunlop offerings?




OOPS, I meant advice...

i dont know what it is but something about being out on a bike makes you want to stop and smell the roses much more than being in a cage. its fun to stop in places that you would fly on by if you were stuck in a car.

Hell. Giving a choice of I-10 and 20 there and back on a Sportster in July, I might have rather been shot up with Dilaudid and stuffed in the trunk of a Crown Vic. But that's just me. ;)

Hell, I'd rather be stuffed in the trunk without the Dilaudid even...

Droning along the interstate has never been my idea of riding though. The only times I even do it is to make the mad dash up to the mountains so I can have some fun. I think the longest I have EVER ridden a bike on the interstate was probably around 2-3 hours... ONCE. Just not my cup of tea at all... Pure torture on any bike I've ever ridden.

OOPS, I meant advice...
I put a set of Pirelli MT66 Route tires on my Sportster after reading a lot of positive reviews. I like how they ride and handle, even in the wet. My HD Dunlops were old and bad, too (I don't care for the Dunlops even when they are new).
I put a set on my BIL's Softail, and they work well there, too.
Also, they are reasonably priced.

Congratulations on your "time capsule"!
