    I'm not in the market for that type of bike but you sure did a great job on it. Clean, classy, and has that old school Sportster feel to it. Great work and GLWS.

    This is the sporty I'd build if I was to build a sporty.
    Or the Sporty I'd buy if I had the money and was looking for a sporty.

    Great job Colby,
    GLWS,

    It is an absolute gorgeous bike. I saw it in person the other day. Colby did a great job. Wish I had room for another bike. I thinks it's a steal for sure now!

    yes, it was a 2003 sportster anniversary with the hideous OEM paint scheme on the tank, still bears the 100th anniversary badge on the motor.

    FINAL PRICE DROP.

    $4500, firm as a prom night pecker. No bullshit. I need to move the bike to make room for other things. This is less money than the parts I put on top of an already nice bike.
