I rode my Sportster to Moto Mania
and oddly didn't take a bunch of photos of it. I took a lot of photos of other people's bikes but not mine. Weird.
Here's Dustin's Sporty:
Kevin got his new tank mounted up:
Sweet Tooth Leather (the air cleaner is particularly awesome):
Another Sporty with no mufflers:
Brett's "The Gypsy":
...and the honorary Sportster of the night was Dan's Royal Enfield. He's been modifying it a lot lately and just put a Sportster tank on it. I like it.
Speaking of Dan, he recently pointed out that most photos on my blog don't have people in them. It's true. I typically go out of my way to put the focus completely on the motorcycles featured in each photograph. I try to limit distractions in each photo and will occasionally go so far as to edit out people and things that happen get caught in the frame such as a random handlebar from a neighboring bike or a stray arm or leg of someone who was standing or walking nearby. Besides, would you really keep coming back to my blog if it was only filled with photos like this?
It's at this point that I can imagine Dan pointing out that featuring more photos such as the one above might drastically improve my female readership. He might be right, but I remain skeptical.

There are a lot of ways to build up a good shovel. I've had 74s and 80s but Im now working on a fresh 93". The wheels, cylinders, cam, and pistons will kill you if you don't try and shop smart. Retail, Sidewinder kits are gonna beat you over the head at anything from $1500-$2000. Lots of good things can be said for S&S products but that's not really the point of this series. The point is to look at some math and figure out how to go the distance without going broke.
Here's a pic of my pile of parts to build up my 93" motor. Stock cases and heads will work just fine with a little trim and shim work. A set of used T&O wheels are at the heart and soul of this thing. If you haven't looked into it here's the deal with T&O. T&O stuff is killer and they've been around since the beginning. They're experience and knowledge are in their products and the prices are very reasonable.
That said, these wheels were used and I paid used price.
Â They need to be checked carefully and rebalanced but overall, they are in great condition. After a chat with some guys at T&O, I decided I'd go with new Vtwin Cylinders to save some cash over the name brand stuff. The money I saved on the cylinders I turned around and dumped on some really nice forged S&S pistons. All the stroker parts are present and accounted for. The other parts like the cone, rockers, lifters, oil pump, etc are all on a shelf as well but those are stock parts that anyone can find in abundance.Â I'll post more pics as the motor comes together.
