I bought a built 03 Lightning with only 54k yesterday to return to stock using low mileage running gear from a freinds Harley truck and flip,etc...After getting the truck home, I feel like putting the truck stock may not be the right thing to do and thinking about putting parts from my Hd on it and selling alot of parts. The Lightning has a 2.3 Kenne Bell but the blower is locked up. It has a built motor, stage 3 heads,cams,kooks long tubes, Bogarts, Fuel system, long bars, the list keeps going...

Should I keep the truck, swap motor from my hd and 2.6 kb or put truck to stock and sell all mods ( bogarts are spoken for ) and sell it , or sell like it is ? I kinda like the idea of pulling the Lightning with the HD but always looking for a way to make money and the HD is fun because nobody expects what its packin'...

I'd say throw a stock blower on it, include the locked up KB and sell it as is if you want to get rid of it.

step 1: put the running gear from the harley in the lightning

step 2: put the fine running salvaged, stock bits in the harley

step 3: leave the wheels and hood on the vehicle they're already on

step 4: sell me the harley truck because I miss my 03 100th and it'll get a nice life as a boring tow vehicle towing bikes..... like intended :D


both look great, I wish I was in your predicament either way. I seriously think you should swap running gear and stop fighting weight. I'd be curious to see what the same setup would do in a lighter truck.

That Lightning looks great, I'd be excited to see what it would run with the setup in your HD.

Please keep the HD. There's plenty of money to be made parting out the lightning and selling it as a stocker.

This, but seriously keep your truck the way it is its way more unique than a lightning.

God, both trucks look great.

Im with keeping the HD, but the lightning looks killer (i might like it more than the HD :dunno: )

If it were me, I think i'd get the lightning going for go fast and use the HD for family/towing.

I don't understand why anyone would build a truck to go fast. You know what my opinion is. Fast L's have been done.

I vote to keep the Harley truck the way it is. If you want to play with your money then throw it into the stock market.

Or please donate it to me, so I can do some investing, and get some new gear for working out on the flightline.

Update : keeping the hd but not like it is.... Its getting a whole new set-up and going BIG !! The lightning its going back to stock as we speak and most of the parts have been sold to fund the new set-up.
