The "Fat Strat"



I bought the bike on e-bay from a Lt.Col. in Topeka Ks. I flew from Orlando, Fl to Topeka, Ks. and rode the bike home. The Col. made most of the mods but I have added quite a few myself.
The 61 tooth Harley sprocket gets the R's down quite a bit. I'm turning 2600 at 80 MPH. No problem pulling the tall gears, these bikes are torque monsters.
Thanks for looking.

Fat Strat - I'm not one for too much bling, but DAMN! That is an incredible looking bike. It has the look of haulin' ass just sitting still.

how is the slipage from a dead stop with the 61 tooth rear spocket? and what belt length do you have?
Slippage is slightly more than with the stock 71 tooth. I consciously achieve full engagement quickly, to reduce slippage. The result is full engagement at a slightly lower RPM. I wouldn't want to be taking off from a dead stop pulling a loaded trailer up a hill, but solo or two up, no problem.
The number of teeth on the belt escapes me right now, but, it's ten less than stock. It's also a Harley belt.
