    Sold my 90 FLHS (112K on the odo) and wanted something to play with. Bought this 05 883 Sportster new and started ripping it apart.

    So far, I have:
    Converted it to 1200cc with Andrews N8 cams
    Chopped the frame
    Ditched the fenders
    Turned down the sliders
    Replaced the front end with a custom built wide glide
    Running a 16x5 up front to match the rear
    Custom tank split and 3" added to up the fuel capacity from 3.2 to 4.25gal.
    Gastank side mounted sight guage
    Hand built cafe seat with hidden locking copartment
    Ford Model A Teardrop brakelight
    Buell headers & custom built exhaust
    Chopped cam & tranny gear covers
    Ness Stage II intake with custom cut a/c cover
    70's vintage Olds wheel spinner converted to a gas cap
    70's era 8" headlight
    Ditched the turnsignals, reflectors, speedo, idiot lights etc
    70 Yamaha SR500 tank pads
    30" drag bars with bar-end mirror & offside weight

    Still planned: Extend the swingarm by 2", got some 70's ladder bars to put on it (Have all the parts for these, just haven't gotten around to it)

    This is my daily driver (commuter) bike.
