If I had the $$$ Id be buying a HD 883, but I dont have the $9k to buy one new or even used....Cant even find a HD "in a basket" to fix and assemble! So this is what Im stuck with till I win the powerball.......It runs and I got 2 spare engines for it, so it's just gonna have to work for me....as for the CE HD generator....I used to work for them way back when, (Wound field coils for these generators) so I know what im working with....figure IF I need to go there, I could simply mount the gen on the swingarm, theres enough room and that way the gen will move with the chain....that is only a last resort, as it would rob power from the wheel, anyways Im all about modding in order to make it mine, my way, not old man Honda's way. I almost literly only have a honda frame, engine, and fuel tank on this bike, most everything else has been redone, ALL the electrical, coils (im using '69 Camaro SS coils
)rear break, looking for new front forks today to convert to disc breaks, and possible rear as well. next to go is the stock charging system, just need to order the magnet wire in order to do the rewind of the stator. Like I said, if i had the $$ I would buy a different bike, and just keep this one for around town, but alas, the sorry economy has hurt us all!
