Some beautiful machinery in here guys!

Bought my first Harley last summer, a 2001 XLH883 Sportster




but it wasn't quite big enough for the lady and I to use for long distance work, so sold it and bought one of these



and just last month, traded that in for a brand new FXDF



Have had it stage one'd with Khrome Werks pipes, tribar rear light, smoked t/signals, black axle covers, sundowner seat and sissy bar with rack.

Love the bike, so much fun!

I had a black Fatbob for a few months before trading it in for a Road King and I loved the thing. If I ever become independently wealthy I'll have to buy another one. The reason we traded it in is because I wanted something that would be more comfortable for long distance 2up riding, the wife felt like she was going to fall off on the FB and it didn't feel right putting touring gear on the Dyna.

I was able to confidently navigate muddy dirt roads on the FXDF and it was a joy to ride around town.

LOL! My wife hated riding on the FatBob too because it felt like she was falling off. That passenger seat is sloped and pretty slick though. Last month I bought the quick attach accessories and found the parts to make a mini rail backrest fit, now she loves it!

here is a recent pic of my Ultra. I recently had a 117" engine built and am currently doing the breakin miles. I also went the HD extended bags, streetglide rear end, and detachable tourpack. I only have about 16k miles on it because it has been tore apart alot of the last year making changes. For now it is complete and I'm planning on keeping it until I ride the wheels off of it.



Here is a pic of my fatbob. It has a 113" motor putting out 118/143. Crank has been welded/balanced, ohlins shocks, the list goes on and on for this bike.


Here is a pic of my springer. Just apes and air ride on it are the main changes.


I'm debating on selling the springer and fatbob this winter. I really want to get an adventure bike and not have to deal with my HD dealer any more than I actually HAVE to.

I'm with you on the forwards and they were the first thing that I changed on the bike. Picked em' up brand new and complete (shifter/brake levers,pegs and mounts) for $100 on ebay.

Which reminds me...Anyone need a set of forwards for an 07' up Sporty? They have less than 100 miles on them.

anybody know what fits what?
I've seen sellers advertise fitments as 04-06, 07-11, 06-11....



This was in regard to controls, but shit, let's talk in general here too. What sportie years have the same goods as an 06?

As crazy as it sounds, go get the big parts book from HD - it has all the details in far better form than you can get from the rest of us. And a lot of pretty pictures too

Then again, every time I get one of those books, my wallet gets lighter...
