    I'm not sure what that is..but it's not a BigDog Ridgeback. It's missing fender struts that doesn't mount the same. Fender, wheels and side covers are different. The forward controls are Harley which is not OEM for 2004.

    The most telling part is the oil tank on ridgeback are not under the seat like your bike. All of The BigDog Hard Tail's (Ridgeback and Pitbulls) has oil tank on the bottom frame of the bike. I can't fathom someone would do all that work and move an oil tank.

    Not saying this to be negative or that's a bad thing if you bought it for a grand but just trying to help you ID what it is. I know if it was mine id want to know what it was..I think it will be a cool ride with a new paint job.

    Just for shits and giggles type the VIN in on this site and see what it says.

    Looks like someone did a build on a Ridgeback frame and he got it for a grand... fantastic deal.

    It's not a ridgeback frame it any big dog frame for that matter that's what I'm saying. Missing some mounts that should be welded into the frame.

    Again nothing wrong with the bike. I'm just trying to help him figure out what he has.

    And I'd buy it from him for a grand whatever it is...lol

    Now you got me, I'm curious about the frame origin too... like you said, it'll be easy to figure out if he posts the frame vin.

    First letter is a K? No clue what that is bro. K is not a valid VIN. Hopefully you don't have issues at the DMV. Looks like someone tried to put that on themselves not a straight letters and manufacturers stamp them so letters can't be out of line. 7 character is a big question mark for me?

    Wish you luck man!

    Any big dog would have a 1,2, 4 or 5

    The 10th digit is the year and an L indicates 1990
