Hello all, and thanks again for the warm welcome on the newbie page. Hope I'm in the right place for this question...my Harley experience is very limited, been away from it for years
I'm looking at a 2001 Heritage Softtail Classic trike for sale locally and I would like some tips on what I should be looking for in a used bike. It has 46k miles on it, garage kept, suppose to have the 95 c.i. upgrade (how would I know?) motor trike conversion, lots of chrome goodies, geared reverse. Drove the bike today, looks and drove very well. $14,900
Your thoughts please?
Thanks

I wonder if they were referring to the hyd cam chain tensioner upgrade the 95's came with ? Either way those cam tensioners are the one thing at that mileage you want to know about , if thats the upgrade they did then your in good shape.

HD didn't make a 95" motor. You are thinking of the 96".


A 95" motor starts out as an 88", then gets big bore cylinders.

88" = 3.750" Bore
95" = 3.875" Bore


But I agree, cam chain tensioners would be on the maintenance inspection list.

95" was the "Big Bore" kit sold for the 88. A lot of places still offer them.

The stock 96" actually has the same bore as an 88".

And a to support the others, you definitely want to know the cam tensioners are in good order before you buy. If that needs to be addressed, it'll cost you a pretty good penny.
