I understand handling goes out the window, but it is it so bad you cant even ride it or what? did I do myself any favors by going with a 120 front compared to the stock 90
    i have no idea on the wide tire shit, so im of no use on that maybe someone else can tell ya, but i do know this, never put money into a sporty cause you will never get it back........
    finish out and see if ya like it can always swap the old shit back

    Try to keep them shock studs as short as possible since they are in single shear. I found a long 3/4" rear axle with standard timkens to be high fuckin' maintenance. Vulcan makes a lot of counter shaft sprocket possibilities.

    Unless you’ve already done it, you gonna need this, that’s if there’s any $$ left over after spiderwebs and Stereo.

    The bikes a 1200 custom from the start. I definitely wouldnít be doing this if it was a 883.

    If it’s stock you’ve got a measly 50-ish HP at the rear wheel..... your going to need the Hammer Performance 1275 kit to move that pig.....

    Don't forget to use some re-bar to go along with those spider webs.

    The fat tire/mid glide kit/stock front end 1200S Sporty I bought to flip is fairly comfortable for a Sportster. It doesn't flick as easily as stock but ya get used to pushing more to steer.

    I like wide handlebars that place your hands naturally for countersteering. Apehanger ergonomics suit my height (and bad back) but everyone's body is different. Your bars should work well.

    Unless you’ve already done it, you gonna need this, that’s if there’s any $$ left over after spiderwebs and Stereo.
    I'd wait to ride it first. Depending on how much cash he spent it might pay to flip if he's underwhelmed by the results, but it would need to be exceptionally sexy to turn a profit. Sporties in some areas are selling higher than I'd expect.

    If it's a keeper, then spend on the ponies.

    These will be my first set of apes. I went with Nash gimps 14inch with 1.5 Harley risers. I'm pretty damn short like 5'5.. 5'6 on a good day. I went back and forth between 12 and 14. sitting on the bike with no seat and they seem up there, but I should get used to it

    Some years back I got used to fuckin an ugly fat girl so anythings possible. Those 2 machines in your shop will cure any offset problems you have.

    Here's a sportster nightster built back in 2007ish by lockjaw cycles with a bros mfg wide tire kit. I think this looks great. Very similar direction I plan to go.
