JTH's HD 883 Dual Sport'ster conversion

www.carduccidualsport.com

Theres been some interest in this build, so thought I would post the development progress and hopefully get some insight from the inmates, as there are alot of challenges.

Ive wanted to do this for years, but kept putting it off, but recently have seen a few nicely done conversions that have been the inspiration and ambition to finally give it a try.

So, with a vision in mind, I started with a stock 03 HD 883 Hugger, 100th anniversary, that I picked up on new years ever last year. Next day began tearing it appart.

I presume that the gold-coloured item between the top triple clamp and the handlebar clamp is a steering damper?

Ok, just test fitted the new triple clamps to the old KTM forks. Fit is good. I should get the bike back tonight with new tank (being polished as we speak) and then will install these new parts.

Here's some pics of the test fit...

Look good! I had a look at Evan Wilcox website.. and his asking price for custom tank is I'm gonna have to pass and build my own one.

But thanks for inspiring me to do my project..

Wow Jimmy that tank is aluminum porn.
Really incredible work.

I can see where some might not like the exact shape of it, but I do not think anyone that has touched metal could look at that and not have utmost respect for it.

I personally like the Form, Function, and the fabrication is flawless.
Wow, all of those F's, I feel like I am in a Who song...."why don't you all F F Fade away, talkin bout my generation..."
