Hi everyone I'm currently rebuilding my late wife's bike as a memorial. We were hit by a drunk driver. I could really use some help locating parts and a manual for the bike. It's a 1996 flht and she has been sitting in the police impound for 5 years. I've got frame damage, broken fairings missing parts and you name it. This is the first time using your forum and much help would be appreciated.

Condolences on your loss.

I strongly recommend the factory shop manual and parts catalog. If the frame is severely damaged, used replacement frames are reasonable on Ebay. Ebay is where you are going to find most of your parts (I get my manuals and parts catalogs there too). Parts catalogs are vital for restorations. I also collect later parts books for my rides to learn what swaps.

vtwinforum touring section is not bad. You need bagger forums for bagger-specific issues and to learn about your upgrade and interchange options.

Post pics when you are getting damage evaluated. What is your wrenching experience level?
