    Had over 150,000 on my panhead when I blew it up, my fault because I was cheating and just did a top end job on an tired lower end. Rebuilt it and had another 30,000 on it when I had to sell it. My 1992 FLHTU had 75,000 with just the normal work on it, oil & tire changes, tune ups. Like anything else (except for exwifes) you take care of them they'll take care of you.

    I have right at 73K on my dyna now and plan to put 3 times that many on her. I replaced the cams (S&S 510) with gear drive instead of tensioners, oil pump (high flow), cam support plate, push rods and lifters at 70K.

    Close to 130,000 miles on a 2000 FXDS.. It was still NEW Looking when parted with(traded off,,, 09 FLHR).. Sure miss that bike..
    odometer reading 117,000 but off for a few miles, due to 6 speed conversion so 130,000 is a low estimate.

    570SS gear drives, Python 3 exhaust, 42 mikuni and large manifold, scream'n Eagle programable ignition, Head work: flow-ported manley valves and springs. 95" bore using SE teflon pistons,10.25/1 and 6 speed gears installed into HD 5 spd box. the Stock clutch was still in-use and good shape (can't hardly believe that my self!)
