Hot Bike - - Hometown Harleys -

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!
