I just acquired an HD similar to yours and have had the same thoughts about doing a klunker style cruiser. You and @JA331 have been putting some ideas in my head for this one!Thanks. It is dialed. I'm slowly gathering parts for this bike for a klunker build. I'm not taking the bike apart until I have all of the parts because I love riding it.
The one thing I live with on this bike for now are the narrow handlebars. I'm used to 29 - 30" wide BMX bars.
