I traded a truck for a 1997 custom Hardtail Harley. Never owned a Harley, but have owned other bikes. I don't know what it is, what size engine, tranny, etc. The Engine and tranny are seperate, has the big belt on the left side. It only has a kick starter and just found out it has a S&S engine with 11:1 compression which would explain why kick starting it is crazy scary. Please and check out the pics. It is World Wide Web .thesladefamily.org/Harley.htm Things I would like to know: What kind of tranny,year and type? Can I add an electric starter? Can I upgrade the clutch setup? Any other tidbits of info/wisdom from you experienced Harely riders would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
