FROM AUSSIE TO STURGIS

Hot Bike - - Hometown Harleys -

Fi­nally sorted my cus­tom Sport­ster I built from a 2001 883 cus­tom. Not much re­mains of the orig­i­nal bike af­ter adding the Buell XB-12 front end with an­odized gold fork tubes and clip-ons, a ’75 gas tank, cus­tom seat, and fab­ri­cated rear fen­der. Even the mo­tor got a Ham­mer Per­for­mance 1,250cc kit and heads with .560 lift cams and a 42 Mikuni carb, Kuryakyn Ve­loc­ity in­take feed­ing it, and Su­per­trapp 2-into-1 ex­haust. It’s also con­verted to chain drive with Galfer ro­tors front and rear help­ing it stop. Canyon carv­ing is aided by Chain­sikle rearsets and gear shift kit. Cus­tom Paint and de­cals fin­ish it off. I’m rid­ing it to Sturgis this year from LA, with a mate rid­ing my ’89 FXR and an­other mate rid­ing an ex-po­lice ’07 Road King. We’re all fly­ing in from Aus­tralia (home) for this road trip. Cheers!
