Nice looking Sportster. I had a 2006 XL883 I bought used, and it came with the Sundowner seat like you have. I always thought the Sundowner looked out of place on a Sportster. I ended up trading for the seat from a Custom model, and it fit right on. It did leave a little gap between the seat and tank (due to the 2004-2006 Customs having the larger 4.5 gallon tank), but it looked fine to me and seemed to look much better ....to me.

Yea, it does look out of place. I'll probably hold on to it. Trying to decide to get a stock seat or a Mustang Daytripper for short trips. Those are Dyna shocks, much better than the stockers.

My Mustang Wide Touring seat was ugly as all get out. However, my ass didn't seem to care, and neither did the ex's ass.

My '07 883C on an overnighter back in September. Touring mods include Road King shocks, Leatherlyke side bags, Lick's solo bag, Fox Creek sissy bar bag on H-D luggage rack, Rapid Transit tank bag, Slipstreamer windshield, 12" Mustang Vintage Solo seat, Sportster Low bars, 7" headlight, Ironhead front fender. Thinking seriously of upgunning to an NRHS 1250 kit soon.

^ ^ ^ That is bad-ass! ^ ^ ^

I'm picking up a Go Sportster (as opposed to a Show Sportster!) this Saturday! My first Harley, in 32 years and 22 bikes!

It's a 2007 Roadster 1200 with only 2,900 miles. This thing actually turns, handles, and stops like a real motorcycle! Not crazy about the seat, and the PO is reinstalling the stock pipes before I pick it up.

you will like that bike a lot. i have a little over 20k miles on my 2005 1200r sporty. its been great. ditch that seat though, kills the look of the bike although it probably is very comfortable :)

people that ride the 1200r say the same thing you just stated, 'hey this one turns and handles, and brakes,' and then they admit its...not a bad bike

also, swap to some me 880 marathons when you can, much better tire than the factory dunlops, turn in and braking becomes way better and it just improves overall feel.

my bike if one of the last carbed ones, do you need to have the ecu reflashed if you change pipes? might wanna check that out.

Yeah, make it a 1200 and if they could get it anywhere near the weight of the original it'd really rock. I'm reworking a
Sport I picked up last year into a scrambler but it's always in the back of my mind I'd like to take a rigid Evo and turn it into this...



BTW, Barnett HD sold that bike for 10,000 last year... Sweet little K.
