Make: 1989 Harley Davidson 1200 XL Softtail Custom
Model: FXR
41mm FLH fork leg with dual old style rotors
6" riser with drag bar
JB brake, with 2 start/off & horn switch only.
5b gal softail gas tank.

There were actually two bikes built for the movie because
the first bike barked up so much that it wouldn't idle.
The bike was actually not made for the movie. Mickey
drew the bike up on a cocktail napkin and when the producers
saw the idea they thought it was perfect for the movie. The other
interesting fact is that the seat has no padding what so ever.
It was a custom built seat made by taking a piece of sheet
metal and attaching a piece of leather to it by velcro. The
tank graphic was designed by Mickey himself and the artist is a secret.
The initials on the cards stand for a special friend in Mickey's life at that time.
The final product ended up the way it is because Mickey walked
in about half way through production
and said "That's exactely what I want!".

Modifications: An FXR frame with a hardtail conversion,
they took the rear shocks off and welded metal tubing
instead. The front end is raked 30 degrees.
They cut the bike neck and pushed the forks foward
in the front end to stretch it out.
Chrome time, they put more chrome on this
bike than a million mag wheels! Its engine has also been
modified, 120 cubic inch stroked. Finally they put an extra
fat tyre on the back and added drag pipes to the exhaust
for that extra deep note we love!

There is no such thing as an "XL 1200 Softail" or "XL 1200 FXR". The bike is an '89 FXR with a factory 80" motor which was modified.

Murphy's Law, Do better research before you post anything. You have no idea what you are talking about.
Here are the real detail on the bike:

ok the bike is an fxr with a factory 80 w/ 2 1/2 inch pipes. 6 in drag bars an appears to be fatbob tanks. the bike was originally a dyna with welded struts. as far as rake its a 42 degree rake. mickey did design this bike along with the other bikes he owns. recently the movie company hired black label bikes to recreate the bike but due to mickey it was not the same because there was only one and he has it. but it is damn close and sits in their museum.mickey also has ownership in the bike shop as well

It was a FXR. It was never a Dyna (FXD), which were manufactured after the FXRs. The FXRs are most easily identified by the triangle shape made by the frame tubes just below the rider's seat.

Pathetic overweight example of hyper-market driven piece of junk.

Chester hasn't been around for 9 years, only posted 3 times!

Looks like a Wide Glide front end (FXDWG), you'll need forks, yokes (triple trees for you Yanks) and the front wheel/spacers/disc & caliper. May not look right on your bike, it depends on the rake angle of your frame V's the rake of a Wide Glide frame, also, FXDWG has a 21" front wheel, your Dyna will have 19"?

There's bound to be someone near you who builds choppers? Ask him how it's done, there may be a kit of parts available to convert your bike.

Hey Chester I have a 1990 Fxrp. I also have the wide glide front end. Did the use 6 inch over tubes on that front end of Mickey’s bike. Some once told me it was an arlen ness front end with six inch over tubes. And is that a 150 or 180 rear tire? Any help would be appreciated.
