2003 HD Sportster 883 Build
So got a new toy as a trade for some work a week or so ago. got it on the road and drove it 3 hours out to my buddies motorcycle shop in pittsfield MA. i dont have the time or knowledge to do it myself but for the first day we sat and ordered a bunch of stuff and then he told me how to break it down so i took a lot of it apart myself.

heres how she sat when i first got her

after the tear down

and tonight kev sent me this photo with the new bars on. everything is gonna be internal, except for the clutch cable so its gonna look so clean.

very excited to get back on this thing! cant wait till shes done. i will keep this updated with pics.

yea she's a fun lil toy. have so many more plans for her. just broke my throttle cable. should have it fixed by the weekend.

mine is only an 883. but hoping to get into a hammer performance 1250 kit this winter. then it'll really move. lol.
