    Don't do it! Keep that thing the way YOU like it. You like that tank lifted and you change it to suit what someone else thinks about, to me, it speaks volumes of you. Jesus man. Don't ask what color you think they want you to paint it.

    I quit asking people their opinion on how my bike looks because of threads like these. Do what you like. You'll never be done changing things around anyway, so do what floats your boat man!

    The tank and spring seat are failing. Rest is standard issue "that's about all you can do with hand tools" . You're at a crossroads, either hard tail it and never look back or put nice shocks back on and make us believe you wanna blow minds.

    man!
    You make it sound like this thread is outa hand and we're all shitting on him. He asked for our opinions and we gave it to him. If he didn't want to hear what we thought he wouldn't have asked. I think he got a lot of good advice. Now he can do whatever he wants with it.

    I agree. I put my two cents in because he asked, otherwise I keep my mouth shut about other peoples bikes. But the point here is don't ask for opinions on styling. Ask "what works" and "how do I do this" but if you like your bike run with it and never apologize to anyone. It's obvious he was stoked about it the way he put it together. Now he's changing it because of what we said. Ride it like that for awhile and see what you think after you've spent some time on it. I've been dead set positive about something I've done on my bike and tell myself I'll never change that. Then change my mind and totally re-do it only to regret it five minutes later. It's a never ending thing, that's what's fun about it.

    Not out of hand at all. He did ask, and there is no prob with people giving there opinion. I just quit asking because most people don't give a reason, they just drop a five word reply. Constructive critism is fine, like the posts that explain why they don't like the lift instead of just stating the lifted tank looks bad.

    exactly. it's YOUR bike, brother. you like the tank lifted? then lift that fuckin' tank, homie.

    personally, i don't mind it anymore than i mind all the other dumb shit lots of dudes throw on their bikes. it's all relative, man.

    Yes by all means remove the tank lift.

    and the whole "bobber" thing is played out......
    You need to stick to the timeless "Ride to Live" badgeing and tassles and other Genuwine Harley Davidson accessories. That stuff never goes out of style. And is always available at your local dealer.

    Fits the template of every other formulaic new Sportster posted on here every day. Lifted tanks look silly. Yours is no exception, Get rid of the pipe wrap, seat springs, struts, ---oh, wait--never mind. It's your bike, build it like you like it. And don't ask for opinions!!

    Throw on a 48 tank and then the attack bars you want will look much better. I personally think a sprung swing arm looks better then a strutted swing arm with sprung seat. There are lots of way you can keep a sissy bar on there too.

    I like it. You asked for opinions, take everyone's advice as it's all good and just make it your own. Your ass is gonna be on it, not mine!
