    It's a completely new frame.


    Sorry, no comment on this question, as I do not see eye to eye with the manufacture of this particular frame.


    What's up Aaron? you meeting us in Mexico for EDR 2011?

    I'm thinking your bike may actually look better with a front fender. It seems a little unbalanced, possibly because of the substantial rear fender.

    That looks a lot better with the fender.

    The seat looks painful.

    Does the license plate grind in left hand corners, or is it hinged?

    definitely much better with the fender .

    How is that bag mounted? I've got an ancient saddlebag that I thought of doing something quite similar....

    not hip on the seat either, easy fix.
    ditto on the license plate holder. eventually back to stock tail light/license plate bracket.
    oh, and cut me some slack, Jack. i've haven't even gotten the damn thing yet!:D

    Supposedly some of those tractor style seats are actually quite comfortable. No pressure points because they are ergonomically shaped (like a mold of your ass!).

    In 1994 I bought a new teal Sportster. In 1995 a car turned left in front of me.
    The bike was a mess, it needed a new frame and engines cases so I decided to have a little fun with it.
    This bike was fun!!

    It's mine and I appreciate that.
    The MoCo got it real right with the Iron and base 883s as a whole
    proving once again that less is often more.
