I’m one of the few, the proud who owns one of these Sportsters on steroids! Here’s my 2011 Harley Sportster XR1200X, which I flew out to Texas to pick up in March. It took me six months to find a super-clean, low-mile, one-owner specimen. I took this completely bone stocker and immediately went to work. I custom fabbed and stretched an XL model Roland Sands Slant 2-into-1 exhaust pipe then had mounts welded to the frame to install factory mid-controls with a custom rear brake designed by yours truly. I had a custom carbon-fiber seat made by “The Seat Guy” in Santa Ana, California, LA Choppers 2-inch risers, and a Memphis Shades windshield just to mention a few. I just did a 1,000-mile four-day ride on Route 66 to the 35th Annual Laughlin River Run. My baby performed flawlessly!
