I'm a newbie to the forum world so if I make any mistakes posting please let me know. Some back ground first. I ride an 80 80 FLH and a 96" 79 FLH.I rebuilt both from the ground up. I am a ticketed pressure welder, millwright and others. I am very familiar at checking for metal fatigue and weld integrity etc. I have purchased a 2009 FLHX that was marked as non repairable (should never have been done according to a local HD dealer since you can always purchase a new frame with the same serial number). I am looking for the steps I need to follow to get this bike recertified once all the cosmetic repairs are completed. I have started to dismantle the bike and I will strip it down to just the frame and confirm my first belief that it is sound. I read in one of the posts that when repairing a bike you should ask yourself - would I let my child ride it when it is done. This is something I agree with completely and when this bike is finished the kids can go for a putt if they can pry me off. If the frame has to be replaced what are my options for a new one or is it only through a HD dealer. Does it have to have the same serial number? Where would I go to find documentation to start the re-registration process? Thanks for any help.
