This winter, I have new plans and the Sporty is going under the knife again.
This winter, at a minimum, I want to:
- Change the tank to a 3.3 gallon, seal & paint it
- Change the risers
- Change the seat so it fits the smaller tank
- Relocate the speedometer
- Shave and possibly paint the forks
- Hardtail the frame
- Change the oil tank
- Change the battery box
- Change the sissy bar
- Change the rear fender
- Change seat (spring)
- Change the headlight
- Change to a mini speedometer
- Change license plate holder / taillight combo
I also have a clamp for the speedo on the way too. I'm trying to figure out which size and type of risers I want to go with but I am leaning towards a set of black pullback risers to keep the handlebars pretty much where they are today.
Assuming I don't go all the way and hardtail the bike this winter (which would require a sprung seat), I will probably go with the Mustang Tripper Solo for the seat (I am a big fan of Mustang seats and have one on each bike) but I might try a LePera. My current seat might work but I think it'll leave a big gap between it and the tank and look way too wide compared to the smaller tank.
