If you have a custom frame you could probably put about any engine on earth in there provided that it actually fits. If you want simplicity HD, Revtech, and Ultima are all "Harley Clones" and there is a never ending aftermarket for them. Lots of options for transmissions, accessories, power level, etc.

The VTX1800 engine on the other hand puts out just as much (or more) power and has something that the HD engines don't: A reliable track record. Down side to the VTX engine is that it is electronic and liquid cooled adding a lot of complexity to the build but if you're up to the task it'll be worth it. With the VTX you're pretty much stuck with the transmission Honda bolted to it, which is a shaft drive.

If you use an "HD" type engine it'll look classic, the sound will be un-matched, and when you're broke down on the side of the road it'll look freaking sweet for the other gawkers who are trying to help you figure out where the oil is squirting out.

If you use the VTX engine, likely you'll be the only one who'll ever know it's not an actual "Harley" type engine and it'll run to the end of the earth and back a thousand times without issue.

For the record I actually OWN a '96 Harley Davidson so I have an idea of what to expect.....they ****. If you can figure out how to use the VTX engine go for it.

If you mean it fits, as in the motor sits in the hole, any motor will work as long as it is under 110 cubic inches. If you mean fits, as in it has mounts to brackets, the vtx is the only motor that will work without welding in new brackets.
