This Chopper Guys FXR was originally assembled with many of the top of the line parts that were available in 1998 when the bike began being constructed, and many of the components were made by high performance manufacturers such as show polished S & S Performance cases, a MAGNA Charger, and a chromed SU Carburetor which all make a visual impact on this bike. Based on documentation provided from G & H Custom Cycle the displacement of the engine was increased to 97" with Sputhe big bore barrels and a bottom up rebuild in 2001. The cylinder heads have been ported and polished and larger valves were installed for maximum flow by the same team.

A dual coil single fire ignition system from Crane, a set of two into one Vance & Hines pipes and you have an impressive high performance combination of parts, it only stands to reason that the same caliber of parts are on the inside of the engine too. The Hallcraft 80 spoke wheels wrapped in Avon tires supply the traction, Progressive Suspension shocks and a lowered 39mm front end with a wide glide conversion contribute to superior road handling, and H-D factory style polished calipers squeezing on to a show polished rotor on the back and Russell drilled full floating rotors up front provide the stopping power. Though tarnished looking at the time of viewing, a simple scrubbing will clean them up as good as new. The final drive is a 136 tooth belt pulling some significant horsepower to the 180 series rear tire.

A Rivera Engineering "Pro Clutch is in the primaries transferring the power from the five speed tranny. The riding position is addressed with Jay Brake forward controls with "Dovetail" pegs that match the passenger pegs and the grips, a custom upholstered seat and one piece pullback style bars with '96-up chromed handlebar controls. Simple and clean. The bike shows very few signs of wear aside from very minor "traditional" marks. Whether or not the mileage displayed is accurate is indeterminable. Mechanically, the bike does start easily and runs without any hesitation, the clutch engages smooth and the transmission shifts positively. There is no shortage of torque and horsepower.
