Sportster XL 1200

1999 Sportster 1200 XL883C: 120+ hp, 1200 cc Screaming Eagle kit bored .040 over, with custom head work, Mikuni HSR48, K&N Intake and Bassani drag pipes, a little chrome, Corbin Sturgis solo seat, chain conversion, shaved tail light in a fiberglass rear fender, signals and front fender removed, 21" front wheel installed and the entire stance lowered about 2.5" on both ends.

I plan to make it more of a cruiser and less of a drag bike for the future, although it's fun seeing the look on some other riders faces when they decide to mess with my little 11.5 second Sportster.

Actually, I was apparently a little excited when I first posted my pics. :-)

The 21" wheel is stock on the XLH883C, and the carb is actually a 42, not a 48.
