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.

So, the front end is mostly done. Moving on to the rear end - swingarm / monoshock mount.

The plan is to mock up the stock swingarm with extensions to lengthen it, install the new 18" rear wheel, and get the geometry set right before jumping into design of the swingarm / mount.

Here is the rear wheel from Buchanan's:
- 18" Sun rim
- Storz billet alum hub
- TKC80 140/80-18

The forks are from a 2003 KTM 525 EXC (which you see sitting next to it in sad shape) and have been reworked by Hlebo Bros racing suspension for a 230 lb rider. I dont have the specs as the PO did the work and didnt know.

We'll see if they are adequete when the build is done. I had a dream last night that I was riding it and it worked perfectly...

It will be a 530 chain. The sprockets are on order: 24/51 tooth.

The hardest part is the wait for the parts to come in !

hey Jimmy thanks for putting this up looks like its going to come out great. This makes two builds going on in the forum with a sporty. I hope you guys stay far enough ahead of me to make it easier to follow suit. I already see I should have went with the ktm forks to make the forks a bolt on deal. We'll see how hard the conversion will be for the yz set up.
