Just an FYI amigo, that cat the did the build on my shitbox used my sale cash to build a FatBoy - He was all set to go FatBoy S with the 110 but found out that the 103 was the better plant to build off if you want to get nutty......like you do - I guess a lot of 110s have gone boom due to being just drilled out 103s and losing that valuable wall space - I may be talking out my ass (happened back in '97 once) but have heard this a few times (a lot of Low Rider S's have gone boom with the 110) and knowing that the rich bastard who built my sled could have used anything on the market...went 103 over the 110 in terms of a "stronger" build
Just something to think about
110's have many more options to build upon now and most of those issues are not true anymore. You can always find the example you stated though with about any motor. True a 103" is a great platform but new kits even from the aftermarket are making the 110" a great place to start from as well. Some companies 113" or 117" kits are right on par with the 120's in some cases. I used to feel just like you and have even said so on other threads on this forum but I have been riding with some converted 110's that have started changing my mind. Yes, I have seen a couple getting up there in some mileage as well and still going strong. With that said.... Unless you need to save a couple of k I would just do a 120 or 124 and go from there but you can find a great deal on 110's out there. Smarty just did a 110" build in his bike and his Tq curve looks amazing from low to high rpms. Maybe he will chime in and give his thoughts.
