I so want to ride it!
I so want to watch you ride it :lol:

Nice work Peter, I'm looking forward to the engine part, I ride Harleys so this will be a interesting way to use a Harley motor.


Completed: FL14, OD18

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

I'm sure you probably know it but the Vrod motor was a joint deal with Porsche.
No I did not know that, Cool 8) So now I'm owning a Harley and a Porsche :lol:

Larry I bought this package last week, Engine, Gas Fuel Injector Injectors, Gas Fuel Injector Rail 27662-01, Gas Fuel Injector Wire Wiring Harness, Exhaust Muffler Header Pipe, Front Exhaust Muffler Header Pipe, ECU ECM Computer Control Module 32544-01, Main Wiring Wire Harness Loom.
It all came from the same running 2002 Harley Davidson VROD with low miles, this was not a wrecked or salvaged bike
According to the seller only thing missing in this package is the throttle body, he sold that a week earlier and I have to source it from an other seller.
He told me I should be able to put all this together to a running package, no clue where to start, a shop manual would come in handy :doh: .

In the original MC frame it was liquid cooled - any thoughts to how you're going to keep it cool? Ought to be bad ass though - 115hp.
