The motor

One of the most important parts of a motorcycle is the motor. I bought this motor last summer from a fellow named Fred that put a 107" into his bike.
It is a 1995 Evo from a Heritage Softail. The heads are ported and polished with roller rocker arms, decked .050 and a V-Thunder 3010 cam. I'll be running it off points ignition to keep things simple.
The coolest part of this motor is it has my initials and my birthdate in the motor number. Like it was really ment for me from the get go when Harley-Davidson built it 15 years ago.
You may have noticed I always refer to it (and any motor for a Harley) as a motor. It's a motorcycle not a "engine"cycle.
