Please tell me you are not gonna track race it. Unless you do alot of expensive internal bottom end mods it will blow up. I know, I did it to my 83' XR-1000. Never seen so much metal floating around in the oil................

Mr Lowry, No this will not be a race Bike, all the Mods are cosmetic. This is a 3,400 mile original owner bike. My Buddy just wanted it to stand out a bit more. I think if HD would have used this body work the bike may have sold in greater numbers.
