The windshield is a Memphis Shades Del Rio. Blocks bugs without turbulence. The four mounting points allow for adjustment of windshield angle. I like to ride without a windshield but for any distance or speed over 60 I want a windshield. This windshield has the quick disconnect trigger locks - takes about 5 seconds to remove and about 15 seconds to put back on - so I'm happy with it.
Here you go Curvin'... I didn't get to ride the Sportster at all this weekend, the wife had me chauffeuring her around on the E-Glide.. I'm not complaining.

woodnbow, The bike looks great!! Can you tell me which chain conversion you used and where you got the round air cleaner ? I am working on a similar project.
I didn't use a kit. It's a flat drag spec 51T rear sprocket and the front is an .850 offset 14T from PBI? I'm probably going down to 23T in front. Both are for 530 chain. The air cleaner cover came from a swap meet a few years ago, it's a half inch larger circ. than the Ness A/C and I like the look, wish I could find another!
Thanks for the response. Let me know how the gear change effects cruising speed. No single track in mind for my project but the ability to slowly thump along a mountain grade would be great.
My 2002 Sportster 1200C amongst those waiting to pull out for Rolling Thunder 2012 and a pic from Virginia Beach. No significant customization. But I truly love this bike and have logged many trips and miles on it.

Simply beautiful. I love the flat black look, not on all bikes but this one looks excellent. Nice bike!
What do you do when a guy comes in wanting a "New" Sportster with FAT laced wheels, a spring seat, springer front end, minnie-apes, saddle bags, 4.5 gal. tank, V&H Pipes and a Super Sucker with a race tune?" You build him one!!!
Not for me but I'll bet it runs like stink!
Yeah, that's a neat setup, Dakez.
That's the kind of customer you want to see walking in the house.
Yep, easy money and everything comes from the H-D parts bin except for the seat.
The seat is HD... The pipes are V&H. The Springer is Pacho...
$21k and change invested in it. It is what he wanted. He is happy. Paid cash and would not even look at the bike until it was completely done.
Dakez, do the seat posts get locktite treatment from the factory? I'm having a devil of a time getting mine off to put on that same brown springer seat. Maybe I need to get it up on a lift rather than trying to remove it with a wrench under the fender and the Torx in the post.
Not "locktite" But they should have a small amount of a weak thread lock compound. You should not be having trouble though.
First ride of the season.
She's real tasty.
