Howdy ya'll. New to this forum and just bought my Harley last year so yes, I'm a NEWBIE NEWBIE NEWBIE just to get that out of the way. Anyway, I found it in a barn and had been sitting for 12 years. $800.00 later and it was in the back of my truck and on the way to my shop. Now, I've been riding for about ten years now but as I say, this is my first Harley so bare with me. Since I have started modifying and upgrading my 85, I have noticed that the aftermarket world is somewhat limited when it comes to this year Softail. Kinda like it's been left behind or forgotten about (hence the title "red headed step child"). Seems like all the catalouges and websites go from 77-84 to 86-99. What gives? I'm sure that to some of you this is probably common knowledge. Anybody care to enlighten me? Thanks.
