Here is my Sporty
2001, bought it with 7601 on March 1st, 2010 from the original owner.
Older guy road it back forth to work and occasionally with his wife here and there. He bought a street glide or something so he quit riding this.
Boring and stock.
He had screaming eagle pipe, seat, forward controls, apparently a stage one carb kit(?) and little chrom bits here and there.
I added new Harley ape hangers, Solo seat, nightster mirrors lower mounted, new Pirelli rear tire, custom foot pegs from my old bicycle, Paint job(corvette white with gold pearl and gold metal flake, scallops are BMW black pearl with gold pearl and gold metal flake.), chrome head bolt covers, cramp buster, EZ pull clutch, k&n filter, custom ham can(pics coming soon) and moved turn signals to fork clamps.
I love this bike. Im a first year rider and i have about 3000 miles to date so far. Tons of fun cruising around and doing nothing.
Future mods: 21 inch spoke front wheel, speedometer and tach relocation.

I'm still needing a set of crash bars for the bike and am in the market for a set used or otherwise. I've purchased a lot of these items from members here and other forums, so don't think thi hasn't gone unappreciated.
So I’m not sure what’s going on with my oil. I changed the oil, started it up, then it looks like a mocha frappe. I can’t tell whether it’s just air getting into the mix somewhere, or fuel maybe. But any insight would be appreciated. I’m thinking whatever is causing the problem is gonna be bad...
Purchased a 2020 iron 883 a week ago. Bike had 8 miles on it. Got it delivered this past Friday. Finally got to go for a ride tonight. Didn’t make it 2 miles down the road when I noticed just the battery light on. Pulled into the gas station and let it run and it went off. Go to leave and the...
Hey guys I'm new to the forum and the biker world. I turn 21 in a few months and want a motorcycle. I've already registered for a msf course and getting the appropriate safety equipment. With all that being said I have no idea what is a good beginner bike. I have experience with dirt bikes...
