I am in the pacific northwest, I'll take ya in an 1/8th, maybe a quarter but rigid jammer ain't going to keep up in the twistys (I'll go to my Shadow 500 for that)

Never raced officially but plenty of bar bets and red light warriors; and never on the ironhead yet. But after we re-brake her in and dial in the specs I'm down to meet up. Never weighed her but I'm guessing under 300lbs.
190 engine
~50 frame
~30 wheels
_____________+
~270 lbs + forks, tank, drag pipes, chopped fenders, bbar,.... OK maybe over, but not by much.

Where you at ish, We are planning some trips, maybe even Arizona in a couple summers. I'll let you know if I'm in the area. I don't have much to put down, but I can buy the drinks if I lose or something!

Light is where it's at.

Power/weight

Why I never thought I'd own a Harley. But I got old

You might drop a note to Myles,”steelworker “ as he has raced in England and France. Perhaps more,
