    Default 03 Sportster 1200XL

    Bought this sportster last year. Wanted to get some other people input from others rather than just the dick heads I hang out with. So here is a little tranformation from the way I bought it to where I'm at now.

    First ride.

    Also took off the front turn signals. Im an idiot when it comes to electrical work. So if anyone knows an easy way to make the rear signal flash again that would be great. from what i understand they won't without the fronts in.

    Id like to get some of your guys thoughts one type of bars to go with. I was thinking about throwing on some Biltwell Keystones.

    Also I'm doing a speedo relocation from DK Customs and a tank lift next.

    Zombie performance have some really cool bars. I put 10" titty bars on mine ive been happy. I would take the reflectors off the forks and put a burly slammer suspension kit on it and you would be shitting in high cotton. I dig the bare metal look.

    The good thing about being "stock" is the room for potential. You can make cool transformations on these bikes with basic tools, some chopcult classified listing purchases, and a little creative thinking. Even rattlecan paint can be done very well as seen in other threads. I'd recommend have someone teach u basic electrical/wiring. It will give u the freedom to unplug stuff and simplify whatever u want instead of having those days where u go to swap your bars/signals etc. the day before your planned ride and now the bike wont start. Many aftermarket parts or vintage parts from other bikes and such won't use the same color codes as your wiring. Also, as recommended to me by a friend, get a manual specific to your model/year rather than "Sportster 86-2003" which are pretty common. It will help in putting certain assemblies back together and give a more accurate depiction of your electrical system. Have fun.
