Description
Nice 1998 Heritage Springer for sale, ready to ride with 1948 Panhead styling.  This outstanding motorcycle has been cared for and regularly maintained with oil & filter changes every 3,000 miles.  Transmission and primary fluid have just been changed.  It has never been dropped or wrecked.  The black with blue/gold paint and chrome are both original to the motorcycle. Paint is in very good condition, with a few minor blemishes due to normal usage, as seen in the pictures.  Chrome is also very good, with the worst wear to it being around the hard-to-reach area of the front fork springs.  There is a small spot on the engine cam cover cone where the chrome is flaking. Both tires were replaced about a year ago with Harley-Davidson Dunlops, with about 3,000 miles put on them. The battery is almost a year old, and I replaced the charging system stator this past April.  Clutch and brakes work perfectly, and this Harley-Davidson is a joy to ride.  The rear suspension is lowered 1.5 inches with an Arlen Ness lowering kit. Since I don't like to ride with a windshield, I installed a Hollywood bar on the handlebars to hold the windshield bag.  I Installed LED lighting, which makes a huge difference in visibility and nighttime riding.  I also installed a six-speed overdrive gear set, which makes for great highway riding and fuel mileage. Other than the S&S 510 camshaft, the engine is stock, with original ignition.  I re-jetted the original Kehin carburetor and changed the needle and spring to tune for the performance camshaft.  The stock air cleaners are insufficient to feed the engine with the larger camshaft, so a Harley-Davidson Screaming' Eagle breather has been installed.  Spark plug color is perfect, and the bike has great power and gets @ 45 miles per gallon.  The bike is stock original except for the lowered rear suspension, the Hollywood bar on the handlebars, Avon contour grips, LED lighting, six-speed transmission gear set, and the S&S 510 camshaft.  This springer has original true dual exhaust, with one small ding in the left side heat shield above the primary cover.  It runs quietly, but you may always install performance slip-on mufflers to make some noise.  Seat condition is very good.  The original leather saddlebags have always been cared for and oiled, and all of the buckles and straps work.  The interior saddlebag flap zippers could use some attention, I think two of the four are working.  There is a fully loaded kidney-shaped steel tool box on the right side which, thankfully, has never been needed.  I have a set of two ignition keys for it.  Overall, this 22 year old Harley-Davidson Softail is in very good-to-excellent condition.  Because it has been ridden, it is not perfect.  But it is very close.  It's mileage averages @1,500 miles per year since it left Milwaukee.  You will not be disappointed with this motorcycle, and I welcome's bidders to come see it in person in Franklin, Tennessee.  NO RESERVE.
