nuthin wrong with sportsters, I own 2.
do the 1200 kit if you want, an 883 with a 1200 kit will blow away any stock 1200

Not to start a war, but was this really necessary? Coming from someone that rides one of the ugliest bikes produced by the MOCO? But that is just my opinion.

As to the OP's original question, unless you need the funds, keep the sporty if you do upgrade. Nothing wrong with having two bikes.

OP,,
an 86, a solid mount,
still gonna have 883 gearing,
Gonna be buzzy at big speeds.
IMO I'd keep It stock for round town play,
an get a big bike for the Big roads..

Them base model dyna's er only 3 or 4 Inches longer wheel base
nuther 60-70 Lbs. Even a Fat bob 100 Lbs more, means nuthin once
ya get used to It.
Plenty fast and a extra gear.
