If it's not leaking on the ground I would assume either the rings were improperly installed on the pistons or one of the o-ring seals in the rocker area is missing.

Still not enough information... Could be improper cylinder finish, could be improperly installed rings, could be valve guide, incorrectly assembled breathers or missing umbrella's... OP says it's using oil, but how much... (Harley says a new 103 can use as much as quart during initial 500 miles... I think that's excessive, but they don't)... Is there oil pooling in the intake manifold?
