The CVO'ing of an '85 FXWG - Progress and Pics
« on: March 29, 2008, 04:15:34 PM »

Well, it's begun, the CVO'ing of my '85 FXWG. The overhaul will include a RevTech 110" Evo Engine (same specs as my SERK, 4.375" stroke x 4.0" bore) 110 HP, complete with charging system, carb, ignition, all the covers, etc.; new RevTech 6-speed trans; new Heavy Duty clutch; chrome inner and outer primary's; new comp sprocket, 1.7 KW starter, etc. A complete conversion package from the crappy tapered keyway'd shaft 4-speed setup, to a modern splined 6-speed setup. Everything you need to replace the old stuff, complete! Traxxion AK-20 in new chrome CCI WG front end, bitubo 330mm shocks, chrome PM Countour Handlebar Controls w/Renthal Grips, PM Contour Foot Controls, PM chrome calipers  6-piston F & 4-piston R, HD Thunderstar 21" F & 16" R Wheels, new Metzler Lasertec tires, Russell floating rotors F&R, and new TStar style chrome sprocket, Headwinds headlight assembly, internally wired Wild 1's Chubby 10" baby apes w/ W1's 1-1/4" Risers 3-1/2" tall, and Autometer Electronic Speedo/Tach Combo with built-in indicator lights.

I sent the original stock seat out to Sargeant Cycle in FL for rebuilding as new.

All this will be mounted on a HD 1985 FXWG 4-speed frame. We had to cut the trans case and inner primary to clear the swingarm. Still not sure whether the original oil tank and battery box can be reused. Might need a wraparound Softail style oil tank instead.

Installing this drivetrain in the old 4-speed frame was like getting a big block in a Vega! But Vern and Buddy did some machining and got this bitch to work OK in my frame. Now they can complete mocking up the rest of the build to see what else comes up. Probably won't need a new wiring harness, and probably won't strip it down completely to have the frame repowdercoated. We'll probably just paint the areas on the frame that need touching up. We'll see how many tabs we cut off or add on first before making that final decision. I'm happy we got the drivetrain in the frame and got it to work, without cutting and lengthening the frame by 2" like we first thought. The machine work on the trans case and inner primary took care of that.

This thread is the pics of my '85 FXWG and my 89" EVO Pro Street. You can use these as the before pics.

Here's a few progress pics showing the 110" Evo motor and 6-speed trans in the '85 FXWG 4-speed frame. More pics to follow! ;)

That bet I'll take Brian! It actually took 5 coats of 3 different Glares, which I did myself! :o

Terry says I'll only need one coat each time now. I hope so, cause I seriously doubt you'll ever see me wax my bike for 8 hours again! :nixweiss: ;D

Howie looks like you got a good jump on your rebuild. I'm doing some mods and changes to my springer and it seems its going to take for ever as I keep finding things that need attention, you know what I mean. Good luck.  :2vrolijk_21:

Thanks Dave. Since I'm building a Rigid Bobber out of the takeoff parts from the FXWG, I'm not having problem replacing stuff! This is still cheaper than buying a new street bike. They haven't made a solid mount swingarm bike since '86. Now I'll have the modern version of a 4-speed frame bike. And a new one wouldn't have all the good chit on it either. It would need everything! I'll also have most of the parts to build another bike. So it was a no-brainer to overhaul the FXWG. And it'll be a real runner when it's done! ;)

Good luck with your Springer too! :2vrolijk_21:

It fit without cutting anything else. We had to cut the back of the trans case and inner primary, to clearance it around the swingarm. It's really made for a Softail frame, which gives you 2 more inches behind the trans than a 4-speed swingarm frame does. But so far, that's all he had to cut. Everything else fit. That's what's great about the '85/'86 4-speed frame. It's the only 4-speed swingarm frame to take an Evo, without cutting and raising the backbone. Evo's were stock in those bikes. Looks like it's on Steroids!!! :nixweiss: :D

Now we'll see if we can retain the stock oil tank on the left and battery box on the right. I'd like to leave the stock 4-speed look, even though I lost my kicker now with the 6-speed! ;)
