    Welcome from Kansas. There are several options to fix your troubles. You can go back original, almost original, or total rewire...again. Just keep reading...

    I bought it a few years ago, it was in some rough shape but ran great. Owned by a kid that did not appreciate it at all. I definitely need to just customize it to me now, but the electrical I think needs to get back to oem.

    I would think twice before going to oem. You now have a blank page to do whatever. Going oem will not be the cheapest route to go. Do you have Big Dog hand controls or HD style?

    I have "no" controls so I guess I can HD and stick with what I know with my Street Glide.

    HD or aftermarket. Also, this would be the time to change the bars if you want to. Then get controls for the diameter bar you choose. You could always go for the clean look and not put controls back on the bars. Get a starter cover that has a start plunger on it, then hide switches somewhere out of the way. That would give you a really clean look.

    I need a lot of parts, where can I find a website or your price and availability of parts. I tried looking up bigdogpartsking but it brought up a lot of sites.

    Welcome from Wisconsin. I have an 04 Chop and it seems that if these guys can’t put you on the right direction to fix your problem then it can’t be fixed.
