Here is my 1983 FXRS













Stock bore and stroke
S&S Cylinders
stock heads
9.5/1 WISECO forged pistons
Andrews A2 cam (thinking about going to a Leineweber L3S, comments please)
S&S Super E
Paughco Replica FXR exhaust

I am tall so went with the forward controls instead of mids
Paint scheme is same colors as was stock, Vivid Black with gold pin stripe and decals. 
Yes it has the wrong front fender for the year.  I think it looks better.

That's a Beautiful bike... So smooth... I'm running the A2 as well at 9.0:1... Great cam... Nice bike Man....

Here's mine. It started life as a 1983 FXSB. It is now 98", 11.7:1 static compression, Redshift 625 cam, 5 in a 4 trans, and a bunch of other stuff I've forgotten.
That is one sweet ride, nice job man..... Too bad the pics didn't show up...

Nice looking scoot! Are those bars from Exile cycle? I like the clean riser setup.

Here's Johnny !! Titled as an 83 "homemade" . Nothing 83 about it. Just a bunch of crap throwed together one piece at a time. Been riding it for over 20 years.

This was somewhat of a basket case my son in law brought to my shop. Never did figure out why previous owner took it apart. Painted the tins and put it all back together. Turned out to be a good bar hopper. 76 model.

 Nice but it's interesting you specified bar hopper. When I had that seat on my 76 I loved the profile but I didn't want to ride much farther than a bar myself. However, I do suffer from Noassatall  :hyst:

Went on a little road trip yesterday to take a look at this one the guy is selling. It is very very nice and has the OEM Rack and Locking Tour Pak and also the OEM bags, the bags on it are not the OEM, they are put away. Bike runs like a Shovel fired right up and idled with the smoothest of Potato's, engine has been split and all rebuilt complete he has all the paperwork.

Different how? Differnet than the generic looking slugs off the showroom floor these days? Looks quite classic to me. I'm with Hoss, a eye catcher. How could you walk through a line of new blah blah blah Twin Cams and not notice that classy lookng machine parked along side?

Actually, I think I can understand. I go down the our local dealer on my '77, park it in the lot, and I might as well be invisible. Nobody looks at it or me, or asks hey man what year is that bike? Harley riders. Yeah. Right.

Very True! I get the same response when I take the Super Glide out.  It's sad the lack of knowledge of the MoCo's history these people have....even the salesmen.
