Winter has struck hard, and its finally time to get back to work again.
Here is what i have(had). Got this bike new, summer 2011:

Plan was to use it "as is" at least for the last part of the -11 summer..., didnt happen.. and some minor changes were done:

Winter came again, and i got restless. Resulted in this for the 2012 season:

..in the mean time i had already hooked up with Rene (Mercury Moto) for some future plans (as i run out of time all the time, and i needed a skilled tin-worker with good taste to help me out).
Most guys goes Frisco these days, but i wanted something else for a stock frame Sportster.
Well, as i said, me and Rene had been working on some ideas for a while - I dont remember exactly when this was, but in the summer 2012 pictures started to drop into my mailbox.
I dont want to reveal any of Renes building "secrets" (he can post those pics himself if he like), but here are some of the pics i got:

http://www.speedfreak.no/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/20120820-112625.jpg

I think the tank was ready just days before Born Free, and Rene delivered it to Josh Scott there. The rear cowl/seat was ready just right after, and was sent to Josh for some magic paint.
Here is the result:

The tins are now safe in my possession over here in Norway, and im finally getting back to work on my bike. But there is still lots of things going on...im not just bolting these tins on and get on the road. Rene is going to do more magic, and we are working on building a completly new and different oiltank. A new exhaust system will be built down in hot southern California too. I guess we can post some pics as you progress Rene?
Stock wiring harness, fuel injection, ignition etc, are about to be removed:

http://www.speedfreak.no/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/20121227-095913-300x224.jpg

Ignition module will be integrated in the cowl, and comes from Germany: Altmann (http://www.amm.haan.de/)
Injection system will be replaced with an S&S Super E topped with a BCM aircleaner.
The stock 883 is upgraded to 1250ccm with help from a NHRS kit. Belt system will be replaced with a sprockets and chain. Other changes are in the plan too, but not decided on yet...

Plan is to have the bike back on the road when the snow melts some time in April.
Updates to come...
