Default 2001 Harley FLHRC questions.

Im looking at a 01' Harley FLHRC with 70k miles. I assume it's an 88ci EVO and 5spd. With 70k on the clock is this bike's life somewhat limited? What kind of reliability can i expect with a bike with this many miles? I have always rode metric cruisers and none of them ever had more than 30k miles on them and were very light on maintenance. Just need a heads up before i jump.

YES, that a lot on miles and the price should be low
check the ATLANTA CL (just for reference, do a search just for the word harley in entire post) which is loaded with HARLEYS [http://atlanta.craigslist.org/search...nAsk=&maxAsk=], I suspect you will see several like this one with only 20,000 miles

the '01 Road King Classic, is a over all good bike
the EVO engine is a long lasing engine if properly maintained, much of which you can do yourself with the help of a FACTORY manual, which I belive I can find the download on line@ shovelhead USA in the evo section.
other manuals can be a complemet to the factory manual but they can also be confusing.

I know of no issues with the '01 as with the '02 which is plagued with bearing problems.

also the EVO engine is easy to work on and can go up to and over 80,000 miles, and with the fuel injection and electronic ignation, needs nothing more than push rod adjustments.

the Road King is nice and easy to drive and maintaing a highway speed of 80+mph all day long will not wear you out.

check to see if you have a 'B' code engine, the sought after balanced engine.

I have never owned a Motorcycle newer than 1980 and currently drive the '50's & '70's model (Panhead & Shovelhead)
I have many friends that ride EVO's & TWIN CAMS's

hopefully the seller has maintenance records which is a plus and can give you an indication of care

now keep in mind its is a buyers market, do your research on pricing in your area
and also it 'BUYER BEWARE'
if you have no knowledge as to what to look for I strongly suggest that if your serius you have the Bike checked out at a DEALER at a cost of about $80 - $120
in my area we have a DEALER that monthly does FREE bike checks

I would suspect the seller has gone through the useful life of this bike and would rather sell than rebuild
I'll go out on a limb and guess a price of $7,000 - $8,500 which is too high for the milage

The bike is at Cycle Connection, our local "authorized" Harley Davidson dealer. They want $7995 for the bike and are willing to finance for 5 years which is ok by me, but i hesitate because of the miles. I don't want to rebuild an engine while im paying for it. I've been known to ride 450 to 550 miles a day at times and definatly want a reliable bike. Thanks for the info J.

those miles and that price, I'd pass

and you can get a better loan from a credit union
I take that back probably not 5 years but a better intrest rate

the dealer probably gave the guy around $4000 - $5000 for a trade in on a new one


you can get a new Electra Glide Classic for about $350 a month , then add full coverage insurance

those new 103's are sweet

and a new used one that the seller has already tricked out go for less than list price

$350 a month is a bit much for me right now. I was trying to get between $200-$250 per month. I think i will pass on this bike. Im still searching, I have seen a ton of VTX's in 1300 and 1800, Early to mid 90's GL's, and a couple of Kawi Vulcan Voyager 1700cc for under $9k (my limit) around here. Finding a big inch FL Harley with good miles under that is hard around here. With winter around the corner means two things, too cold to ride and bike prices drop at the dealerships. So im in no hurry.
