Sportster Modifications Complete!

I've been slacking on posts because every night this week I have been putting in very long hours in the garage.  I finished today!!!!!

Here's a list of what I changed over the last 2 months:
  • New chrome spoked rear wheel
  • New rear tire (Avon Safety Mileage)
  • New rear fender with rattlecan lace paint job and custom fender brace
  • New pipes (wrapped Vance & Hines short shots)
  • New custom license plate mount
  • New custom rear fender struts / taillight holders
  • Chopped "mini-fender"
  • Custom seat bracket
  • Mini-horn with custom bracket hidden under motor
  • Gas tank paint touch-up
  • Removed the belt guards
  • Reinstalled the Road King shocks
  • Many assorted chromey bits
The Sportster is completely back together and I took it for a ride this evening.  It fired right up on the first try and ran great!  I plan to ride it to First Thursday tomorrow and then take it for its first serious ride this Saturday with some friends.

I'll post some of the detail pics of how it all came together later but, for now, here is the finished product:

Sweet scoot. I love the painting posts, I learned a few tricks to try when I get around to painting my sporty later this summer.
