the project underway...
This is how it started, how it looked when I bought it from my mom. A '01 sportster 883 that she had kitted up w/the screaming eagle 1200 kit and straight drag pipes.
This is how it looks now, I've changed the bars, the mirrors, installed a hypercharger (that I'm right now taking a break from...modifying), and put the smoke colored lenses on the turn signals:
The hypercharger is desgined to be pulled closed from the vacuum air off the carb, the valves opening the faster you go, causing the rushing air to open them. I'm modifying them so that the throttle actually opens them.
I'm not doing too much more before I leave for Korea (on or around july 17th), but when I get back, the gloves come off. New rear shocks that are higher perfomance and longer, a Mikuni carb, finding someone to fabricate a different style tank (as no one I've found actually makes what I have in mind for harleys), finding someone to fabricate a new rear fender assembly, some nifty lighting, a tachometer set, and a few other things. But I'm pretty happy w/how it's turning out so far.
