As you might have guessed, it is not a 110, twin cam motor.  :nixweiss:

"The Sport Glide had also gone through 105 rear tires, 65 front tires, 17 stators, 9 seats"

Wow,...17 stators.  My '01 went through 5 in 8 years.

Nothing wrong with a 110 when properly maintained.  Mine is about to roll over 215,000 miles and it hasn't had a rebuild.  Found it interesting reading that the one in the article had been rebuilt 10 times over its life.

A re-manufactured engine installed in 2009, so the frame went a million miles!?!

And I was impressed when mine rolled over the 70k mile mark.  Still the most reliable Harley that I've ever owned and I've owned a bunch!
