I was always impressed with the Patrick Racing Evo engines. I'll probably drop one into my FXR when I find an extra 10 grand laying around...

If it was an old school traditional chopper i would point you over to the Jockey Journal message boards. Unfortunately, I don't know squat about modern choppers nor their components. Start yourself a build thread and show us what you're working with, even if it's just bits and pieces or sketches on paper. Most of us love to see a good build come together in pictures and posts. Welcome to the madhouse!
