No Reserve: 1997 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1997 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Soft Tail Classic was purchased by the seller two years ago from the widow of the original owner. Currently showing just over 18k miles, the bike is equipped with a windscreen, crash bar, accessory lights, and saddle bags. Power comes from an 80ci V-twin, which is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and has been fitted with a Stage 1 carburetor kit and a 2 into 1 exhaust. An oil change has been performed during the seller’s ownership, and a fresh battery was also added along with new tires. This Softail Classic is now being offered at no reserve with a fringed factory dual seat, a bolt-on luggage rack, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name. The bike is finished in Vivid Black, and optional equipment includes a windshield, accessory lights, and crash bars. The seller notes a minor nick on the front fender, as well as a small chip and light scratch on the gas tank. A few scratches and a scuff can also be seen on the rear fender from where the pillion passenger seat was once mounted. The windshield was recently replaced due to age-related wear, and new whitewall tires were also fitted along with new rim bands and inner tubes. A Badlands run, brake, and turn signal module was added for safety and converts the rear turn signals into running and brake lights while still retaining turn signal functionality. Cargo can be stored in studded leather saddle bags mounted on either side of the rear wheel. The seller has added approximately 500 miles during his two years of ownership. Power comes from a 80ci V-twin mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. An aftermarket Thunderheader 2 into 1 exhaust and a Stage 1 carburetor kit have been added. No service records are available as the original owner was an aircraft mechanic who performed all necessary maintenance personally. The seller had the oil changed, the carburetor rebuilt, and a new battery installed by the local Harley Davidson dealer in 2016. A passenger pillion seat is included, as is a fringed Harley Davidson dual seat with removable driver’s backrest and a bolt-on luggage rack with passenger backrest. The seller has provided videos of both cold and warm starts and a brief drive by.
