Yep

Build it. That's what Harleys are all about. I built mine exactly the way I wanted it. Not particularly hard on a Harley, despite those who would bash them!!!!

I'm looking at a '93 ex Police Harley (FLHP?) today. It has been repainted, new tires, lights removed, etc. What can I look for to determine if the mileage is 23,000 or 123,000?

Or, do I even need to look? It came out of Florida. Would they sell a bike with less than 23,000?

If it's an ex police bike, 123,000...they don't get surveyed (retired) until they have a significant number of miles on them...varies from agency to agency, but 80,000 miles is typical, or used to be typical, for black & whites... So, when you consider it, keep that in mind, and be ready for some BS reason why it's 'really 23,000 miles'...just had that situation come up on a Kawasaki police bike...

The fact that I am considering buying a Harley, says I must be in the twilight zone. Sorry for the hijack.

Depends. Not all low mileage ex police bikes are BS. They can get surveyed if the Dept. changes brands. They can also get surveyed strictly based on age by some depts. Sometimes depts make mistakes when they order and some bikes don't get put into service. Or somebody uses the bike as personal transportation. These are the exceptions of course but it does happen. Most depts take good care of their bikes so I wouldn't be as concerned with a high mileage bike from a PD as I would with one from a civilian.

I'd look at the over all condition of things like the hand grips, the floor boards, and the seat. A 23,000 mile seat will look way different than a 123,000 mile seat.

I really like that TZ episode myself.

Most of the obvious wear items have been replaced with new aftermarket, seat, grips, floor boards, exhaust, mirrors, windshield, gravity deflector and asshat eliminator.

I'd say it's got 123,000 then. Why replace all that stuff if they were in good shape?
