Default 1250????????

Well after about 3years on this 1250 I’m going 1275 . I looked into the s&s 1640cc 100ci and it has about the same or less hp as a 1275. I know the s&s can be hooped up for more hp but just couldn’t justify buying it. Besides they won’t sell it to people in CA well that’s what the website said. I think I’ll just piggyback the 1275 build in this old thread as well as the thread I have going for modifying a patriot defender called hears the plan. If I get to be annoying guys just let me know.

I'd have thought it'd be better to start a new thread for this new project?
